The increased lipid profile is the greatest risk factor for atherosclerosis and other associated complications.Currently, available allopathy medicine has related to the number of side effects. Medicinal plants for hyperlipidemia has no side effects and is relatively inexpensive and locally available. The antihyperlipidemic activity of ethanolic extract of leaves of Alternanthera ficoidea Linn against Triton wr-1339 induced hyperlipidemia in rats. Alternanthera ficoidea Linn administered at a dose of 200mg/kg (p.o) to the triton induced hyperlipidemic rats. Alternanthera ficoidea Linn shows a significant decrease lipid profile levels like serum cholesterol, phospholipids, triglyceride, LDL, VLDL and the significant increase in the level of serum HDL level.
