Abstract: The disorder of glucose and lipid metabolism is one of the important causes of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and fatty liver. Gallic acid of Puer tea can ameliorate diet induced glucose and lipid metabolism disorder through regulating energy metabolism and adipocyte differentiation, promoting glucose absorption and utilization, and increasing insulin sensitivity. Gallic acid regulates mitochondrial energy metabolism, insulin sensitivity and glucose absorption to maintain glucose and lipid metabolism homeostasis through AMPK and IR-Akt pathway and PPAR gamma receptor. In this review, we summarized gallic acid in Puer tea and its mechanism to improve the disorder of glucose and lipid metabolism induced by diet.

Key words: Puer tea, gallic acid, diet induced, glucose and lipid metabolism
