Different sources of saponins are known to have hypocholesterolemic activity with varying degrees of efficacy. We hypothesize that karaya root saponin would efficiently reduce cholesterol. The aim of this study is to examine the comparative hypocholesterolemic effect of karaya root saponin in rats fed a high-cholesterol diet. Sixty male Wister-Imamichi rats were divided into 5 groups of 12 rats each constituting of the following: control group, soybean saponin-supplemented group, karaya root… 
Effect of dietary karaya saponin on serum and egg yolk cholesterol in laying hens
TLDR
Karaya saponin is a potential agent for reducing yolk cholesterol concentration together with an overall increase of production performance and improvement in egg quality.
Dietary Karaya Saponin and Rhodobacter capsulatus Exert Hypocholesterolemic Effects by Suppression of Hepatic Cholesterol Synthesis and Promotion of Bile Acid Synthesis in Laying Hens
TLDR
The findings suggest that the hypocholesterolemic effects of karaya saponin and R. capsulatus are caused by the suppression of the cholesterol synthesis and the promotion of cholesterol catabolism in the liver.
STUDY OF THE ANTIHYPERLIPIDEMIC AND ANTIOXIDATIVE ACTIVITY OF SOLANUM TORVUMSW. IN RABBITS RECEIVING HIGH FAT DIET
The aim of the study was to investigate the possible antihyperlipidemic and antioxidative effects of the ethanolic extract of Solanum torvum SW. leaves in diet induced hyperlipidemia in rabbits.
Hypocholesterolemic effect of karaya saponin in Japanese laying quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica).
TLDR
The dietary supplementation of 75 mg/kg karaya saponin may be a feasible means of producing quail eggs with lower cholesterol and higher PUFA content for health conscious consumers.
Ipomea batatas Leaf Powder from Cameroon: Antioxidant Activity and Antihyperlipidemic Effect in Rats Fed with a High-Fat Diet
TLDR
The results suggest the use of I. batatas leaves as a phytomedicine in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and their antihyperlipidemic effect on rats receiving a high-fat diet is suggested.
Hypolipidemic and antioxidant properties of Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss:Fr) Karst used as a dietary supplement
In this study, the hypolipidemic and antioxidant properties of Ganoderma lucidum CG 144, a medicinal mushroom cultivated on wet wheat grains by solid-state fermentation, were investigated followed
Identification of Active Compounds of Kepok Banana Peel and the Effect on Testosterone Concentration in Male Rats with High-Fat Diet
Our body needs an adequate supply of antioxidants to maintain physiological functions. Antioxidant compounds are found in natural plants, including inside of kepok bananas peel. This research was
The hydrolysis of saponin-rich extracts from fenugreek and quinoa improves their pancreatic lipase inhibitory activity and hypocholesterolemic effect.
TLDR
The hydrolysis process of saponin-rich extracts enhances the bioactivity and allows developing multibioactive products against pancreatic lipase and cholesterol absorption simultaneously.
Lowering of cholesterol bioaccessibility and serum concentrations by saponins: in vitro and in vivo studies.
TLDR
Both Sapindin and Quillaja Dry extracts were found to prevent dietary hypercholesterolemia in mice fed on a cholesterol-rich diet and were reported for the first time in the current study.
Saponins of sea cucumber attenuate atherosclerosis in ApoE−/− mice via lipid-lowering and anti-inflammatory properties
TLDR
Results showed that SSC treatment reduced serum lipid levels in a dose-dependent manner in rats fed with cholesterol-rich diet, and indicated that S SC might serve as a novel functional ingredient with anti-atherosclerotic activity.

Hypocholesterolemic and anti-obesity effects of saponins from Platycodon grandiflorum in hamsters fed atherogenic diets.
TLDR
It is suggested that platycodin-enriched diets can lower circulating and whole body cholesterol contents, and thus reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases through mechanisms independent from cholesterol absorption or synthesis.
Antioxidative and Hypolipidemic Effects of Diosgenin, a Steroidal Saponin of Yam (Dioscorea spp.), on High-Cholesterol Fed Rats
TLDR
It is suggested that diosgenin could be a very useful compound to control hypercholesterolemia by both improving the lipid profile and modulating oxidative stress.
A mechanism for the hypocholesterolaemic activity of saponins.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of different saponins on absorption of the bile salt sodium cholate from perfused loops of small intestine, in vivo, in the rat finds that control of plasma cholesterol and nutrient absorption through dietary saponin could provide substantial health and nutritional benefits in humans.
PANAX NOTOGINSENG SAPONINS ATTENUATE ATHEROSCLEROSIS IN RATS BY REGULATING THE BLOOD LIPID PROFILE AND AN ANTI‐INFLAMMATORY ACTION
TLDR
It appears that PNS exerts its therapeutic effects on atherosclerosis through an anti‐inflammatory action and regulation of the blood lipid profile and that an NF‐κB signalling pathway is involved.

Comparative study on hypocholesterolemic effect of Rhodopseudomonas palustris and Rhodobacter capsulatus on rats fed a high cholesterol diet
TLDR
The results may suggest that both R. palustris and R. Capsulatus can contribute significant health benefits and seems to be feasible to investigate in future research.
Effects of soy components on blood and liver lipids in rats fed high-cholesterol diets.
TLDR
Consumption of soy provided benefits to control lipid levels under high-cholesterol dieting conditions in this rat model of hypercholesterolemia and the major component that reduced hepatic TC was not saponin, but possibly isoflavone.
Cholesterol-lowering effect of platycodin D in hypercholesterolemic ICR mice.
TLDR
Both in vivo and in vitro results demonstrate a potential value of platycodin D as a novel cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic candidate.
The effects of Yucca schidigera and Quillaja saponaria on DNA damage, protein oxidation, lipid peroxidation, and some biochemical parameters in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
TLDR
The results suggested that Q. saponaria and Y. schidigera powders could help in the treatment of the disease owing to their hypoglycemic, hypocholesterolemic, and antioxidant effects.
Soyasaponins Lowered Plasma Cholesterol and Increased Fecal Bile Acids in Female Golden Syrian Hamsters
TLDR
Compared with casein, group B soyasaponins lowered plasma total cholesterol levels and non-HDL cholesterol levels by a mechanism involving greater excretion of fecal bile acids and neutral sterols, suggesting that gut microbial variation in soy asaponin metabolism may influence the health effects of group B Soyasaponin.
