|Title:||Black Gram (Vigna mungo) - A hypolipidemic pulse|
|Abstract:||Black gram is a pulse commonly used in Indian cuisine. Systematic studieson the effect of lipid lowering action by common pulses revealed that black gram possesses significant hypolipidemic action. Detailed experimental studies in animals have shown that a polysaccharide and a protein fraction contribute to the hypolipidemic action. Glycosaminoglycan metabolism is altered by inclusion of these fractions in the diet. Neutral detergent fiber isolated from black gram possesses, significant hypolipidemic, hypoglycemic, and anticolon-cancer activity.|
