Introduction: Dyslipidemia is measured to be one among the 5 top most threatening factors for cardio-vascular diseases, along with hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking and obesity. Plant seeds like flax seeds are easy to consume and more effective in dyslipidemic patients. Therefore, this study is intended to conclude whether flax seed powder has any dose response on clinical variables associated with dyslipidemia in dyslipidemic patients.

Aim: To study the impact of supplementation of flax seed powder on the lipid levels as well as on the nutritional status of dyslipidemic patients.

Methodology: A private hospital, Galaxy Specialty Centre, Jaipur was selected to conduct the study. Total 100 dyslipidemic patients of age between 30 and 55 years were selected and 50 patients were given flax seed powder 15 grams per day for three months and 50 patients were kept as control. Anthropometric measurements and biochemical estimations were measured at pre and post intervention.

Results: After three months of supplementation with flax seed powder, there were significant improvements observed in the anthropometric measurements like weight, waist, hip circumference and BMI of the dyslipidemic patients. However, no changes were observed in control group. The lipid levels of the experimental group were found to be reduced significantly. The high density lipoprotein cholesterol was also increased in experimental group whereas in control group it was almost same.

Conclusion: The results indicate that intervention with flax seed powder may be regarded a useful remedial food for the management of dyslipidemia.
