The researchers said that adding the oil, known as sterculic oil, to the diet can help increase insulin sensitivity by reducing the levels of certain micro-organisms in the body.

The researchers added that sterculic oil can also be used to control weight gain by improving the body's glucose tolerance though it was not found to produce any substantial weight loss in laboratory mice.
