ABSTRACT

World Health Organization (WHO) described obesity as an epidemic hazard worldwide, based on the data analysis of body mass index (BMI). Indeed, obesity facilitates the development of metabolic disorders (e.g. diabetes, hypertension), and cardiovascular diseases in addition to chronic diseases (e.g. stroke, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, cancers, and inflammation-based pathologies). According to studies in different countries, an obese person incurs health care expenditures at least 25% higher than a healthy person. Obesity as a primary disorder follows a positive energy balance. The identification of the primary causes of this imbalance remains challenging and comprises the majority of cases usually diagnosed after causes for secondary obesity are ruled out. This chronic disease results from complex interactions of genetic, behavioural, and environmental factors correlating with economic and social status and lifestyles. The review emphasized on herbal approach to treat obesity.

Keywords: Obesity management, Herbal formulation.
