In a vivo study of effects of Ginseng saponin and ginsenosides exert anti-obesity effects with mice fed long-term on a high-fat diet (HFD) by the Korea Ginseng Corporation Ginseng Research Institute, Yuseong-gu, Daejeon, Korea (1), researchers found that KRGE reduces the levels of cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), serum triglycerides, and atherogenic indices. Levels of leptin, adiponectin and insulin, which regulate glucose and lipid metabolism, were impaired profoundly by HFD and suggested that KRGE is effective in preventing obesity.
