suppressive effects by leaves of the dypsis lutescens palm on fat accumulation in 3t3-l1 cells and fat absorption in mice.the methanol extract of dypsis lutescens leaves showed inhibitory effects on lipase activity in vitro and on triglyceride accumulation in 3t3-l1 pre-adipocytes. further experiments using the extract on mice demonstrated a suppressive effect on the postprandial elevation of blood triglyceride level and an anti-obesity effect on obese mice induced by a high-fat diet. d. lutescens will accordingly be useful for preventing obesity.201222232261
