2 – Eggplant and cholesterol

Eggplant could help to reduce cholesterol. Research suggests that nasunin, an anthocyanin in eggplant, is a potent free radical scavenger and offers protection against lipid peroxidation, which has been implicated in atherosclerosis as well as other diseases. Rabbits with high cholesterol that were given eggplant juice had their cholesterol significantly reduced. These positive effects were likely due not only to nasunin but to other phytochemicals in eggplant known as terpenes.
