Atherosclerosis is a chronic arterial disease responsible for the majority of vascular related deaths throughout the world. Immune cells and inflammation in conjunction with hyperlipidemia, play a key role in atherosclerosis development. Regarding the low efficacy of synthetic drugs and also the associated negative side effects which can adversely influence health-related quality of life, looking for natural, affordable and non-toxic substances appears to be necessary.
