Abstract :

Hyperlipidemia is a very important serious problem that may alter the life of the individual. Our current work is aimed to investigate the possible protective effect of bifidobacteria and or Lactobacillus probiotic supplemented yoghurt on an experimental model of hyperlipidemia. Eighty male adult rats were divided into four groups (n=20 rats), group-1: Control negative, Group-2: Hyperlipidemia. Group-3: Bifidobacteria supplemented yoghurt. Group-4: Lactobacillus supplemented yoghurt. The results revealed that Bifidobacteria supplemented yoghurt achieved the best protection against induced hyperlipidemia more than yoghurt supplemented by Lactobacillus by decreasing the total lipids, cholesterol, LDL cholesterol as compared to hyperlipidemia group. Moreover, yoghurt supplemented by bifidobacteria decreased the expression of tumor necrosis factor and inducible nitrous oxide as compared to hyperlipidemia.
