In view of the well-documented hypocholesterolemic and hypotriglyceridemic properties of the two bioactive spice compounds—curcumin and capsaicin— vanillin, a structural component of these two compounds was examined for a possible hypolipidemic inXuence in induced hypercholesterolemic and hypertriglyceridemic rats. A promising hypotriglyceridemic inXuence of dietary vanillin incorporated at 0.2 mg % level was evidenced in normal as well as in sucrose-induced hypertriglyceridemic rats. Lowering of serum triglyceride was to an extent of 20% and this reduction in serum triglyceride level was essentially seen in the LDL-VLDL fraction. A further study was carried out to examine the vanillin dose versus hypotriglyceridemic eVect relationship in high-fat-fed animals. Dietary vanillin produced a signiWcant hypotriglyceridemic eVect at all the dietary levels (0.125, 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, and 5.0 mg/100 g) tested. Lowering of circulatory triglyceride was accompanied by its parallel increase in liver. Vanillin at the two higher doses tested, had a remarkable body weight reducing inXuence, signiWcantly countering the accumulation of fat in the perirenal adipose tissue.
