Thunder God Vine entered the spotlight recently for a successful study of weight loss in mice.

From the senior author Umut Ozcan:

The message from this study is that there is still hope for making leptin work, and there is still hope for treating obesity. If Celastrol works in humans as it does in mice, it could be a powerful way to treat obesity and improve the health of many patients suffering from obesity and associated complications, such as heart disease, fatty liver, and type 2 diabetes.

Weightloss is a meaningful pursuit, it’s far too soon to suggest this herb is right for this purpose in humans.
