A phytochemical preparation known as "SLIMAX" (Professor Yoland Lim Health Care) was administered orally to human volunteers for a six-week period, using a double-blind experimental method. This preparation is an aqueous extract of the Chinese medicinal plants Hordeum vulgare, Polygonatum multiflorum, Dimocarpus longan, Ligusticum sinense, Lilium brownii and Zingiber officinale. Treatment with SLIMAX resulted in a significant decrease in parameters such as body weight, waist and hip circumference, and Body Mass Index (BMI), in all subjects tested. The basis of action was shown to be through modification of lipid metabolism, with significant effects on both the accumulation and the release of lipid from adipose tissue. The experimental results indicate a great potential for the use of this herbal preparation in treatment of human obesity.
In summary these medical studies by Monash University Medical and Nutritional Department’s Professor Frank Ng showed its benefits by reducing the size and number of adipose (fat) cells, helping to regulate the amount of food eaten, and to assist in the reduction in cholesterol.
