Dietary taurine or glycine supplementation reduces plasma and liver cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations in rats fed a cholesterol-free diet



Dietary taurine or glycine supplementation reduces plasma and liver cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations in rats fed a cholesterol-free diet



Nutrition Research 19(12): 1777-1789



The effects of dietary supplementation of taurine or glycine on plasma and hepatic lipid concentrations were evaluated in rats fed a cholesterol-free diet. Three groups of male rats (140-150 g) were fed a cholesterol-free diet (CFD), a taurine supplemented diet (TSD; CFD + 1.5% taurine) or a glycine-supplemented diet (GSD; CFD + 1.5% glycine) for 5 weeks. There was no significant difference in organ weights and cumulative body weight gain between groups.
