Botanical Blend May Aid With Weight Loss

Pancreatic lipase is an enzyme that is secreted by the pancreas when fat is present. A recent study suggests that taking a botanical blend containing Coleus forskohlii, Salacia reticulata, and Sesamum indium may inhibit pancreatic lipase, and reduce body fat by as much as 5%.

Participants in the study included men and women with a BMI between 25 and 30. Over the course of six weeks, the participants were given either 1000 mg of the botanical blend in the form of four 250 mg soft gels or a placebo.

At the conclusion of the study, the researchers found that the participants receiving the botanical blend had higher lipase inhibition. The results were more pronounced when the three extracts were taken together than when taken separately. They also found that the botanical blend group had 5% more fat loss than the placebo group.

Researchers led by Dr. Vladimir Badmaev from the American Medical Holdings conducted the study. It was published in the May 2015 issue of Journal of Functional Foods.

The botanical blend used in this study was a proprietary blend. However, previous studies suggest that natural lipase inhibitors may also be found in Japanese ginseng, polyphenols, flavonoids, and caffeine.
