Evaluation of Antihyperlipidemic Potential of Amritarishta Prepared by Traditional and Modern Methods in Hyperlipidemic Rats
Head of Department of Pharmacognosy, Dr. K. N. Modi Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Modinagar, Uttar Pradesh, India.
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the lipid peroxidation activity and related antihyperlipidemic activity of Amritarishta-T and Amritarishta-M prepared by traditional and modern methods and its marketed formulation in high fat diet induced hyperlipidemic rats. The antioxidant activity of Amritarishta-T and Amritarishta-M was increased in concentration dependent manner. Amritarishta-T and Amritarishta-M inhibited the ferrous sulphate induced lipid peroxidation in a dose dependent manner and showed inhibitory concentration (IC50) value 236.84 and 243.66 µg/ml respectively. Oral administration of Amritarishta-T and Amritarishta-M for nine weeks at the dose of 2 ml/kg significantly reduced serum cholesterol, serum LDL and serum triglycerides while showed significant rise in serum HDL as compared to high fat diet fed control group. Marketed Amritarishta also showed significant decrease in serum cholesterol, serum LDL, serum triglycerides and showed significant rise in serum HDL. Atorvastatin (1.2 mg/kg, p.o.) was used as standard antihyperlipidemic drug. Both types of Amritarishta as Amritarishta-T and Amritarishta-M showed significant reduction in atherogenic index as compared to high fat diet fed control group which strongly supports antiatherosclerotic property of Amritarishta.
