Turnip (Brassica rapa) roots ethanol extract (TE)

  • TE may exert an antidiabetic effect in type 2 diabetic mice by enhancing the glucose and lipid metabolism.
  • An alcohol extract of the roots of Brassica campestris – Chinese cabbage – prevents mice from becoming fat if you put them on a fattening diet. Researchers at the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology think this is because the extract upregulates the beta-3-adrenoreceptor in the fat cells.
