Abstract

When abnormally high levels of lipids (fatty substances) are found in the blood, this condition is known as hyperlipidemia. Obesity is also related to this disorder. Hypolipidemic drugs are extensively used to prevent such disorders, but these drugs have other adverse effects. In India about 150 medicinal plants have been used as herbal drugs against these disorders. This review focused on some medicinal plants which have lipid lowering activities.
