Hyperlipidemia is abnormally high levels of cholesterol in the bloodstream. The syndrome is a member of the cluster conditions of metabolic syndrome, a leading cause of cardiovascular disease.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.
The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine for the trerament dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.
Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of hyperlipidemia investigated the effect of ginger extracts on alcohol-induced hyperlipidemia and associated myocardial damage.
The study included 24 Wistar male albino rats (250 ± 20 g) divided into four groups including, normal control (NC) (0.9% NaCl), ginger treated (Gt) (200 mg/Kg b.w.), alcohol-treated (At) (20% of 6g/kg b.w. alcohol), and alcohol along with Ginger treatment (At+Gt).
Before ginger administration, alcohol-induced myocardial damage rats showed an increased lipid profile except for high-density lipoprotein compared with control.
