In this study, we investigated the anti-obesity activity of Aceriphyllum rossii ethanol extract on rat fed a high fat diet. Male SD rats were divided into four groups. Group 1 was the control. Group 2 was fed a high-fat diet. Group 3 was the positive control, fed a high-fat diet supplemented with Garcinia Cambogia extracts. Group 4 was fed a high fat diet supplemented with ethanol extracts of Aceriphyllum rossii (EEAR). Precisely 166 mg/kg of powdered Garcinia Cambogia extracts was used for Group 3. Also, 250 mg/kg of EEAR was used for Group 4. The Body weight increased Group 2, but decreased Group 4. The serum total cholesterol in Group 2 increased by 15.26% when compared to Group 1, but only increased 5.29% in Group 3 and 4.29% in Group 4. The liver and mesenteric adipose tissue weights of Group 2 increased compared to Group 1, whereas they decreased in Group 3 and Group 4. As a result of measuring the concentration of triglycerides in extracted livers, Group 2 showed a significant increase compared to the Group 1, and Groups 3 and 4 showed significant decrease compared Group 2. These results suggest that Aceriphyllum rossii ethanol extracts may be useful as an anti-obesity agent.

We investigated α-amylase, α-glucosidase and lipase inhibitory activity of extracts collected from wild plants in Gangwon-do. 90 wild plants were collected and their water and ethanol extracts were obtained. Results of measuring α-amylase inhibitory activity indicated more than 80% of activity inhibition in 10 mg/mL concentration for ethanol extracts of three plants and water extracts of two plants. For α-glucosidase inhibitory activity, ethanol extracts of thirteen plants and water extracts of three plants showed more than 80% of activity inhibition in 10 mg/mL concentration. In the experiment of inhibiting lipase activity, ethanol extracts of seven plants and water extracts of one plants showed above 80% of activity inhibition in 10 mg/mL concentration. These results suggest that the selected extracts could be potentially used as a resource of bioactive materials for health functional foods.

This study investigated the physiochemical characteristics of Xanthoceras sorbifolia seed oil. Xanthoceras sorbifolia seed oil was extracted by supercritical fluid extraction (420 atm, 50°C), hexane extraction and heatpressed extraction (160°C, 180°C). Acid values and peroxide values were evaluated, as well as the degree of lipid oxidation. The heat-pressed (160°C) extraction gave a 53.5±2.5% higher yield of oil, compared with the other extraction methods. The acid values from the super critical fluid extraction were the highest, while peroxide values were highest from the heat-pressed extraction at 160°C (3.10 meq/kg). The contents of linolenic acid and oleic acid were 38.63~41.13% and 26.29~26.85%, respectively. Contents of stigmasterol and β-sitosterol were 6.01~6.49 mg/100 g and 58.19~59.85 mg/100 g, respectively. These results indicate that Xanthoceras sorbifolia seed oil can possibly serve as new edible oils.
