Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Palm oil inclusion (5%) in a cholesterol based diet (5%) was studied to determine its effect on the peroxidation of lipids and on the activity of glutathione peroxidase activity in the liver of rabbits. Enriched membrane fractions were used to measure lipid peroxidation in vitro using thiobarbituric acid (TBA) as an indicator of lipid peroxidation. Measurements of conjugated diene levels were also carried out. Palm oil supplementation significantly (P
