This study was designed to test the lipid-lowering and antioxidative activities of Pracparatum mungo extract (PME), in comparison to its components berberine and glycyrrhizin in cholesterol-fed hamsters. The PME and berberine significantly lowered the atherogenic index compared to glycyrrhizin and the control (P < 0.05). The hepatic HMG-CoA reductase activity was significantly lower in the PME and berberine groups than in the glycyrrhizin group (P < 0.05), while the hepatic ACAT activity was… CONTINUE READING
