For the study, the researchers fed mice a high-fat and high-sugar diet for 8 weeks. Half of the mice received the extract of camu camu every day. The results of the experiment showed that mice that consumed camu camu extract had 50% less weight compared to the mice who didn’t receive this extract.

Study co-author professor André Marette says: “All these changes were accompanied by a reshaping of the intestinal microbiota, including a blooming of Akkermansia muciniphila and a significant reduction in Lactobacillus bacteria.”
