High cholesterol: Aubergine and okra shown to help lower levels by up to ‘30 percent’


Total plasma cholesterol, VLDL, LDL, HDL and triglyceride levels were determined using commercial kits.

Research found that after four weeks, the A group rabbits had a significantly lower weight, plasma cholesterol, LDL, triglyceride and aortic cholesterol content than group H.

“In hypercholesterolemic rabbits, egg plant (aubergine) juice significantly reduced weight, plasma cholesterol levels, aortic cholesterol content and the MDA concentrations in native-oxidised LDL and in the arterial wall and increased the endothelium-dependent relaxations,” concluded the study.
