Tajoda, H.N.; Kurian, J.C.; Bredenkamp, M.B.

The effect of apple and lemon on lipid profile was studied. Forty-five people with hyperlipidaemia were chosen. The forty-five respondents were randomly assigned to three groups. The first group was given an apple a day the second group one lemon drink per day, the third group was given the combination of an apple and a lemon per day. Three other variables were noted namely diet, exercise, and stress. From the findings apple significantly increased the HDL level and lemon significantly reduced the LDL level. While the use of both apple and lemon significantly reduced the LDL level. Since the model requires the inclusion of proper exercise and reduction of fat intake, the positive effects of lemon and apple in conjunction with lemon must be accompanied by ideal exercise and the reduction of fat intake.
