Piperine may be considered a natural ingredient for the treatment of metabolic dysfunction in obese patients, some scientists suggested.
Piperine is a phytochemical alkaloid in the class of organosulfur compound, found abundantly in white and black pepper, long pepper, etc.
Obesity is a medical condition characterized by excess body fat accumulated in the body over time.
While overweight is a condition of excess body weight relative to the height.
According to the Body Mass Index(BMI), a BMI between 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight, while a BMI of over 30 is an indication of obesity. According to the statistic, 68% of the American population is either overweight or obese, a leading cause of metabolic dysfunction.
In other words, obesity is a metabolic disorder that predisposes patients to numerous diseases which not only cause a financial burden to the health care system but also increase the reduction of quality of life of the patients.
There is no coincidence that the widespread of obesity over the past several decades are correlated to the promotion of the Western diet. Some researchers firmly suggested that diet rich in saturated and trans fat, red meat and processed foods and less in fruits and vegetables and whole grain is associated with the onset of obesity.
Dr. Bortolin RC, the lead scientists in the study to examine the metabolic parameters and gut microbiota changes in rat fed with the Western diet suggested: "diet, and not the obese state, was the major driving force behind gut microbiota changes" and "WD-fed rats developed obesity and obesity-related comorbidities independent of major alterations in gut microbiota composition (dysbiosis), whereas CAF-fed rats developed the greatest dysbiosis independent of obesity".
On finding a natural ingredient or whole food for the prevention and treatment of widespread obesity-induced metabolic dysfunctions in the Western world, researchers examine the antimetabolic phytochemical Piperine isolated from the black pepper.
The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 8-week trial included the assessment of the efficacy of metabolic changes versus a placebo.
In a total of 86 overweight subjects selected to the study, 41 patients (2/14 F/M; age 43.7 ± 8.5; BMI 30.3 ± 3.5 kg/m(2)) were assigned to the supplemented group and 45 (29/16; age 40.7 ± 10.2; BMI 30.0 ± 2.7) to the control group.
