Abstract

Anti-obesity effects of the fermented wheat extracts with Bacillus subtilis (natto) strain DC15 (DC15-FE) were investigated using mice fed a high-fat diet. Body weights, the amount of abdominal visceral fat, and blood concentrations of triglyceride and glucose were significantly decreased in mice fed a high-fat diet containing 5% DC15-FE. These results suggest that DC15-FE have anti-obesity effects on a high-fat diet conditions.
