Previous reports demonstrated that hypocholesterolemic activity of apple was associated with its pectin and fiber. This report was to investigate the effect of apple polyphenols (AP) on blood cholesterol level and gene expression of cholesterol-regulating enzymes in Golden Syrian hamsters maintained on a 0.1% cholesterol diet. It was found that dietary supplementation of 0.3 or 0.6% of AP did not affect plasma total cholesterol (TC), but it increased HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) and decreased non… CONTINUE READING
