Hypocholesterolemia, Lipid Parameters, Moringa Oleifera


Objective: To observe the effects of moringa oleifera on lipid parameters of rabbits. Study Design: Experimental Trial. Setting: was carried out on healthy animal models using adult male rabbits in indoor Patient Ward of Pakistan Veterinary Clinic and Pet Centre Nawabshah. Period: January 2023 to June 2023. Methods: Thirty adult male rabbits age ranging from 16 to 24 months having weight between 2 to 3 kg were selected and randomly divided in to three groups comprising 10 rabbits in each group. Data was analyzed by using SPSS version 25.0. Results: The mean Cholesterol, LDL, HDL and Triglycerides level of the rabbits were compared between Group A (Control), Group B (250 mg/Kg MO) and Group C (500 mg/Kg MO) and data was collected on four scheduled days (Day 0, 15, 30 and 45). Statistical significant test repeated measure ANOVA was applied and there was statistically significant difference among means Cholesterol level in each time period in both Group B and C with P-value 0.002 on groups, mean LDL level with P-value 0.014 and 0.000 on both groups and mean HDL level with P-value 0.000 and 0.015on both groups. There were no statistically significant differences between means in Serum Triglyceride level in both groups with P-value 0.063 and 0.149. Conclusion: It was concluded in our study that Moringa Olifera has potential role in lowering serum Cholesterol, LDL and HDL level with regular use. But we cannot find any significant difference in lowering triglyceride level.
