Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of probiotics, prebiotics, symbiotics on lipid metabolism in hypercholesterolemia.Materials and
Methods:
A total of 30 Wistar rats were divided into 5 groups and fed the appropriate diets. Group 1 was given only normal rat chow. Group 2 were given cholesterol rich diet, group 3 were given cholesterol rich diet and probiotics, group 4 were given cholesterol rich diet and prebiotics, group 5 were given cholesterol rich diet and symbiotics for 21 days.Results: Mean values of AST in groups were 123 ± 1.1 U/l, 124 ± 1.18 U/ml, 135 ± 1 U/ml, 136 ± 0.89, 143 ± 0.78 U/ml. Mean values of ALT in groups were 72 ± 0.89 U/l, 73 ± 1, 74 ± 0.78 U/ml, 86 ± 1.1, 95 ± 0.63 U/ml. Mean values of total cholesterol in groups were 51.7 ± 0.91 mg/dl, 53.5 ± 1 mg/ dl, 45.8 ± 1 mg/dl, 45.0 ± 0.89 mg/dl, 44.4 ± 1 mg/dl. Mean values of LDL cholesterol in groups were 17.2 ± 0.77 mg/dl, 25.1 ± 0.63 mg/dl, 14.0 ± 0.63 mg/dl, 11.9 ± 0.89 mg/dl, 10.9 ± 0.89 mg/dl. Mean values of HDL cholesterol in groups were 17.8 ± 0.89 mg/dl, 11.4 ± 0.77 mg/dl, 15.9 ± 0.91 mg/dl, 17.0 ± 0.89 mg/dl, 17.5 ± 0.91 mg/dl. Mean values of triglycerids in groups were 83.6 ± 0.63 mg/dl, 85.0 ± 0.63 mg/dl, 79.6 ± 0.89 mg/dl, 80.6 ± 0.77 mg/dl, 80.1 ± 0.77 mg/dl.Conclusion: Probiotics and prebiotics improve lipid metabolism but alter AST and ALT values in rats, especially when they are used in combination.
