A randomized, double blind, standard control study was done on 60 patients of hyperlipidaemia and the role of Ayurvedic drugs as Panchatikta Ghana (Combination of Adhatoda vasica, Azadirachta indica, Tinospora cordifolia, Solanum xanthocarpum, Trichosanthes dioica) and Shuddha Guggulu (Commiphora mukul) has been evaluated by dividing the patients in two groups. It was found that Shuddha Guggulu is superior to Panchatikta Ghana in reducing the lipids i.e. S.Cholesterol, S.Triglyceride, and S.VLDL. Both the drugs have significant effect in reducing the symptoms of Medodushti and in reduction of objective parameters like weight, BMI, body circumferences such as chest, abdomen, hip and pelvis circumferences etc. and skin fold thickness as Biceps, Triceps and Abdominal skin fold thickness.
