Natural dietary products have been thoroughly studied for their effects of antiadipogenesis to prevent and treat obesity for decades. Nevertheless, in the past few years appetite control for the treatment of obesity has attracted much attention as a new target. Homeostatic control of energy intake involves a complex system that conveys peripheral signals to the central nervous system where multiple signals are integrated and then provide feedback to regulate satiation. This perspective aims at elucidating the neuronal mechanisms of food intake and energy balance as well as providing an alternative pathway of controlling weight using natural dietary products.
