Polygonum multiflorum [also known as Fallopia multiflora, Chinese Knotweed, Tuber Fleeceflower] root extract is marketed as fatty acid synthase inhibitor. Fatty acid synthase is an enzymatic system that catalyzes [accelerates] fatty acid synthesis. Animal studies are showing that tuber fleeceflower root significantly decreased food intake in rat models. Researchersconfirmed that fatty acid synthase inhibition is the mechanism responsible for its weight reducing effects. Tuber Fleeceflower show promise for developement of nontoxic and low-cost weight reducing drug.
