African mango

A fruit from the African rain forest that is allegedly effective in reducing weight (up to 4 kg/month) without changing one’s diet, improving lipid profile (decreased LDL-cholesterol and triglycerids, and increased HDL-cholesterol), reducing blood pressure, reducing post-prandial glucose levels and managing infections. 

The data supporting the claims of efficacy for weight loss were based on a small (40 subjects), statistically weak double-blind study performed in 2005.
