To determine the effects of cumin supplementation (Cuminum cyminum L.) on plasma lipids, the authors of this systematic review and meta-analysis have compiled results from 6 randomized and controlled studies (376 subjects).




They showed that cumin supplementation can reduce plasma concentration of total cholesterol (mean difference (MD) = -10.90 mg/dL, 95% CI: -21.39, -0.42, p = 0.042) and LDL-cholesterol (MD = -6.94 mg/dL, 95% CI: -11.53, -2.35, p = 0.003) in comparison to control treatment.

In addition, HDL-cholesterol levels were found to be increased by the supplementations (MD = 3.35 mg/dL, 95% CI: 1.58, 5.12, p < 0.001). Finally, cumin tended to decreased triglycerides levels (MD = -20.48 mg/dL, 95% CI: -41.23, -0.26, p = 0.053).


In conclusion, this meta-analysis suggest that cumin supplementation is effective for the management of dyslipidemia.
