Inonotus obliquus has been traditionally used for treatment of metabolic diseases; however, the mechanism remains to be elucidated. In this study, we found that the water‐soluble melanin complex extracted from I. obliquus improved insulin sensitivity and reduced adiposity in high fat (HF)‐fed obese mice. When the melanin complex was treated to 3T3‐L1 adipocytes, insulin‐stimulated glucose uptake was increased significantly, and its phosphoinositide 3‐kinase‐dependent action was proven with… Expand
