PureMango Slim Review
African mango is one of the new trendy ways to lose weight. With African mango as its featured ingredient, PureMango Slim promises it will help you develop a trim and toned body by “reducing extra flab and surplus weight off your body.” It also aims to give you awesome abs, a great butt, and sleek legs.
But is PureMango Slim just another dieting trend, or does it actually produce the amazing results it says it will?
PureMango Slim Ingredients
PureMango Slim includes natural ingredients:
African mango – Heavily publicized as the new weight loss revolution, African mango is the featured ingredient in PureMango Slim. Trendiness doesn’t always indicate effectiveness, but it might in this case.
African mango is proven to produce positive weight-loss results without causing negative side effects. In one study, an African mango seed extract significantly reduced the weight of those studied.  It is unknown, however, whether African mango improves health over an extended time period.
Fennel – Fennel is an herb often used for digestion problems. It is generally thought to be safe, but it’s best not to use it during pregnancy or breast-feeding as it may expose the baby to toxic substances.
Maqui berry – This purple berry grows wild in southern Chile and may help prevent cholesterol oxidation in the blood, which leads to cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke. Thus, maqui berry improves cardiovascular health.
Green tea extract – It is said to decrease appetite and increase calorie and fat metabolism, though there isn’t much evidence as to its effect on weight loss. Side effects could include dizziness, nausea, bloating, and liver problems.
Licorice – Licorice is an FDA-approved food supplement used in many products; however, one study showed that excess intake can lead to sodium retention, and even stroke or heart failure. 
Senna – This herb has been approved by the FDA as a laxative. It could potentially cause stomach discomfort, cramps, and diarrhea. Long term use could cause the bowels to stop functioning normally. Although it is frequently used in weight loss products, there isn’t sufficient evidence to prove its effectiveness.
Although the ingredients are natural, it’s unclear whether it is safe to use PureMango Slim over an extended time period. Some of the ingredients, such as licorice and senna, have the potential for negative side effects which could lead to even larger issues.
PureMango Slim Reviews
There are plenty of reported success stories from PureMango Slim users. Jennifer Theuriau of the news program Consumer Watch tried it combined with a colon cleanse for four weeks and lost 27 pounds. She wrote: “After one week on the diet using both products I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I wasn’t even hungry . . . After the fourth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 27 lbs.”
While many join Jennifer in singing PureMango Slim’s praises, others report little to no result from using the product.
PureMango Slim Usage
There is no information on the website as to how much you should take. One bottle is supposedly a month’s supply, and many consumers took two PureMango Slim pills per day.
Purchase PureMango Slim
The only way to purchase PureMango Slim is through the website, PureMangoSlim.net.
Fortunately, there is a free trial offered on the website ($4.95 shipping and handling). If you choose to continue with the product, the cost is $84.78 each month. However, if you choose not to continue with the product, you must cancel within 14 days from the day you ordered. You can cancel online or by calling (888) 779–0490.
It may be reasonable to try PureMango Slim, but using it for a long time period could be costly.
The Bottom Line
African mango products are exploding in the news as a popular way to lose weight, and I can’t deny that people’s results are impressive. Yet I’m unsure how effective and safe PureMango Slim is.
If you’re sold on African mango, you may want to explore other products and see what you can find.
