Ninety mild hypercholesterolemic males aged 40 -50 years, free from serious complications were selected and divided equally into three groups viz. E1, E2 and C. Subjects of group E1 were provided 150 ml of probiotic yoghurt containing only Lactobacillus acidophilus (MTCC-447) in the inoculum rate of 1.5% v/v and E2 with 150 ml Probiotic yoghurt containing Lactobacillus acidophilus (MTCC-447) and Streptococcus thermophilus (MTCC-1938) in the inoculum rate of 1.0% v/v for a period of 2 months…
