Abstract

The effect of Thuja biotae water extract on lipid composition, blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride and lipid hydroperoxide was studied in rabbits. In the animalfed Thuja biotae water extract $1m{\ell}/kg\;or\;2m{\ell}/kg$, blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride and lipid hydroperoxide was lower values than the control group. The lipid composition of plasma was not great differencies, but palmitic acid $C_{16:0}$ was very elevated with higher than 50%, n-3/n-6 ratio was higher than 0.3 and p/s ratio was higher than 4.0. It was concluded that Thuja biotae water extract may be one of the blood glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride level lowering factor.
