Irvingia Gabonensis Overview

Irvingia Gabonensis Irvingia gabonensis, commonly known as African mango or wild mango, is a tropical fruit tree native to West and Central Africa. The tree produces a distinctive fruit with a large seed, known as the African mango seed or dika nut, which has gained attention for its potential health benefits. The seeds of Irvingia gabonensis are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are often used for their purported weight loss and metabolism-boosting properties. Some studies suggest that Irvingia gabonensis may help reduce body weight and improve metabolic parameters, possibly due to its impact on appetite regulation and fat metabolism.

Bosentan Overview

  • Bosentan is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH, high blood pressure in the vessels that carry blood to the lungs) in adults and children 3 years of age and older. Bosentan may improve the ability to exercise and slow the worsening of symptoms in patients with PAH. Bosentan is in a class of medications called endothelin receptor antagonists. It works by stopping the action of endothelin, a natural substance that causes blood vessels to narrow and prevents normal blood flow in people who have PAH.
