Objective: This study aimed to investigate whether an extract of green tea is able to decrease low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-c) and increase high density lipoprotein (HDL)-c in rats exposed to depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA). Methods: Twenty five female Wistar rats were divided into five groups (n = 5 each): (1) untreated negative control; (2) positive control which received DMPA only; (3) DMPA plus green tea extract at the dose of 10.8 mg/kg/day; (4) DMPA plus green tea…

LIPID AND CHOLESTEROL LOWERING EFFECT OF GREEN VS BLACK TEA – HOW MUCH, HOW FREQUENT: A LITERATURE REVIEW

Green tea, unfermented leaves are rich in catechins. Catechins are known to lower the lipid level by un-regulating lipid-metabolizing enzyme via NF-KB and thereby stimulating fat oxidation. Black tea

Green tea was able to significantly reduced cholesterol levels in DMPA users, and this research needs to be refined to improve the accuracy of the cholesterol examination results using the POCT (Point of Care Testing) method or the spectrophotometer method.

Improving Total-Cholesterol/HDL-Cholesterol Ratio Results in an Endothelial Dysfunction Recovery in Peripheral Artery Disease Patients

Improvement of nitrite levels are associated with decreased total cholesterol/HDL ratio values in PAD patients treated with atorvastatin, and a strong correlation was found between the gradient of nitrites levels and the differential of total-cholesterol/ HDL-ch cholesterol ratio in atorVastatin group.
