  1. Represented the data (n = 5) as Mean ± SD, a shows significance at P < 0.001 (Dunnett’s-test), the normal group was compared with the untreated group and in turn, its comparison was made with extract treated group and standard, LDL Low density lipoprotein, TG Triglycerides, VLDL Very low density lipoprotein, HDL High density lipoprotein
