Experimental studies of the hypolipidemic properties of pollen

Experiments on white rats with a model of “chronic” (two months) hyperlipidemia demonstrated the ability of pollen to produce significant delays in increases in blood cholesterol, triglycerides, and beta-lipoproteins and in liver cholesterol; pollen increased blood alpha-lipoprotein cholesterol. The effects of pollen approached those of Lipanor. The hypolipidemic action of pollen was linked with a reduction in cholesterol uptake and an increase in its metabolism into bile acids, along with reductions in peroxidation, membrane stabilization, and activation of adaptive anabolic reactions in tissues.
