Fat cells (adipocytes) secrete a hormone called leptin that tells our brain we have eaten enough.52 Leptin can also facilitate the breakdown of stored triglycerides in our adipocytes via the process of lipolysis. Heavy individuals have startlingly high blood levels of leptin, indicating that their cells have become resistant to the leptin that is supposed to prevent them from putting on so many fat pounds.

In a recently published study, irvingia demonstrated beneficial effects upon leptin blood levels, followed by weight loss and inches off the waistline.48,53 In addition to supporting healthy leptin sensitivity, irvingia has demonstrated the following beneficial effects on key aspects of metabolism:
Based on impressive human clinical data that irvingia supports weight loss of over 20 pounds on average in 10 weeks,47this standalone extract of Integra-Lean® African Mango Irvingia is also available to help promote optimal weight.
