Camelina Oil -

Lipid-lowering evaluation of cold-pressed Camelina sativa oil – Q. Deng, F. Huang, Q. Huang, J. Xu, and C. Liu – Journal of Food, Agriculture and Environment 2012

Summary: The objective of the present study was to investigate the impact of increasing doses of cold-pressed Camelina sativa oil (CO) with high level of α- linolenic acid (56.1%) on plasma and liver lipids as well as on oxidative level of Sprague-Dawley rats fed with high fat diets (HFD) containing 20% fat and 1% cholesterol. Finding: Camelina sativa oil containing a high level of α-linolenic acid possesses lipid-lowering activity by regulating the blood lipid metabolism and protecting liver function.
