The hypolipidemic activity of Lantana camara was studied on high fat diet induced models of hyperlipedemia in rats. Hyper lipidemia condition established by butter was evidenced by enhancement in levels of cholesterol, tri-glycerides, LDL, VLDL. Methanolic extract showed significant hypolipidemic effect by lowering of serum levels of serum cholesterol, TG, LDL, VLDL and increased dl level. Ethanobotanical knowledge of medicinal plants is some of the most prominent source of new drugs and has shown potential results for treatment of obesity. Prelimnary phytochemical analysis revealed thye presence of phyto constituents such as steroids, flavinoids, alkaloids.
