Abstract:   (1902 Views)
Background and Objectives: In recent years, prevalence of hypercholesterolemia has increased, especially in elderly people who are susceptible to increased levels of total cholesterol. Apples include active ingredients that act as antioxidant, anti-proliferation, lipid oxidation inhibitor, anti-hypercholesterol, and weight loss agents. The aim of this study was to investigate how Fuji apple juice affected total cholesterol levels in elderly people.
Materials and Methods: This study was an experimental study that was carried out on 26 elderly people with a history of hypercholesterolemia, dividing into two major groups using randomized pre post test control group design with randomized controlled trial. The control group (G0) received no medication, while the experimental group (G1) received the Fuji apple juice of 200 ml for 14 days. Paired t-test and independent t-test were used to analyze the results.
Results: The mean pre-post G0 total cholesterol increased by 22.38 with, no significant changes (p > 0.05). The mean pre-post G1 total cholesterol decreased by 27.62, suggesting statistically significant changes (p < 0.05).
Conclusions: In conclusion, use of 200 ml of Fuji apple juice for 14 days decreased total cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemia elderly people.
Keywords: Elderly People, Fuji Apple Juice, Total Cholesterol
