Materials and Methods : In this experimental study, 35 male Balb/c mice were randomly divided in five groups such control, sham, and experimental groups which received Biebersteina multifida DC. root extract with the doses of 4, 5 and 10 mg/kg three last groups were daily fed orally, for thirty days. HDL and LDL blood serum levels were measured, in the last day and compared with control and sham groups.
Results : The results after 30 days gavage of 4, 5 and 10 mg/kg of Biebersteinia Multifida DC. root extract showed that the root extract decrease of LDL level significantly. The doses of 4, 5 mg/kg of the root extract were the effective dose in decreasing the serum HDL level. However, 10 mg/kg dose of root extract has no significant effect on HDL level in comparison with control and sham groups. 10 mg/kg of root extract had the maximum effect on reducing LDL level.
Conclusion : According to this study, it is suggested that the root extract of Biebersteinia multifida DC. can be efficient to reduce the level of HDL and LDL in blood serum.
