Drinking aqueous celery extract for 8 weeks caused a significant reduction in serum total cholesterol (TC) level in growing genetically hypercholesterolaemic (RICO) rats. In addition, administration of butanol fraction (Fbu) and aqueous fraction (Faq) of celery extract for 7 days by intraperitoneal (i.p.) infusion effectively decreased the serum TC and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels of adult RICO rats. The 8-week study showed that oral intake of celery extract could enhance… CONTINUE READING
