This study was performed to examine the combined effects of L-carnitine and isoflavone supplementation on weight reduction and body fat distribution in overweight women. Overweight/obese women (body mass index greater than 23 kg/㎡) who were not diagnosed any type of diseases were included in this study and sixty subjects (41.1±1.5 years, 25.9±0.3 kg/㎡) were randomly assigned to a placebo (n=30) or a supplement group (n=30, L-carnitine 300 mg+isoflavone 40 mg/day). We measured anthropometric parameters, abdominal fat distribution by computerizd tomography and blood components before and after the 12 week intervention period. After the 12 weeks of supplementation, subjects in L-carnitine and isoflavone supplement group showed a significant reduction of body weight (p less than 0.001), body fat % (p less than 0.05), and waist to hip ratio (p less than 0.01) whereas placebo group did not show any changes.
