Objectives:Evidences from randomized clinical trials and meta-analysis have claimed an association between the use of soluble dietary fiber from psyllium and a cholesterol-lowering effect. However, there is still uncertainty as to the dose–response relationship and its long-term lipid-lowering efficacy. This meta-analysis was primarily conducted to address the dose–response relationship between psyllium and serum cholesterol level and time-dependent effect of psyllium in mild-to-moderate… Expand

Effects of psyllium on LDL-cholesterol concentrations in Brazilian children and adolescents: a randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel clinical trial.
TLDR
In addition to causing a significant reduction in LDL-C concentrations, psyllium therapy was found to be both safe and acceptable for the treatment of hypercholesterolaemic children and adolescents. Expand
Effect of psyllium (Plantago ovata) fiber on LDL cholesterol and alternative lipid targets, non-HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
Psyllium fiber effectively improves conventional and alternative lipids markers, potentially delaying the process of atherosclerosis-associated CVD risk in those with or without hypercholesterolemia. Expand
Ameliorating Effects of Four-Week Fiber-Multivitamin Combination Treatment on Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol, Total Cholesterol, and Apolipoprotein B Profiles in Hypercholesterolemic Participants
TLDR
Results of the present study suggest that fiber-vitamin combination has potential to be used as an adjunct therapy for the management of hypercholesterolemia. Expand
Use of Psyllium Husk with new Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Considerations
Objective: To see effects of Psyllium husk on specific lipid parameters like total cholesterol, LDLcholesterol and triglycerides, which are important risk factors for development of CHD. Design: ItExpand
Joint position statement on "Nutraceuticals for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia" of the Italian Society of Diabetology (SID) and of the Italian Society for the Study of Arteriosclerosis (SISA).
TLDR
The cholesterol-lowering effect of fiber, phytosterols and red yeast rice is consistent and supported by a good level of evidence, and over berberine, there is sufficient evidence showing significant cholesterol- lowers effects, although the results come from studies carried out almost exclusively in Asian populations. Expand
Single Blind and Placebo Controlled Research Study of Effects of Ispaghula on Serum Lipids
Coronary heart disease is main cause of morbidity and mortality throughout world. When serum lipids rise from their normal limits, they tend to deposit at vascular walls, causing narrowing of bloodExpand
Nutraceuticals with lipid-lowering activity: do they have any effect beyond cholesterol reduction?
TLDR
No evidence is available that demonstrates a preventive effect of lipid-lowering nutraceuticals on hard cardiovascular outcomes, but for berberine and soluble fibers, the evidence of a positive multimetabolic effect is growing, contributing to a better control of both glucose and lipids values that consequently could be useful in the management of metabolic syndrome. Expand
Lipid-lowering nutraceuticals in clinical practice: position paper from an International Lipid Expert Panel
TLDR
The purpose of this position paper is to provide consensus-based recommendations for the optimal use of lipid-lowering nutraceuticals to manage dyslipidemia in patients who are still not on statin therapy, patients who have not achieved lipid goals, and patients with statin intolerance. Expand
Effect of Psyllium Supplementation on Insulin Resistance and Lipid Profile in Non-diabetic Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
The present study evaluated the effect of psyllium supplementation on insulin resistance and the lipid profile in non-diabetic women with PCOS and found it can reduce the levels of fasting blood sugar, insulin resistance, and lipid profile. Expand
An update on the safety of nutraceuticals and effects on lipid parameters
TLDR
A growing body of preclinical, epidemiological and clinical evidence has defined the tolerability and safety profile of the most commonly used lipid-lowering nutraceuticals and their pharmacological profile will be discussed. Expand

Cholesterol-lowering effects of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid. Adjunct therapy to a prudent diet for patients with mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Results indicate psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid is an effective and well-tolerated adjunct to diet in the management of mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia. Expand
Long-term cholesterol-lowering effects of psyllium as an adjunct to diet therapy in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Psyllium therapy is an effective adjunct to diet therapy and may provide an alternative to drug therapy for some patients in persons with primary hypercholesterolemia. Expand
The effects of psyllium on blood lipids in hypercholesterolaemic subjects
TLDR
Differences between the psyllium and control groups in total, LDL and HDL cholesterol levels were not significant, and changes in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels and body weights over the study period were notsignificant. Expand
Cholesterol-lowering effects of psyllium-enriched cereal as an adjunct to a prudent diet in the treatment of mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Adding psyllium-enriched cereal to a prudent low-fat diet may enhance dietary management of hypercholesterolemia, and serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein concentrations were significantly lower on Psyllium than on wheat-bran cereal. Expand
Hypercholesterolemia: A Look at Low‐Cost Treatment and Treatment Adherence
TLDR
Lipoprotein analysis at 2, 8, and 16 weeks indicated that a daily dose of 6 grams of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid did not significantly affect serum total cholesterol nor low-density lipoproteins in either men or women with hypercholesterolemia. Expand
Synergistic Effects of Psyllium in the Dietary Treatment of Hypercholesterolemia
TLDR
Psyllium fiber supplementation effectively enhances the cholesterol-lowering effect of the phase I diet and combined with dietary lead-in resulted in an overall 17.3% decrease in the TC and a 20.0%" decrease in LDL-C for men. Expand
Synergistic effects of psyllium in the dietary treatment of hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Psyllium fiber supplementation combined with dietary lead-in resulted in an overall 17.3% decrease in the TC and a 20.0%" decrease in LDL-C for men and 7.7% and 11.6%, respectively, for women. Expand

TLDR
Dietary psyllium soluble fiber should be considered as a safe and well-tolerated dietary supplement option to enhance LDL-C and apolipoprotein B lowering. Expand
Effect of psyllium in hypercholesterolemia at two monounsaturated fatty acid intakes.
TLDR
It is concluded that psyllium lowered LDL- and HDL-cholesterol concentrations similarly at both MUFA intakes, however, there may be some advantage in combining soluble fiber and MUFA to reduce the ratio of LDL to HDL cholesterol. Expand
