ABSTRACT

Nowadays, people suffering from obesity/cholesterol are often heard. This disease is due to the excess of mainly carbohydrate and lipid in an individualís diet and the lack of expenditure of energy such as exercise. Therefore, the patawali plant, or its scientific name, Tinospora crispa is believed to be a traditional cure for the problem. A sample of patawali plant (Tinospora crispa) juice, lime juice, ginger juice and grapefruit juice was prepared for the experiment. Next, fresh chicken fats are chosen and prepared as they contain a high value of cholesterol. The chicken fat was rinsed with water, dried using a filter paper and then immersed in the juice samples for a duration of 1 hour. The initial and final mass of chicken fat was recorded. At the end of the experiment, it is found that ginger and Tinospora crispa shows significant in reducing the mass of chicken fat. Thus, it can be concluded that Tinospora crispa and ginger has the potential to be the future cure for obesity.
