"Metabolic Disorder in human beings is considered as a major disease burden in developed as well as developing world. Hyperlipidemia is a metabolic disorder characterized by elevated levels of lipids (fats) including cholesterol and triacylglycerol, circulating the blood and causing serious complications in cardiovascular system. The medicinal plants and its active components provide an exciting opportunity and promise for the new therapeutic approaches to the treatment of Hyperlipidemia and constitute alternative tool to other pharmacological agents. Based on this rational the present volume presents 19 review articles embodying recent data on worldwide studies on medicinal plants broadly directed towards discovery of new drugs of plant origin. The articles included in the volume provides an insight on the phytochemical components of the plants------ Acorus calamus, Allium cepa, Allium sativum, Amaranthus spinosus, Camellia sinensis, Catharanthus sinensis, Citrus medica, Emblica officinalis, Moringa oleifera, Picrorhiza kurroa, Piper lungum, Piper nigrum, Premna mucronata, Pterocarpus marsupium, Terminalia belerica, Terminalia. arjuna, Trigonella foenum graecum , Zingiber officinale-----. that contribute to antihyperlipidemic effects. These plants can promote reduction of lipids levels in the blood and helps in the process of controlling the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), TC and HDL cholesterol and several as a potential source of bioactive metabolites for the CHDs. Therefore, content of the volume clearly indicates the current progress by reviewing and role of herbal medicines for the hyperlipidemic disorders, Initial chapters in the volume revealed the various pathophysiological process of hyperlipidemia and regulatory mechanism of cholesterol with multiple lipoproteins. In brief, the volume summarized the medicinal values of few selected plants characterized for phytochemistry, pharmacological actions, biological efficacy, toxicological and safety reference and proven potential with molecular mechanism for the management and treatment of hyperlipidemia. The volume is aimed at a wide range of audience of ethnobotanists, phytochemists, pharmacologists, pharmacists, pharmacognosists and other research scientists engaged in the search of new drugs from natural resources for Hyperlipidemia treatment.
