Hormonal implications of the hypocholesterolemic effect of intake of field beans (Vicia faba L.) by young men with hypercholesterolemia


American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 66(6): 1452-1460
Hormonal implications of the hypocholesterolemic effect of intake of field beans (Vicia faba L.) by young men with hypercholesterolemia
This study examined the hypocholesterolaemic effect and hormonal changes resulting from 30 days of supplementation with Vicia faba L. (faba beans) flour of diets of 40 men aged 18-21 years with borderline-high (total cholesterol 5.2-6.2 mmol/litre and LDL 3.4-4.1 mmol/litre (groups A and B)) or high (total cholesterol > 6.2 mmol/litre and LDL cholesterol > 4.1 mmol/litre (groups C and D)) serum cholesterol values. All subjects (groups A-D) consumed the same basic diet.
