    Abstract

    Cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) apple are rich in nutritional value, especially vitamine C and bioactive compounds such as tannins that are very beneficial to support health. This research aims to find out the effects of cashew apple juice of lipid profile and its potential as an anti-Hypercholesterol agent. In this study used experimental animals in the form of male Whistar Rats Type (Rattus norvegicus Berkenhout, 1769) as much as 21 rats are divided into three groups and each group consists of seven rats were fed with AIN '76 diet for 28 d, given the treatment of cashew apple fruit juice 2 mL, two times a day by were force-fed and as control treatment is given only drinking aquabidest. The results showed that cashew apple juice was influential for the lipid profile of the whistar rats experiment, potentially as an anti-Hypercholesterol agent by lowering total cholesterol levels 6.37 % to 7.16 %, Triglyseride (9.71 % to 10.76 %) LDL- Cholesterol (11.19 % to 13.37 %) and increased cholesterol levels of HDL (6.10 % to 6.46 %).
