1. Beware of
Fake African Mango from China
In an effort to make a quick buck, many unethical companies
import cheap, and oftentimes fake, African Mango from China. Make
no mistake, this isn't 100% pure, authentic African Mango from the
rainforests of West Cameroon, Africa, but rather cheap, low-grade
Chinese mango extract.
Just as concerning is the unsanitary manufacturing conditions in
China. It's no secret that the manufacturing plants and warehouses
are filthy and unregulated. From lead in children's toys to
impurities in food and supplements, the goods being imported from
China lack any kind of quality control.
Unlike other companies who take these kind of cheap short cuts,
we sell only 100% pure and authentic African
Mango extract, that is tested for quality and purity and
encapsulated in pharmaceutical-grade U.S. manufacturing facilities,
which follow United States Good Manufacturing Practices.
Rest assured, when you buy from
us, you're getting the real deal,
not a cheap knock-off.
2. Beware of
Auto-Rebill and Auto-Reship Scams
Another problem you need to be aware of is companies selling
African Mango online, who enroll unsuspecting consumers in those
shady and, in our opinion, unethical auto-rebill /
For example, many companies advertise "free trials" of their
cheap African Mango products. Consumers think they are only paying
for shipping and handling — but when you read the fine print,
what these consumers are often not aware of is they have only 14
days to return the product or they will be automatically enrolled
in the company's "auto-ship" program, where the
consumer's credit card is automatically charged on a monthly
In our opinion, companies that follow this kind of
business model are nothing more than scam artists.

3. Beware of
"Pixie Dusting" and Unnecessary Added
Another shady thing unscrupulous companies do to cut corners and
save money is a practice called "pixie dusting." What these scam
artists do is advertise that their supplements contain "African
Mango" but, in reality, the product contains just a pinch — an
ineffective "pixie dusting" — of African Mango with the rest
of the capsule being filled with corn starch or some other
Another thing companies do, such as the
company selling a product called "African Mango Plus," is add
unnecessary ingredients, such as chromium and caffeine, to each
capsule. For example, African Mango Plus contains a
whopping 200 mg of caffeine per capsule! That's the
equivalent of almost 3 cups of coffee.
Why a company would add this much caffeine to an African Mango
capsule is beyond us beyond us because African Mango is most
effective when used 30 minutes before meals, especially dinner,
which is typically the largest meal of the day for most people.
The fact that African
Mango Plus contains 200 mg of caffeine per capsule precludes
most people from taking this product before dinner — unless,
of course, these folks are looking to stay up half the night.
What's more, new research shows caffeine may
actually inhibit fat loss by increasing
Further, African Mango Plus contains a nutrient called
chromium, which, according to recent research,
may carry numerous untoward side effects.
Fact is, in the clinical
research, people who achieved weight loss with African Mango
took capsules that contained African Mango extract (irvingia
gabonensis) and only African Mango extract —
no fillers or other unnecessary additional ingredients.
