The effect of diet enriched with a monounsaturated fatty acid (olive oil) on serum lipoproteins, biliary cholesterol saturation index, and gallbladder motility compared with a standard low-fat diet was evaluated in 11 young volunteers admitted to a metabolic ward. A significant decrease of mean total cholesterol (-9.5%), total apo B (-7.4%), LDL cholesterol (-12.2%), and total triglycerides (-25.5%) was observed after the olive-oil-enriched diet.

Cholesterol saturation index of the bile and fasting and after-meal gallbladder volumes were unaffected by the enriched diet as compared with the low-fat diet.

Abstract

The effect of diet enriched with a monounsaturated fatty acid (olive oil) on serum lipoproteins, biliary cholesterol saturation index, and gallbladder motility compared with a standard low-fat diet was evaluated in 11 young volunteers admitted to a metabolic ward. A significant decrease of mean total cholesterol (-9.5%), total apo B (-7.4%), LDL cholesterol (-12.2%), and total triglycerides (-25.5%) was observed after the olive-oil-enriched diet. Total HDL- and HDL-subfractions-cholesterol levels as well as serum apo A-I mean levels remained unchanged. Cholesterol saturation index of the bile and fasting and after-meal gallbladder volumes were unaffected by the enriched diet as compared with the low-fat diet. Olive oil may be a natural fat that can be used for the control of plasma and LDL cholesterol as a valid alternative to polyunsaturated fatty acids
