Lowering of triglycerides・Antiglycation effect
In a test, when rats on a high-fat diet were fed watermelon extract, triglycerides were lowered and leptin, a type of cytokine secreted by adipocytes reduced. Even in tests conducted on dogs, when given "Aqua Citrulline" prepared from watermelon extract to drink, triglycerides were lowered, and leptin was reduced. Also, it was possible to suppress the formation of struvite crystals and ammonium oxalate crystals causing urinary tract calculi.
