Keemun black tea extract contains potent fatty acid synthase inhibitors and reduces food intake and body weight of rats via oral administration.

Abstract

The inhibitory effects of a black tea extract on fatty acid synthase were measured through inhibition kinetics. The Keemun black tea extract showed more potent inhibitory activity on fatty acid synthase than green tea extract. Additionally, the inhibitory ability of the black tea extract depended on the extracting solvent and the conditions used. Only 10-23… (More)
