Obesity is a global problem that affects about 1.9 billion people. Porous silica is gaining popularity for its anti-obesity properties, with human trials demonstrating that it is safe for therapy.
Studies found that engineered silica particles manufactured from pure sand had anti-obesity benefits by inhibiting the action of digestive enzymes known as α-Amylas and pancreatic lipase in the gastrointestinal tract.
This study illustrates how sand hinders enzyme activity from impeding the body’s intake of fats and sugars while alluding to an ideal design for the finest anti-obesity effects. The new silica-based therapy will be easier on the stomach and have fewer unfavorable side effects associated with the current anti-obesity medication, Orlistat. https://newatlas.com/medical/porous-particles-purified-sand-obesity/ https://www.newswise.com/articles/dig-in-sand-serves-up-a-possible-cure-for-obesity
