INTRODUCTION: Augusti and Mathew (1) first reported that an aqueous extract of garlic has hypolipidemic
action on normal rats.
It is composed of healthy flavonoids from the bergamot fruit whose natural hypolipidemic
, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic effects are well known.
Various plant parts show antidiabetic, hypolipidemic
, antibacterial, antioxidant, antiulcerogenic, hepatoprotective, gastroprotective, and chemopreventive properties.
Antihyperglycemic and hypolipidemic
activity of methanol extract of leaves has been shown (Girija et al.
It has antiviral, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, immunostimulant, adaptogenic, hepatoprotective, pancreas-protective and hypolipidemic
Bioactive components with hypolipidemic
and free radical-scavenging activities have received much attention as potential, nontoxic alternative.
Modern research has demonstrated a multiplicity of actions attributable to these compounds in tienchi ginseng including hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic
, immunostimulatory, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant, hemostatic, antithrombotic, antiatherosclerotic, fibrinolytic, antiarrhythmic, hypotensive, estrogen like and even sperm motility enhancing effects.
Garlic has been proved to be hypolipidemic
(Yaoling et al.
All patients were randomized to following groups: the 1st group (n=44) received lovastatin (20-60 mg/day), hypolipidemic
diet and physical training; the 2nd group (n=39)--hypolipidemic
diet and physical training.
It is traditionally used for its various properties and hence in the present study, chloroform extract of Mimosa pudica leaves has been screened for its hypolipidemic
The protective effects of resveratrol have been attributed to a number of mechanisms such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, and anti-thrombotic activities, as well as its hypolipidemic
Additionally, administration of trans-resveratrol was demonstrated to result in a reduction in both LDL and triglycerides, as well as a 7% increase in HDL, which is in agreement with other studies demonstrating the hypolipidemic
properties of this stilbene.
