Abstract: In Unani System of Medicine, many drugs (single drugs as well compound formulations) are used for the purpose of reducing body weight and treating the obesity (Muhazzil). Indian gooseberry (amla) & ginger (Zanjabeel) are among these medicines. Since these drugs are useful in obesity, these can also be proved beneficial in lowering increased concentration of plasma lipids or treating hyperlipidaemia. Their efficacy has also been proved pharmacologically and these are documented as good hypolipidaemic as well as antioxidant natural agents. The combination of drugs was found to be significant in lowering the level of serum total cholesterol, serum tryglycerides, serum LDL-cholesterol, serum VLDL-cholesterol and in increasing the level of serum HDL-cholesterol in patients of primary hyperlipidaemia.
