Abstract


Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate the in-vivo anti-hyperlipidemic activity of Capsicum frutescens extracts.

Methods: The dried fruit powder were extracted with a three liquid phase extraction system. The acetone extract was isolated and the anti-hyperlipidemic activity was evaluated.

Results: The anti-hyperlipidemic study was carried out by inducing hyperlipidemia in rats by means of triton. The serum collected was analyzed for total cholesterol, triglyceride, low-density lipoprotein and high-density lipoprotein.

Conclusion: The result of the present study revealed that the acetone extract of the fruits of Capsicum frutescens possess anti-hyperlipidemic activity.
