Abstract: With the improvement of people's living standards, the incidence of obesity has been rising, which has become a serious health problem of the society. Tea polysaccharide, as an acid heteropolysaccharide combined with protein, can regulate food intake and energy absorption, regulate adipogenesis, enhance antioxidant defense enzyme activities and reduce inflammation, regulate intestinal flora disorders and maintain different pathways such as intestinal barrier integrity, thereby effectively regulates obesity. The regulation mechanism of tea polysaccharides on obesity was reviewed based on the researches in recent years.

Key words: tea polysaccharide, obesity, regulation, mechanism of action
