Obesity plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome. French maritime Pine bark extract (PBE) in addition to its antioxidant properties, has protective effects on metabolic syndrome component through several mechanisms. At present, there are few data on the net impact of PBE on metabolic syndrome factors in obesity. This trial report the results of 2-month period supplementation of 38 obese women received weight loss diet and PBE (150mg/day) or placebo. The metabolic syndrome parameters and body composition were assessed at the beginning and end of the study. The results showed PBE has significant protective effects on metabolic syndrome factors including central obesity, TG, HDL, BP and FBS (P<0.05), decrease metabolic syndrome risk in obesity and improve body composition. Thus, The PBE is considered as a new approach to obesity and metabolic syndrome prevention. © 2018 Tehran University of Medical Sciences. All rights reserved.
