Green tea (GT) and Chamomile tea (CT) are one of the most important beverages which is used worldwide. They have become a subject of interest because of the beneficial effects on human health in recent years. In this study which was to demonstrate the cholesterol reducing-effects of Camiella sinesis, Matricaria chamomilla and their blend teas on serum lipids of Wistar rats. The animals were divided into control group (CG) and nine treated groups: GT1, GT3, GT5 treated with green tea; CT1, CT3, CT5 treated with Chamomile tea and GT+CT1, GT+CT3, GT+CT5 treated with blended green tea and chamomile tea of 10 mg/kg.BW/ml, 30 mg/kg.BW/ml and 50 mg/kg.BW/ml concentrations respectively. The teas were administered orally once in a day for 30 days. GT3, GT5; CT3, CT5 and GT+CT3, GT+CT5 animals showed significant decrease in triglycerides and total cholesterol and slight increase in HDL-c levels. The levels of LDL-c decreased in the treated groups compared to control group. The results of this study say that the individual tea samples have a significant effect on lipid profile and the teas are capable of improving the cardiovascular health.
