The effect of fish oil and coconut oil on plasma lipoproteins and lipoprotein-catabolizing enzymes [lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic endothelial lipase (HL)] was studied in rats. Male rats were fed for 4 wk purified diets containing equienergetic, amounts of either coconut oil (group A), coconut oil:fish oil, 50:50 (group B) or fish oil (group C). Whole plasma triacylglycerol, cholesterol and phospholipid concentrations were appreciably lower in group C than in group A, mainly due to a fall… CONTINUE READING
