  • Product Description
 

The study is clinical cum supplementation study. The study was conducted in the urban area of Puducherry. Purposive sampling method using snow ball technique was adapted to select 60 hyperlipidemic subjects from 93 samples between the age 40 and 60 years residing in the urban limits of Puducherry.Among the selected subjects, 30 subjects served as experimental group and the other 30 subjects formed the control group.The experimental groups were supplemented with 20g of wheat germ every day for a period of 90 days along with the regular diet.The findings in the study indicate that 20g per day of wheat germ for 90 days had a significant effect in lowering fasting blood sugar levels and post prandial blood sugar levels of the diabetic- hyperlipidemic subjects and total cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, LDL cholesterol levels, VLDL cholesterol levels, total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio, LDL cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio and fat percentage of the hyperlipidemic subjects.The study therefore confirms that the incorporation of wheat germ in the daily diet of the hyperlipidemic subjects could be beneficial.
