A novel use of chitosan as a hypocholesterolemic agent in rats.
A series of experiments with male rats clearly demonstrated the hypocholesterolemic activity of dietary chitosan. On feeding a high cholesterol diet for 20 days, addition of 2 to 5% chitosan resultedExpand

Tea catechins decrease micellar solubility and intestinal absorption of cholesterol in rats.
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 cannulatedExpand

Sesamin, a sesame lignan, is a potent inducer of hepatic fatty acid oxidation in the rat.
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

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 inExpand

Genetically modified rapeseed oil containing cis-9,trans-11,cis-13-octadecatrienoic acid affects body fat mass and lipid metabolism in mice.
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 thisExpand

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 wasExpand
