- ... A-type procyanidins is rich in litchi pericarp. This study evaluated the prevention and anti-diabetic effect of A-type oligomeric procyanidins (A-OPC). The results showed A-OPC was more effective than B-type oligomeric procyanidins (B-OPC) of lotus seedpod. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) was activated in liver and skeletal muscle. The protein levels of glucokinase (GK), glucose transporter ty ...
