Yoga therapy may have a profound effect in improved lipid metabolism, thus reducing the risk of early onset of dyslipidemia, some studies suggested.
Lipid metabolism is a natural process of our body in break down or storage of fats for energy after consumed food.
Yoga, the ancient technique for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been best known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.
In a self-as-control study of 36 male healthy volunteers between the age group of 30-58 years assigned to yoga therapy with a validated questionnaire and divided into Vata-Pitta (n = 16) and Pitta-Kapha (n = 20) groups, researchers indicated that
1. Group with Vata-Pitta (V-P) displayed a significant decrease in the levels of TC, LDL (p < 0.001) and significant increase in HDL (p < 0.01) in compared to While, Pitta-Kapha (P-K) group with significant decrease in TC (p < 0.001), TG (p < 0.01), LDL (p < 0.001) and VLDL (p < 0.05) levels.
2. In compared to the P-K group, the levels of baseline levels of TC, TG and VLDL were lower in V-P group
The result showed that both yoga intervention have had a positive effect on promoted lipid metabolism but lesser in the Pitta-Kapha group.
Dr. Doddoli S, the led author said, "yoga practices can effectively regulate lipid metabolism and total body energy expenditure with reference to specific constitutional type".
Additionally, in a prospective, randomized, interventional controlled trial recruited 90 adolescents aged between 15 and 18 years met the Rotterdam criteria for PCOS assigned to yoga group practiced Surya namaskar, asanas, pranayama, and meditation 1 hour per day each day for 12 weeks and group practiced conventional physical exercises acted as control, after taking into account of other confounders, researchers suggested
1. Both groups reported a significant effect on fasting insulin, fasting blood glucose, but significantly different in homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance.
2. Yoga group expressed a positive effect in all aspects of lipid metabolism
Further analysis, researchers insisted, "(Yoga is) more effective than conventional physical exercises in improving glucose, lipid, and insulin values, including insulin resistance values, in adolescent girls with PCOS independent of anthropometric changes".
More importantly, in the investigation of yoga therapy in reduced risk lipid peroxidation, scientists postulated that yoga practice decreased oxidative stress through the expression of lower concentration of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, involving autoxidative alterations of fats and oils.
Taking all together, yoga not only have a profound effect in reduce levels of bad cholesterol but also improved lipid metabolism in reduced overexpression of lipid peroxidation.
