Hyperlipidemia is a chronic condition caused by abnormally high lipid accumulation in the bloodstream, including high blood cholesterol and fat.
Hyperlipidemia is a condition in the cluster of metabolic syndrome associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Cholesterol produced by the liver or dietary fat intake at a moderate amount plays an essential role to produce steroid hormone and vitamin D, build strong cell membranes and aid the digestive system in absorbing nutrients and fluids.
According to the statistics provided by the CDC, in 2015–2016, more than 12% of adults age 20 and older had total cholesterol higher than 240 mg/dL, and more than 18% had high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good”) cholesterol levels less than 40 mg/dL in the US.
However, overexpression of cholesterol in the blood has been found to induce the forming arterial plaques, leading to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
There are 2 types of blood cholesterol
* The high-density lipoprotein is also known as "good cholesterol" that return cholesterol to the liver for future use
* The low-density lipoprotein is also known as "bad" cholesterol processed a function aforementioned health benefits in moderate amount.
The healthy ratio of total blood cholesterol ("bad"/ "good") is any numbers that are less than 4.
Patients with hyperlipidemia are assymptomatic. However, over time hyperlipidemia can cause plaque accumulated on the arterial wall, leading to the narrowing arteries and hardening arterial walls in orchestrating the onset of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
Hyperlipidemia is treatable. By a change of diet and daily moderate exercise, you may control the condition without medication.
Cabbage is a species of Brassica oleracea belong to the family Brassicaceae (or Cruciferae), native to the Mediterranean region along the seacoast. It has a short stem of which is crowded a mass of leaves, usually green but in some varieties, it may be red or purplish.
With an aim to find a potent compound for the treatment of high blood cholesterol, researchers examined the hypolipidemic effects of the methanol extract of Brassica oleracea var. capitata (MEB, cabbage) in an animal model.
The study included 28 healthy white rabbits of either sex induced hyperlipidemia equally divided into four groups with treated and standard groups that were administered MEB (500 mg·kg(-1)) and glibenclamide (10 mg·kg(-1)), respectively for 15 and 30 days.
Additionally, the animals of the normal and diabetic controls also received normal saline 1 mL/day equivalent to the volume of doses given to the test and standard animals.
According to the tested assays
* MEB also decreased in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein by 94.3 and 96.5 mg·dL(-1), respectively, and increased the levels of high-density lipoprotein (HLD) by 26.7 mg·dL(-1) compared to diabetic control.
* After taking other factors into account, researchers suggested that all of the changes in lipid profile were statistically significant.comapred to control.
These results strongly suggested that the methanol extract from collard greens processes a hypolipidemic effect in a diabetes animal model.
Dr. Assad T, the lead scientist said, "These results suggest the potential of MEB as a...hypolipidemic agent".
Taken altogether, collard green may be considered supplements for the prevention and treatment of hyperlipidemia, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
