A(-)-epicatechin (EC) and (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC) mixture and a mixture of their gallates (ECG and EGCG, respectively) markedly lowered lymphatic cholesterol absorption in rats with a cannulated… Expand
Inhibition of cholesterol absorption and synthesis in rats by sesamin.
The effects of sesamin, a lignan from sesame oil, on various aspects of cholesterol metabolism were examined in rats maintained on various dietary regimens. When given at a dietary level of 0.5% for… Expand
Conjugated linoleic acid modulates tissue levels of chemical mediators and immunoglobulins in rats
The effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on the levels of chemical mediators in peritoneal exudate cells, spleen and lung, and the concentration of immunoglobulins in mesenteric lymph node and… Expand

The effects of sesamin, one of the most abundant lignans in sesame seed, on hepatic fatty acid oxidation were examined in rats that were fed experimental diets containing various amounts (0%, 0.1%,… Expand
Rice bran oil and cholesterol metabolism.
A range of human and animal studies have shown that rice bran oil (RBO) is an edible oil of preference for improving serum cholesterol levels and lipoprotein profiles with similarity to the more… Expand
Lymphatic recovery, tissue distribution, and metabolic effects of conjugated linoleic acid in rats.
Abstract Apparent lymphatic recovery of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in rats was considerably lower than for linoleic acid, approximately 55% versus 80% for 24 hr, although the distribution in… Expand

Punicic acid, one of the conjugated linolenic acid (CLN) isomers, exerts a body-fat reducing effect. Although punicic acid is found in pomegranate and Tricosanthes kirilowii seeds, the amount of this… Expand
A Comparison of Hypocholesterolemic Activity of β-Sitosterol and β-Sitostanol in Rats
The hypocholesterolemic activity of beta-sitosterol and its hydrogenated product, beta-sitostanol (dihydrositosterol or stigmastanol) has been compared in young male rats. When cholesterol was… Expand
