|Abstract:||Garlic protein is a very good hypolipidemic agent. In the present study the water soluble protein fraction of garlic was investigated for its effect on hyperlipidemia induced by alcohol (3.76g/kg. body wt./day). The hypolipidemic action is mainly due to an increase in cholesterol degradation to bile acids and neutral sterols and mobilization of triacyl glycerols in treated rats. Garlic protein (500mg./kg body wt./day) showed significant hypolipidemic action comparable with a standard dose of gugu-lipid (50mg./kg. body wt./day).|
