|Abstract:||Three varieties of linseed, viz. ‘Janki’, ‘Surbhi’ and ‘Nagarkot’ were fed to male albino rats for 40 days at two different levels (15 and 25%), so as to see their effect on the concentration of Total cholesterol (TC), Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and Triglyceride (TG). A significant (P<0.05) decrease was observed in TC, LDL-C and TG levels, whereas a significant (P<0.05) increase was seen in HDL-C level as compared to control groups. Maximum rise in the HDL-C level was observed in rats fed on a diet containing 25% of linseed. It is suggested that linseed might have beneficial effect in decreasing the elevated lipid levels in human beings also.|
