Effects of Allium cepa on Lipid Profile and Cardiac Enzyme Marker in Wistar Rats Fed with High-Fat Diet

Allium cepa has been reported to contain some phytochemicals that have possible effects on weight reduction and circulating lipids. This experiment is aimed at observing the effect of A. cepa on the lipid profile and cardiac enzyme marker of albino Wistar rats fed with high-fat diet. Exactly 48 Wistar rats were used in this experiment, and were separated into four different groups as A, B, C and D. Each group had 12rats. The groups were given feed with different compositions as: normal rat feed; A. cepa supplemented rat feed; high-fat diet and A.
