Abstract It is known that black soybean (BS) extract, rich in polyphenols, has beneficial effects against obesity, inflammation and insulin resistance. However, detailed effects of BS on lipid metabolism have not been documented well. In the present study, we compared fatty acid composition in visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissues of high-fat fed (HFF) rats and BS administered HFF rats. Black soybean administration for 6 weeks influenced neither body nor adipose tissue weights, blood… 
A Testa Extract of Black Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) suppresses Adipogenic Activity of Adipose-derived Stem Cells
It is suggested that ETCBS may suppress the differentiation of subcutaneous ADS cells into the precursors and maturing of adipocytes as well as the proliferation, activity, and adipogenicity of adipose stem cells.
Obesity-associated Pathways of Anthocyanins
The effects of anthocyanins on the obesity-associated mechanisms in the metabolism are considered and summarized under the light of recent research.
A Critical Review on Polyphenols and Health Benefits of Black Soybeans
The present review aims to provide up-to-date data on health benefit of BSB, which helps to explore their therapeutic values for future clinical settings.
Natural Compounds Promoting Weight Loss: Mechanistic Insights from the Point of View of the Medicinal Chemist
Activity on adrenergic receptors, modulation of adenosine receptors, interference with glucose and lipid metabolism, regulation of adipocyte cell cycle and inhibition of phosphodiesterases are the main molecular mechanisms by which different natural compounds act in promoting weight loss.
The effects of black soybean (Glycine max var.) on chronic cervical pain of sedentary office workers in a northern Chinese population.
Black soybean can ameliorate chronic cervical pain by down-regulating the levels of NMDAR, which is a common symptom of sedentary office workers.
Bhat (Black Soybean): A traditional legume with high nutritional and nutraceutical properties from NW Himalayan region of India
The potential role of black soybean for human nutrition and health benefits is summarized and its high nutritive value, remedial and health promoting effects due to presence of various bioactive compounds make this legume an excellent functional food.
The Therapeutic Potential of Anthocyanins: Current Approaches Based on Their Molecular Mechanism of Action
An in-depth look in preclinical, in vitro and in vivo, and clinical studies indicates the preventive effects of anthocyanins on cardioprotection, neuroprotection, antiobesity as well as their antidiabetes and anticancer effects.
Anthocyanin oligomers stimulate browning in 3T3‐L1 white adipocytes via activation of the β3‐adrenergic receptor and ERK signaling pathway
The beneficial effects of AO for the treatment of obesity with interesting properties such as regulating the browning of adipocytes and increasing thermogenic activity are indicated.


Site dependency of fatty acid composition in adipose triacylglycerol in rats and its absence as a result of high-fat feeding.
A black soybean seed coat extract prevents obesity and glucose intolerance by up-regulating uncoupling proteins and down-regulating inflammatory cytokines in high-fat diet-fed mice.
It is demonstrated that BE ameliorated obesity and glucose intolerance by up-regulating uncoupling proteins (UCPs) and down- Regulating inflammatory cytokines in C57BL/6 mice fed a control or high-fat diet containing BE for 14 weeks.
Anti-obesity and hypolipidemic effects of black soybean anthocyanins.
It is indicated that the anthocyanins in black soybean seed coats have an anti-obesity effect, which can reverse the effects of HFD on body weight, adipose tissue weight, and serum lipid contents.
Role of Fatty Acid Composition in the Development of Metabolic Disorders in Sucrose-Induced Obese Rats
Elevation of plasma glucose and insulin develop at the late phase of sucrose-induced obesity, when changes in fatty acid composition appear in fat and muscle, which suggests liver may be the initial site of fatty acid imbalance and that aberrations in hepatic fatty acids composition may lead to fatty acid imbalances in other tissues.
Saturated fatty acid-mediated inflammation and insulin resistance in adipose tissue: mechanisms of action and implications.
Reducing consumption of foods rich in SFA and increasing consumption of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean meats and poultry, fish, low-fat dairy products, and oils containing oleic acid or (n-3) FA is likely to reduce the incidence of metabolic disease.
Black soybean anthocyanins inhibit adipocyte differentiation in 3T3-L1 cells.
Structural and biochemical characteristics of various white adipose tissue depots
This review summarizes results of mainly human studies related to the differential characteristics of various WAT depots and indicates that visceral fat, localized within the abdominal cavity and mediastinum, and subcutaneous fat in the hypodermis is the main source of leptin and adiponectin.
Beneficial effects of subcutaneous fat transplantation on metabolism.
Relationship between serum concentrations of saturated fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids and the homeostasis model insulin resistance index in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The results indicate that the intake of diet fatty acid must be well balanced in diabetic patients and it is not always true to refrain from taking SFA and increase the unsaturated fatty acids in their diets.
Oleate prevents saturated-fatty-acid-induced ER stress, inflammation and insulin resistance in skeletal muscle cells through an AMPK-dependent mechanism
Findings indicate that oleate prevents ER stress, inflammation and insulin resistance in palmitate-exposed skeletal muscle cells by activating AMPK.
