A review on role of vitamin supplements on the lipid profile.
Hyperlipidemia can be defined as a medical condition characterized by an increase in plasma lipids and plasma lipoproteins. This higher level of plasma lipids could be a major risk factor associated with various cardiovascular diseases. Over the years, statins and fibrates evolved to become the foremost widely prescribed agents for the elevated lipid profile even with their side effects. The current review focuses mainly on the ''role of vitamins within the lipid profile of hyperlipidemic patients, different classes of hyperlipidemia, pharmacological treatment and also the influence of the vitamin supplements with respect to the lipid metabolism''. This review suggests that a hyperlipidemic treatment regimen along with vitamins may help reduce the high serum lipid levels and thereby reduce the risk in the development of cardiovascular diseases.Author(s): Rangapriya M*, Neenu Wilson, Neeya Johny, Niranjana S
