Exotic Fruit Camu Camu May Help in Obesity Treatment
According to the research from the Université Laval's Faculty of Medicine in Canada, an exotic fruit from the Amazon, called camu camu, might be useful in obesity treatment and metabolic disorders due to its positive influence on gut bacteria.
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.”
