"Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food", using foods as medication has been a dream of many scholars and scientists over past many centuries. In order to achieve these, consumption of whole food medicine must accompany with moderated exercise, change of diet and life style.

Recent study conducted by the Taipei Medical University, suggested that indole-3-carbinol (I3C), a cruciferous vegetable derivative, may have a potential effects in decreased body weight and fat accumulation in obese patients

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat has accumulated overtime.
According to the Body Mass Index(BMI), a BMI over 30 is an indication of obesity. Approximately, 68% of American population are either overweight or obese.

According to the Taipei Medical University indole-3-carbinol (I3C), isolated from Cruciferous Vegetables, induced anti obesity expression by inhibited intracellular lipid accumulation of cell size increase of fat cells and pro inflammatory cytokine interleukin-6 (IL-6), the parameters related to obesity.

In Male C57BL/6 mice fed with a control diet (C group), high-fat diet (HF group) and HF+5 mg kg(-1) I3C (HFI group).than HFI group injected with I3C intraperitoneally for 12 weeks, I3C treatment group ameliorated free radicals production and increase expression of gene in regulated fatty acid storage and glucose metabolism, important parameters in related to obese onset.

Additionally, in vivo treatment with I3C reduced inflammation caused by the infiltration of macrophages, a type of white blood cell in epididymal adipose tissue and in vitro, addition of I3C decreased oxidative production and activation of inflammatory expression.

Dr. Chang HP, the lead author said, " decreased body weight and fat accumulation,....., were associated with improved glucose tolerance and with modulated expression of adipokines(secreted by adipose tissue.) and lipogenic(the process converted to fatty acids)-associated gene products"

In fact, Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) prevents diet-induced obesity by modulation of multiple genes expression involved the process of cell differentiation in production of fat cell and induced heat cause by inflammatory of fat cell underneath the skin.

By inhibiting the gene expression involved obesity and regulating the cell differentiation in fat cell and preventing fat tissues accumulation through its chemical constituents, cruciferous vegetable may have a potential benefit in preventing obesity and metabolic disorders.
