|Abstract:||Obesity is not limited to developed countries and is spreading globally. Although some studies have been successful in achieving initial weight loss but most obese patients eventually regain their weight. Therefore, an effective means to sustain weight loss is still a major challenge. <i style="">Ayurvedic</i> classics give sufficient focus on obesity (<i style="">sthaulya</i> or <i style="">medoroga</i>) and advise diet to control the disease. To address the challenge, certain plants,<i> Apamarga</i> (<i style="">Achyranthes aspera</i> Linn.), <i>Agnimantha</i> [<i style="">Clerodendrum multiflorum</i> (Burm. F.) O. Ktze.], <i>Vrikshamla</i> [<i style="">Garcinia gummigutta </i>(L.) Robs.] and <i>Mustak</i> (<i style="">Cyperus rotundus</i> Linn.) reported with antiobesity properties and compound plant powder, <i style="">obeloss</i> (<i style="">Apamarga agnimanthadi churna=kalpita</i>) were clinically tested on 60 patients. Results of the study are encouraging in the management of obesity.|
