Nobiletin and Weight Loss

nobiletin and weight lossNobiletin is a flavonoid found in the peel of the tangerine fruit. Dr. Murray Huff, from the University of Western Ontario, just published research in the journal Diabetes, adding weight to the growing proof that extracts of tangerine peel can not only prevent obesity and type II diabetes, but even prevent atherosclerosis.

Chinese medicine has used tangerine peel, the main source for nobiletin and weight loss in herbal medicine, for thousands of years.

Murray Huff, a vascular biology scientist at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, said: “The Nobiletin-treated mice were basically protected from obesity. And in longer-term studies, Nobiletin also protected these animals from atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque in arteries, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. This study really paves the way for future studies to see if this is a suitable treatment for metabolic syndrome and related conditions in people.”

Chinese medicine has used tangerine peel, the main source of nobiletin, for thousands of years in formulas used to treat obesity, phlegm related conditions, digestive disorders and even coughs.

This new research is really exciting to us here at TCM Nutra. We knew that tangerine peel contained nobiletin and that it was an important contribution to our herbal formula for weight loss, DiaSlim, but we did know realize how powerful nobiletin actually is for prevention. Prevention is the core focus of our program, The TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) Weight Loss Solution, of which, DiaSlim is a part. DiaSlim is a 9 herb formula for natural weight loss and blood sugar regulation that includes tangerine peel extract and thus nobiletin.
