Coconut Oil and Cholesterol as Challenge Agents to Induce Hyperlipidemia and Atherosclerosis in Hamster Animal Model
The factors that may influence the ability of CNO and cholesterol combination to induce hyperlipidemia such as the period of dietary intervention, hamster strains and the dietary amount were evaluated and summarized.
Avaliação de parâmetros bioquímicos nutricionais e do estresse oxidativo em ratos tratados com extrato oleoso de bixina (p.a. lipo 8
The annato seeds extract used as a food colour has also been described by the scientific community by its hypocholesterolemic effect. Thus this work aimed at assessing in rats the effect of the
Long-term effect of fibre supplement and reduced energy intake on body weight and blood lipids in overweight subjects.
The results suggest that a dietary fibre supplement in combination with a hypocaloric diet is of value as an adjunct in the management of overweight.
Dietary fibers and their effects on health
There are many observational data that documented the association of lower risk of cardiovascular abnormalities and dietary fiber consumption. Because humans cannot digest fibers due to lack of
Dietary Fiber, Atherosclerosis, and Cardiovascular Disease
The current knowledge regarding dietary fiber, sources of food containing fiber, atherosclerosis, and heart disease risk reduction is summarized.


Comparison of hypocholesterolemic activities of the bile acid sequestrants cholestyramine and colestipol hydrochloride in cholesterol fed SEA quail.
Cholestyramine is significantly more potent for reducing serum cholesterol in hypercholesterolemic male SEA quail than is colestipol hydrochloride.
Additive hypocholesterolemic effect of psyllium and cholestyramine in the hamster: influence on fecal sterol and bile acid profiles.
It is concluded that, while both agents lower cholesterol by a mechanism of increased bile acid excretion, psyllium does not bind bile acids in vivo and lend further support for the concomitant use of these agents for cholesterol-lowering.
Prune fiber or pectin compared with cellulose lowers plasma and liver lipids in rats with diet-induced hyperlipidemia.
Results indicate that fiber extracted from prunes lowers plasma and liver cholesterol in hyperlipidemic rats, although a dose-dependent response was not detected.
The hypocholesterolemic effect of dietary soybean protein vs. casein in hamsters fed cholesterol-free or cholesterol-enriched semipurified diets.
The results indicate that the hamster may be a useful model to examine the effect of different types of protein and the interaction with dietary cholesterol on various plasma lipids and lipoproteins.
