Total cholesterol levels were measured by CHOD-PAP method on day 7 (before treatment), day 17 (under hypercholesterolemia conditions) and day 31 (after treatment).Data of total cholesterol difference were analyzed using one-way ANOVA (95% confidence interval). The p-value is 0.025 (p < 0.05). Which showed that the methanol extract of Averrhoa bilimbi Linn fruit have the activity of antihypercholesterolemic.
