Anti-obese action of raspberry
Raspberry ketone (4-(4-hydroxyphenyl) butan-2-one; RK) is a major aromatic
compound of red raspberry (Rubus idaeus). The structure of RK is similar to
the structures of capsaicin and synephrine, compounds known to exert
anti-obese actions and alter the lipid metabolism. The present study was
performed to clarify whether RK helps prevent obesity and activate lipid
metabolism in rodents. To test the effect on obesity, our group designed the
following in vivo experiments: 1) mice were fed a high-fat diet including 0.5,
1, or 2% of RK for 10 weeks; 2) mice were given a high-fat diet for 6 weeks
and subsequently fed the same high-fat diet containing 1% RK for the next 5
weeks. RK prevented the high-fat-diet-induced elevations in body weight and
the weights of the liver and visceral adipose tissues (epididymal,
retroperitoneal, and mesenteric). RK also decreased these weights and hepatic
triacylglycerol content after they had been increased by a high-fat diet. RK
significantly increased norepinephrine-induced lipolysis associated with the
translocation of hormone-sensitive lipase from the cytosol to lipid droplets
in rat epididymal fat cells. In conclusion, RK prevents and improves obesity
and fatty liver. These effects appear to stem from the action of RK in
altering the lipid metabolism, or more specifically, in increasing
norepinephrine-induced lipolysis in white adipocytes.
