Lipase Inhibitors and Sesathin
I currently am taking Sesathin, and had an old bottle of Lipodrene which a E/C with some extras including cassia nomame. I couldn't find anything on pub med, but I found this about it...
This plant extract is a lipase inhibitor. A lipase inhibitor impairs the enzy
me responsible for the breakdown of fat, thereby blocking its function. Subsequently, fat molecules remain undigested and unabsorbed as they move through the gastrointestinal tract. This means their caloric content is not released into the bloodstream. Because Cassia inhibits fat from being absorbed into the bloodstream, there is less opportunity for fat to be stored. Unlike pharmaceutical lipase inhibitors, Cassia nomame does little to interfere with the absorption of fat soluble
A Japanese study
concluded that Cassia Nomame showed a 28 percent inhibition in lipase (fat) in laboratory tests. This study shows comparable results to pharmaceutical lipase inhibitors currently on the market. The potency of Cassia Nomame is what sets this extract apart from other ingredients. In laboratory tests this natural lipase inhibitor has shown comparable effectiveness to its synthetic, pharmaceutical counter
So since Sesathin increases the oxidation of fatty acids, and this blocks the breakdown of fats (dunno if oxidation and breakdown are interchangable) would there be any contraindications. Any help would be much appreciated.
