Effects of dietary coconut oil, butter and safflower oil on plasma lipids, lipoproteins and lathosterol levels

The data suggest that cholesterol synthesis is lower during diets rich in coconut fat and safflower oil compared with diet rich in butter and might be associated with lower production rates of apoB-containing lipoproteins.

Alterations in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism induced by a diet rich in coconut oil and cholesterol in a rat model.

New evidence is provided that a diet-induced hypercholesterolemia in rats is associated with several adaptative changes in carbohydrate metabolism and may be of importance not only considering the role of western diets on cholesterogenesis, but also in other metabolic disturbances involving lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.

Palm oil versus hydrogenated soybean oil: effects on serum lipids and plasma haemostatic variables.

It is concluded that from a nutritional point of view, palmitic acid from palm oil may be a reasonable alternative to trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated soybean oil in margarine if the aim is to avoid trans fatty acid.

A diet rich in walnuts favourably influences plasma fatty acid profile in moderately hyperlipidaemic subjects

Despite an unintended increase in the total fat intake on the walnut diet, fatty acid profile of the major lipid fractions showed changes which might be expected to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

Replacement of partially hydrogenated soybean oil by palm oil in margarine without unfavorable effects on serum lipoproteins

It is concluded that nutritionally, palmitic acid from palm oil may be a reasonable alternative to trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated soybean oil in margarine if the aim is to avoid trans fatty acid replacement.

Hypolipidemic Effect of Black Pepper (Piper nigrum Linn.) in Rats Fed High Fat Diet

Effect of administering black pepper (Piper nigrum Linn.), one of the commonly consumed spices and its active principle piperine, to high fat fed rats was studied for a period of 10 weeks. Black

Coconut oil consumption and cardiovascular risk factors in humans.

The weight of the evidence from intervention studies to date suggests that replacing coconut oil with cis unsaturated fats would alter blood lipid profiles in a manner consistent with a reduction in risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Randomised trial of coconut oil, olive oil or butter on blood lipids and other cardiovascular risk factors in healthy men and women

Two different dietary fats (butter and coconut oil) which are predominantly saturated fats, appear to have different effects on blood lipids compared with olive oil, a predominantly monounsaturated fat with coconut oil more comparable to olive oil with respect to LDL-C.



Plasma lipid and lipoprotein response of humans to beef fat, coconut oil and safflower oil.

Plasma TC, HDL-C, and LDL-C responses to BF were significantly lower and TG higher than to CO, and the customary consideration of BF as "saturated" and grouping it with CO appears unwarranted.

Comparison of effects of lauric acid and palmitic acid on plasma lipids and lipoproteins.

Lauric acid raises total and LDL cholesterol concentrations compared with oleic acid, but is not as potent for increasing cholesterol concentrations as is palmitic acid.

Effects of Monounsaturated Fatty Acids Versus Complex Carbohydrates on Serum Lipoprotein Subfractions and Apolipoproteins in Healthy Men and Women

The effects of an olive oil-rich and a high-carbohydrate diet on the distribution of cholesterol over the various lipoproteins and on apolipoproteins AI and B levels are reported.

Influence of polyunsaturated and saturated fats on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in man.

The effects of varying polyunsaturated/saturated (P/S) fat ratios on the plasma levels of lipids, lipoproteins, and apolipoprotein A-I were assessed in six normal healthy subjects (three males, three

Effect of dietary stearic acid on plasma cholesterol and lipoprotein levels.

It is concluded that stearic acid appears to be as effective as oleic acid in lowering plasma cholesterol levels when either replaces palmitic Acid in the diet.

Comparison of effects of dietary saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in man.

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.

Effects of dietary polyunsaturated and saturated fat on the properties of high density lipoproteins and the metabolism of apolipoprotein A-I.

The results show that polyunsaturated fat alters the chemical composition, thermotropic properties, and subfraction distribution of HDL without changing the fractional rate of catabolism of their major protein, apoA-I.

Dietary palmitic acid results in lower serum cholesterol than does a lauric-myristic acid combination in normolipemic humans.

It is indicated that a dietary 12:0 + 14:0 combination produces a higher serum cholesterol concentration than does 16:0 in healthy normocholesterolemic young men fed a low-cholesterol diet.

Effects of fats and fatty acids on blood lipids in humans: an overview.

Replacement of hard fats rich in lauric, myristic, or palmitic acids or trans fatty acids by unsaturated oils will lower LDL, but replacement by carbohydrates will in addition decrease HDL and increase triglycerides.
