Promising consumers that they’ll lose 28 lbs. in 10 weeks, MangoZyte is a lesser-known African mango supplement designed to stimulate “all natural weight loss in a shorter period of time than any other compound ever tested.
With fantastic customer testimonials such as “I’ve lost 12 pounds in the first month” and “me and my husband have each lost over 20 pounds since we started taking MangoZyte,” it would seem that MangoZyte is the perfect solution we’ve all been waiting for.
However, do these testimonials reflect MangoZyte’s true potential? Or is this diet pill little more than an overhyped placebo?
What’s Under the Lid?
As its name implies, MangoZyte contains the ever-popular superfruit African mango. Also known as Irvingia gabonensis, African mango is rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that improve overall health and enhance physical performance.
Numerous studies promote African mango as an ideal weight loss ingredient. For example, in one study conducted by the Lipids in Health and Disease, 28 participants received an Irvingia gabonensis extract three times daily for one month while 12 participants received a placebo.
“At the end, the mean body weight of the IG group was decreased by 5.26 to 2.37% and that of the placebo group by 1.32 to .41%. . .The obese patients under Irvingia gabonensis treatment also had a significant decrease of total cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol, Triglycerides, and an increase of HDL-cholesterol.” 
Not a bad start.
However, I’m a little intrigued by this statement on the MangoZyte FAQ page:
“The key is Apopadex™, our proprietary complex of 5 compounds centered around Acacia Rigidula extract. MangoZyte’s other innovative compounds include Methylsynephrine, Phenylethylamine HCL, Cassis Nomame Extract, Theobromine, Yohimbe and ECGC.”
This is almost a word for word copy of another diet pill I’ve reviewed: Zyatonix.
While these weight loss ingredients are effective, I’m a little surprised to see them in MangoZyte.
Acacia Rigidula – stimulates beta receptors to increase metabolism
MethylSynephrine – stimulates the central nervous system to increase energy levels
Phenylethylamine – creates a sensation of euphoria
Cassis Nomame – inhibits dietary fat digestion
Theobromine – increases energy levels without acting extensively on the nervous system
Yohimbe – acts as an aphrodisiac, improving mood and energy
EGCG – eliminates free radicals and toxins
Since this ingredient profile is copied from another product, I can’t help but question, are they even in the formula? Was this an oversight on the manufacturers’ part? Or are these ingredients really in MangoZyte?
Naturally, I decided to contact customer support. Here’s what Sarah Connelly said: “The product only contains African mango (Irvingia Gabonensis). No other ingredients.”
While I’m happy to hear that MangoZyte does not contain the listed stimulating ingredients, the fact remains that the FAQ page is copied and incorrect.
If one page is inaccurate, is the rest of the website inaccurate as well? It certainly casts a shadow of doubt on MangoZyte’s credibility.
Should You Be Worried About Side Effects?
Assuming MangoZyte utilizes a clinically proven African Mango concentration, potential side effects would be mild: headaches and flatulence.
However, African mango extracts vary between companies, and it’s difficult to determine whether or not MangoZyte’s ingredient concentrations will be both safe and effective.
When choosing an African mango supplement, experts at WebMD suggest you look for pure IG extracts with the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) seal to ensure product quality. Since MangoZyte is produced in London, it does not have this seal.
How to Get the Best Results with MangoZyte
MangoZyte works best when taken 1 hour before breakfast and 1 hour before lunch.
Although not mentioned on the official website, following a healthy diet and regular exercise ensures long-lasting weight loss results.
MangoZyte is only available at MangoZyte.com. There are three plans available:
• 1 Month Supply: $39.90
• 3 Month Supply: $79.90
• 6 Month Supply: $139.90
$40 for a single ingredient is a bit pricey, wouldn’t you think?
According to customer support, however, ““The 60 day money back guarantee starts from the purchase date. You have 60 days to contact customer service for return information but basically you have to send the remaining portion back to us and we refund the credit card on file.”
I had to admit, I was a little impressed with how quickly customer support answered my email. Prompt customer support is always a good sign.

What’s the Connection?
I can’t help but be intrigued by the connection between MangoZyte and Zyatonix. MangoZyte, copyrighted in 2010, has the exact same FAQ page as Zyatonix, copyrighted in 2012. The dates would imply that MangoZyte came first, so Zyatonix would be the copycat.
However, Zyatonix is a rebranded product. It was originally named Zyatrim and contained all the same ingredients that it has now. Although I can’t find the original copyright date for Zyatrim (since it was discontinued), RipOffReport.com has an entry dating back in 2008 complaining about Zyatrim’s return policies.
Consequently, this would make MangoZyte the copycat. But why would manufacturers copy the FAQ in the first place? Is there a connection between the two products?
After a bit of digging, I learned that Mangozyte is produced by Dartford Kent Nutraceuticals in London while Zyatonix is produced by Superbalife International LLC in California. On the surface, these companies would seem disconnected and I’d have myself a dead end.
However, further research revealed that both Dartford Kent Nutraceuticals and Superbalife are associated with the male enhancement supplement Longinexx.
According to one Longinexx reviewer at SiteJabber.com, “Your card will be charged from Superbalife International which by the way is the main company that also sells other supplements. . . Take in mind the company for Longinexx is located in London but you get charged and supposedly shipped from CA . . .”
Additionally, both products receive suspiciously positive reviews from DietPillInsider.com. The two products receive the highest ratings with hundreds of consumer reviews – none of which are available to the public.
Both MangoZyte.com and Zyatonix.net (which redirects to Zyatonix.com) are registered GoDaddy sites.
Are the two companies working together to sell their products?
I’d love to know more, but there simply isn’t enough information available. Feel free to fill in the gaps by leaving a comment below!
With so many unanswered questions, I don’t feel comfortable recommending MangoZyte at this time.
African mango on its own is a great ingredient and may help dieters lose weight when used correctly. But, the high price and questionable background make me question the product’s reliability.
Until I know more about the product and its manufacturers, I think you’d be better off looking for a more reliable supplement.
