The present study was undertaken to evaluate the anti-obesity potential of a phenolic- rich herbal tea beverage produced in northern regions of Cameroon from the leaves of Stathmostelma sp. (Statroltea). The effect of Statroltea (5 mg/Kg/day) on lipid metabolism was assayed in male rats fed on either standard or high-fat diet for 60 days. Rats of both diet fed Statroltea presented significant (P < 0.05) reduced body weight than their controls with a rate of reduction varying from 5 to 15%. The consumption of Statroltea for 60 days significantly lowered abdominal fat index, blood total and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and hepatic lipids (P < 0.05). Fecal lipids were found to be more excreted in all Statroltea fed rats. This is the first report on the effect of Stathmostelma sp. leaves on lipid metabolism and the study demonstrates that Statroltea, an herbal tea from Stathmostelma sp. leaves has a potential as anti-obesity functional food beverage.
