The main objective is to study the effect of polyphenol supplementation on hepatic steatosis as measured by hepatic ultrasound, hepatic elastography and magnetic resonance hepatic spectroscopy in obese adolescents known for hepatic steatosis as diagnosed by liver biopsy


Obesity leads to hepatic steatosis. Early changes in vascular compliance due to obesity have been shown to be reversible. Many studies have shown a positive effect of polyphenols (natural product in apples and grapes) on the liver fat burden. Three visits will be planified.

Visit 1: Demographic data and liver and vascular imaging. Blood and stool tests.

Randomization to polyphenol versus placebo. Visit 2 at 60 days. Demographic data and liver and vascular imaging. Blood tests. Stop the intervention.

Visit 3 at 120 days. Demographic data and liver and vascular imaging. Blood and stool tests.

This study will determine the feasibility of a randomized controlled trial evaluating the effect of polyphenols on hepatic steatosis and the vascular subclinical radiologic changes related to obesity.
