Objectives: Several experimental studies have reported antiobesity and lipid-improving effects of. However, clinical studies on its effects are lacking. This study was designed to evaluate the impact ofpeel pellet (CUPP) on obesity and lipid profile.

Methods: For 118 patients with body mass index (BMI)>23 who tookpeel pellet (CUPP) for 4 weeks in a Public Health Center, laboratory and biometric readings before and after CUPP administration were analyzed.

Results: Mean age of these subjects was 53.8±10.6 years (range: 18-75 years). There were 88 (74.6%) females in the study sample (n = 118). A significant (<0.01) decrease in BMI from 27.47±2.24 to 27.27±2.22 was observed in all subjects after CUPP treatment and 65.3% (N = 77) of them lost 1.03±0.83 kg of weight after 4 weeks of treatment. Total cholesterol level was significantly (<0.01) decreased from 204.0±37.4 mg/dL to 193.5±36.5 mg/dL. Significant (<0.05) decreases in levels of low-density lipoprotein, cholesterol, and triglyceride were also observed.

Conclusions: These results suggest that CUPP in practice could help weight control and improve total cholesterol level. Findings of this study provide clinical foundation for future large-scale trials to establish clinical benefits of CUPP.
