Abstract:
Green tea (Camelia sinensis) supplementation along with high cholesterol diet significantly (p<0.05) reduced the hyperlipidemia by reducing total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) and elevation of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and significantly increased all the cellular antioxidant enzymes and reduced the level of thiobrarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS). Majority of the histopathologically initiated atherosclerotic changes in the aorta and fatty change in the liver of high cholesterol diet group were not observed in the green tea supplemented group. Needs further studies at molecular level in the completely established atherosclerosis in laboratory animal models.
