The relationship between lipid phytochemicals, obesity and its related chronic diseases

Abstract

Prevalence of obesity has received global attention in recent years, and lipid consumption has been considered as one of the direct reasons for obesity and related diseases. However, increasing evidences have indicated that edible vegetable oils could exert non-negligible physiological benefits in daily diet, including suppression of appetite, blood lipid lowering, prevention of adipocyte synthesis, and reduction of inflammatory response. Bioactive phytochemicals in lipids and oils, such as tocopherol, phenolic compound, and phytosterol, play an important role in these effects in vitro and in vivo studies. For these reasons, the present review focusses on minor bioactive components in oil and their anti-obesity effects, aiming to provide a systematic information on the relationships between these minor components and obesity, and related diseases.
