We performed two studies to determine whether the lipid-lowering effect of viscous soluble fiber was modified by monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA). First, psyllium (1.4 g/MJ) was compared with wheat bran (control) in 1-mo metabolic diets by using a randomized crossover design (n = 32 hyperlipidemic subjects). The background diet contained approximately 6% of energy as MUFA (20% of total fat). The second study (n = 27 hyperlipidemic subjects) was similar to the first but the background diet… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Cholesterol-lowering effects of psyllium intake adjunctive to diet therapy in men and women with hypercholesterolemia: meta-analysis of 8 controlled trials.
TLDR
Psyllium is well tolerated and safe when used adjunctive to a low-fat diet in individuals with mild-to-moderate hypercholesterolemia, and significantly lowered serum total and LDL-cholesterol concentrations in subjects consuming aLow-Fat diet.
Psyllium-enriched cereals lower blood total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, but not HDL cholesterol, in hypercholesterolemic adults: results of a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Results indicate that consuming a psyllium-enriched cereal as part of a low fat diet improves the blood lipid profile of hypercholesterolemic adults over that which can be achieved with a lowFat diet alone.
High-protein diets in hyperlipidemia: effect of wheat gluten on serum lipids, uric acid, and renal function.
TLDR
High intakes of vegetable protein from gluten may have beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease risk by reducing oxidized LDL, serum triacylglycerol, and uric acid.
Effect of time of administration on cholesterol-lowering by psyllium: a randomized cross-over study in normocholesterolemic or slightly hypercholesterolemic subjects
TLDR
The timing of psyllium administration had no effect on cholesterol-lowering and, in fact, no cholesterol- Lowering was observed, suggesting that conclusions regarding the effectiveness of psylling for the prevention of heart disease in the population at large may be premature.
Time- and dose-dependent effect of psyllium on serum lipids in mild-to-moderate hypercholesterolemia: a meta-analysis of controlled clinical trials
TLDR
Psyllium could produce dose- and time-dependent serum cholesterol-lowering effect in mild and moderate hypercholesterolemic patients and would be useful as an adjunct to dietary therapy for the treatment of hypercholesterololemia.
Effect of soy-based breakfast cereal on blood lipids and oxidized low-density lipoprotein.
TLDR
High isoflavone intakes in soy breakfast cereals may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing oxidized LDL, while having no significant effect on the absolute concentration of LDL cholesterol.
Health aspects of partially defatted flaxseed, including effects on serum lipids, oxidative measures, and ex vivo androgen and progestin activity: a controlled crossover trial.
TLDR
It is indicated that partially defatted flaxseed is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol and no effects on lipoprotein ratios, ex vivo serum androgen or progestin activity, or protein carbonyl content were observed.

Effects of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid on LDL-cholesterol and bile acid synthesis in hypercholesterolemic men.
TLDR
The goal of the current study was to determine the mechanism of the hypocholesterolemic effect of psyllium using a randomized, double-blind, crossover design and it is concluded that Psyllium lowers LDL cholesterol primarily via stimulation of bile acid synthesis.
Method of administration influences the serum cholesterol-lowering effect of psyllium.
TLDR
It is concluded that psyllium must be mixed with foods to have the maximum effect on serum cholesterol.
Psyllium Reduces Blood Lipids in Men and Women With Hyperlipidemia
TLDR
It is concluded that 6.7 g of psyllium fiber daily, with a low-fat diet, reduces serum cholesterol levels in both men and women with hyperlipidemia.
Cholesterol-lowering effects of psyllium-enriched cereal as an adjunct to a prudent diet in the treatment of mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Adding psyllium-enriched cereal to a prudent low-fat diet may enhance dietary management of hypercholesterolemia, and serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein concentrations were significantly lower on Psyllium than on wheat-bran cereal.
Comparison of monounsaturated fatty acids and carbohydrates for lowering plasma cholesterol.

TLDR
A diet rich in monounsaturated fatty acids appears to be at least as effective in lowering plasma cholesterol as a diet low in fat and high in carbohydrate in short-term studies in which liquid diets are used and body weight is kept constant.
Comparison of effects of dietary saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in man.
TLDR
Results of this study show that oleic acid is as effective as linoleic acid in lowering LDL-C levels in normo-triglyceridemic patients, and oleoic acid seemingly reduces HDL-C Levels less frequently than does linolesic acid.
Effect on blood lipids of very high intakes of fiber in diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
TLDR
Very high intakes of foods rich in soluble fiber lower blood cholesterol levels even when the main dietary modifiers of blood lipids--namely, saturated fat and cholesterol--are greatly reduced.
Efficacy of Psyllium in Reducing Serum Cholesterol Levels in Hypercholesterolemic Patients on High- or Low-Fat Diets
TLDR
The objective was to rigorously investigate the efficacy of psyllium, 5.1 g twice a day, in reducing total serum cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemic patients on either the American Heart Association Step I diet or a typical high-fat American diet.
The effect of rolled oats on blood lipids and fecal steroid excretion in man.
TLDR
Rolled oats (125 g daily) were substituted for breakfast cereals and wheat flour in the metabolically controlled diets of 10 subjects for 3 wk, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations and plasma triglyceride levels were unchanged.
