Abstract: The three fractions diethyl ether, ethyl acetate and ethanol. of <i style="">T. arjuna</i> exerted hypolipidemic and antioxidative effects at two different doses levels of 175 and 350 mg/kg body weight in Poloxamer (PX)-407 induced hyperlipidemic albino Wistar rats. The hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects of <i>T. arjuna </i>fractions were noticed as EtOH>diethyl ether>ethyl acetate. The results suggest that ethanolic fraction of <i style="">T. arjuna</i> possesses the potent properties of being antioxidant and hypolipidemic than other fractions. In turn, it has therapeutic potential for the prevention of coronary arterial disease.
