    BACKGROUND: Mulberries are a traditional edible food used to treat
    hepatic disease. The anti-obesity and hypolipidemic effects of mulberry water
    extracts (MWE) have attracted increasing interest. In the present study, MWE
    were assessed for their hepatic lipid-lowering potential when administered in
    fatty acid overload conditions in HepG2 cells.

    RESULTS: We found that MWE significantly reduced lipid accumulation,
    suppressed fatty acid synthesis, and stimulated fatty acid oxidation.
    Furthermore, MWE also inhibited acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase activities by
    stimulating adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). MWE
    attenuated the expression of sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1
    (SREBP-1) and its target molecules, such as fatty acid synthase. Similar results
    were also measured in the expressions of enzymes involved in triglyceride and
    cholesterol biosyntheses including glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase,
    3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase, and SREBP-2. In contrast, the
    lipolytic enzyme expression of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor α and
    carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 were increased.

    CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that the hypolipidemic effects of MWE
    occur via phosphorylation of AMPK and inhibition of lipid biosynthesis.
    Therefore, the mulberry extract may be active in the prevention of fatty liver.

  4. I'll have to look into this coconut butter. At first I kind of liked EVCO, but now it instantly activates my gag reflex. And this is from someone who loves coconuts. I just can't put down straight oil, even EVOO. So this sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the tip, guys!

  5. Macadamia nut oil is where it's at
