Used to lower serum cholesterol
Daily use of hawthorn 1 two, Mao Dongqing 2 two, divided into 2 decoction. 20 cases were observed. The average serum cholesterol before treatment was 253.2 mg%, and decreased to 207 mg% after treatment. The average decrease was 46.2 mg% per case. After statistical treatment, the difference was very significant. Eleven of the 20 patients had serum cholesterol reduced to less than 200 mg%, with an average of 62.9 mg per case. It is believed that the role played by hawthorn is the main one, because Mao Dongqing reduces the effect of serum cholesterol, and the observation results are quite inconsistent in various places. It is still difficult to be sure; and 4 of the cases in this group have served the hawthorn alone and did not use Mao Dongqing. The effect, the average serum cholesterol before taking the drug was 259.7 mg%, and the drug was reviewed until the 6th week, and decreased to 214 mg%.
