Hello, I am Jinny, a pharmacist.

Autumn has arrived again this year. It is said that in the fall, as sunlight decreases and serotonin secretion decreases, appetite and the desire to eat carbohydrates increase. Also, as the temperature drops, our body tries to accumulate subcutaneous fat. It is true that these changes, which last from fall to early spring, are not always welcome.

Today, I would like to introduce you to a cutting-edge diet material that can be used to manage body fat through long-term intake from fall to spring when it is easy to gain weight. It is Morosil®, a plant-based diet ingredient extracted from Moro oranges grown in the Etna volcanic region of Sicily. Morosil®, whose core ingredient is C3G, a type of anthocyanin abundant in Moro oranges, has not only been recognized by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety for its functionality in reducing body fat, but also has been confirmed to improve seven indicators related to diet according to intake in human application tests. Let’s take a closer look at the clear efficacy of this new diet material.

1. Reduces Weight ∙ BMI ∙ Waistline ∙ Hip Circumference

In the past, many people focused on weight (kg), when in diet, but these days, the main purpose of diet is to maintain a healthy and balanced body line by paying attention to body weight, BMI, and 'eye body' that can be seen with the naked eye. Thus, when evaluating the benefits of functional diet ingredients, contribution to ‘eye body’ beyond weight loss has emerged as a key evaluation factor.

In 2018, Medical Treatment and New Medicine reported the results of a human trial evaluating the benefits of Morosil® intake in 60 non-obese adults with a BMI of 27. This study reports that following 12 weeks of intake of 400 mg/day of Morosil®, a decrease in body weight and BMI, as well as a decrease in waist circumference of approximately 7 cm and hip circumference of approximately 6 cm, was observed.

“In conclusion, we found that 12 weeks of Morosil® contributed to weight loss, improved BMI, and reduced waist and hip circumference even in non-obese people. Additionally, during the 12-week trial period, “No safety issues occurred.”

2. Reduces Abdominal Fat, Visceral Fat, and Subcutaneous Fat

Unlike diets that are intended to satisfy an individual's subjective aesthetic tastes and desires for self-expression, there are also diets that are essential for the health of our bodies. It is the management of abdominal fat and visceral fat. Especially, visceral fat accumulated in the abdominal cavity and around the intestines must be managed. If the amount visceral fat increases, it can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes due to metabolic syndrome, hyperlipidemia, and insulin resistance.

As the management of visceral fat is of high importance in maintaining health, it has become a major issue for academics to review whether Morosil®, can contribute to the management of visceral fat. Human application tests published in Nutrients in 2022, reported that consumption of Morosil® improves BMI, waist and hip circumference, as well as abdominal fat, visceral fat, and subcutaneous fat.

"Both fat mass and fat distribution (visceral fat and subcutaneous fat) were significantly improved in the Morosil® intake group compared to the placebo group. Additionally, all safety indicators related to hepatotoxicity did not fall outside the normal range throughout the study. "

3. Inhibits Fat Production

How does Morosil®, which has been shown to have various diet-related benefits in human trials, work? A research report published in Natural Product Research in 2021 reveals that the body fat reduction mechanism of Morosil® is anti-lipogenic activity based on antioxidant capacity.

Adipogenesis refers to the process by which fatty cells, or adipocytes, develop and accumulate as fatty tissue in various areas of the body. If you continuously consume more energy than you expend, tissue fat cells not only proliferate in number but also become enlarged in size. This study describes the mechanism by which Morosil® inhibits this lipogenic process.

“The results of this study show that Morosil® exerts antioxidant and anti-adipogenic activities during adipocyte differentiation of preadipocytes.”

Anti-adipogenic and anti-oxidant effects of a standardised extract of Moro blood oranges (Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck) during adipocyte differentiation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes. Natural Product Research, 35(16), 2660-2667..

Today, we learned about the benefits of consumption and body fat reduction mechanism of Morosil®, a new cutting-edge diet material obtained from the Etna volcanic region in Sicily. As many studies suggest that it can be consumed not only for diet but also to prevent overweight and obesity, it would be a good idea to try it in the fall and winter when body fat is easy to increase, like clothes getting wet in a light rain.

I hope you have a healthy day both physically and mentally. This was Jinny.
