Hypocholesterolemic effect of rice protein is due to regulating hepatic cholesterol metabolism in adult rats.

Aging is one of major risk factors for developing hypercholesterolemia. To elucidate the cholesterol-lowering mechanism exerted by rice protein (RP), the effects on hepatic cholesterol outputs and cholesterol metabolism related enzymes were investigated in adult rats, which were fed by casein (CAS) and RP without cholesterol in diets. After 2 weeks of… CONTINUE READING
