Cirsimarin, a poten flavanoid extracted from Microtea debilis (common name: weak jumby  pepper), may increase anti-fat deposition activity, suggests a study conducted in 1Université de Lyon,France and published in the November 2010 issue of the International Journal of Obesity.

Previous laboratory studies showed that cirsimarin can decrease the activity of isolated fat tissues within the laboratory. However, in this study, the researchers have proven that this potent flavanoid may be of value in decreasing the fat deposition in laboratory animals.

Cirsimarin-treated mice demonstrated decreased abdominal fat after receiving 25 to 50 mg per kilo of cirsimarin injection for 18 consecutive days. Thus, the researchers suggests further work-up and possible clinical trials to prove the effectiveness of cirsimarin in human subjects. Furthermore, they also project that cirsimarin may be used as a future medication for weight loss for overweight and obese individuals.
