To evaluate the anti-obesity effects of chlorogenic acid (CGA), the mice were fed a high-fat diet (HFD) upon chlorogenic acid treatment for 6 weeks. The results showed administration of chlorogenic acid (150 mg per kg per day) remarkably promoted body loss, reduced lipid levels in plasma and altered mRNA expression of lipogenesis and lipolysis related genes in adipose tissue. Moreover, chlorogenic acid also reversed the HFD-induced gutmicrobiota dysbiosis, including significantly inhibiting the growth ofand raising the growth of. Overall, the amelioration of HFD-induced gut microbiota dysbiosis by chlorogenic acid may contribute, at least partially, to its beneficial effects on ameliorating HFD-induced obesity.
