Dr. Oz Endorses New "Breakthrough"

Weight Loss Ingredient


This time of year one of the top New Year's resolutions made by millions of Americans is to lose weight. With weight loss in the spotlight, the cover story of the January 2012 issue of First For Women magazine is featuring Dr. Mehmet Oz discussing African Mango extract which he refers to as one of his “breakthrough fixes for women over 40.” Most importantly he emphasizes that consumers need to specifically look for the IGOB131® African Mango extract because that is the only one that is patented and clinically proven to promote weight loss. WellTrim® iG is IGOB131®, the scientific name for the authentic, patented, clinically-proven extract of African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis).

In response to this recent endorsement from Dr. Oz, Icon Group is pleased to announce that we are incorporating the IGOB131® name into our marketing for WellTrim® iG. This includes using the IGOB131® scientific name in conjunction with the WellTrim® iG trademark. We believe this enhanced marketing description will be a great benefit to our marketing partners in the promotion and sale of their WellTrim® iG (IGOB131®) supplements as it will ensure that consumers know that they are getting the one and only clinically proven African Mango extract for weight loss.

We encourage our marketing partners to incorporate the use of the IGOB131® scientific name into their marketing materials by describing the extract as WellTrim® iG (IGOB131®).
