Tamanna Talreja*, Parmendra Sirohi, Tribhuwan Sharma and Asha Goswami

ABSTRACT

Obesity is a metabolic disease in which excess body fat has accumulated such that it may have an adverse effect on health. It is the major chronic health problem which has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. Its treatment includes synthetic drugs and bariatric surgery, which may entail high costs and serious complications. Plant-based medicinal agents offer an alternative approach for the management of obesity. The demand for plant-based medicines is ever growing due to their cost effectiveness and less or no side effects. This review compiles available clinical trials literature (human and animal studies) on the two most important medicinal plants Achyranthes aspera and Cissus quadrangularis in the management of obesity. In studies, significant weight loss and no adverse effects or mortality were observed. In conclusion, these herbs have an acceptable level of evidence in obesity management due to having good number of clinical trials and rich scientific background.Obesity, bariatric surgery, Achyranthes aspera, Cissus quadrangularis.

Keywords: Obesity, bariatric surgery, Achyranthes aspera, Cissus quadrangularis.
