Indian medicinal plants have potent effects in treating diseases such as hypercholesterolemia. This review was performed on published Indian articles on hypocholesterolemic effect of Indian medicinal plants through literature search using Cochrane Library Database, Embase, Sci-finder, Pubmed with MeSH keywords and abstracts of Medicinal and Aromatic plants. All databases were searched from their respective inception until April 2011. About 15,620 papers were obtained using related titles and keywords through the electronic databases as well as various other sources. Therefore, 110 papers were finalized on native and naturalized Indian medicinal plants (24) belonging to various families and were then reviewed. Hypocholesterolemic effect of Indian medicinal plants was furnished with available animal models and clinical trials, which contribute to design new strategies to manage hypercholesterolemia.
