Blood fat values can be lowered with Ayurvedic preparations

Pathologically elevated blood lipid levels, hyperlipidemia, often lead to vascular calcification and as a result to coronary heart disease, the so-called ischaemic heart disease. Conventional medical treatments are often accompanied by side effects. The aim of this study is to examine the herbal preparation Arogyavardhini vati, which is already successfully used in Ayurvedic practice against liver disorders, for its effectiveness against hyperlipidemia.


The effects of Arogyavardhini vati and in the comparative group fenofibrate, a cholesterol-lowering drug, were tested on two groups of laboratory rats.


The test results of the rats treated with the ayurvedic preparation showed significant reductions in chosterol, triglycerides, LDL values and C-reactive proteins (CRP) and a significant increase in HDL cholesterol. Furthermore, a reduction of oxidative stress levels was found in both the Ayurvedic preparation and fenofibrate. The study shows the potential of the proven Ayurvedic preparation Arogyavardhini vati for use in elevated blood lipid levels.
