Rat models with experimental hyperlipidemia were fed with lyophilized royal jelly 700 mg/kg body weight daily for six weeks. Results showed lyophilized royal jelly can reduce serum cholesterol level (P < 0.01) and increase high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol level (P < 0.05). Lyophilized royal jelly can also increase the red cell deformability (RCD) and decrease plasma fibrinogen level. Thrombus was formed less in trial animals than in controls with a statistical significance. It suggested lyophilized royal jelly can be used in preventing and treatment of hyperlipidemia, and improving highly-coagulant status of blood.
