The lotus effect refers to self-cleaning properties that are a result of very high water repellence as exhibited by the leaves of the lotus flower (Nelumbo). Dirt particles are picked up by water droplets due to the micro- and nanoscopic architecture on the surface, which minimizes the droplet's adhesion to that surface.
There are even studies showing how lotus leaves hen used with L-carnitine (something that helps the body turn fat into energy) can treat weight problems. Looks like with these two things combined, fatty tissues weren’t even able to form!
Lotus leaves were specially good with preventing people from gaining weight and absorbing carbohydrates and fats which then becomes energy.
