Abstract:
A study was conducted to investigate the effect of Moringa oleifera leaf meal (MOLM) on serum and muscle lipid profile in broiler chicken. A total of 216 numbers of day old - broiler (Cobb 400) chicks were randomly divided into six experimental groups with six replicates, six chicks per replicate. Chicks were distributed in 4 different inclusion levels of MOLM in diets; Such as 750 ppm, 1000 ppm, 1250 ppm & 1500 ppm with basal ration and basal ration with AGP. The results showed that the lowest serum cholesterol (149.91 mg/dl) and triglycerides (125.19 mg/dl), was observed in T4. The HDL (mg/dl) in MOLM supplemented groups ie. T4 (77.37), T5 (79.74) and T6 (79.80) was significantly (P<0.01) higher than T1 (70.01) and T2 (70.85). Similarly, the MOLM supplemented groups had significantly (P<0.01) reduced cholesterol level (mg/g) in thigh (108.43-113.59) and breast muscle (75.53-76.39) than T1 (122.42 and 84.27) and T2 (120.06 and 83.23). It is concluded that MOLM supplementation resulted in increased serum HDL and decreased serum cholesterol, LDL, triglyceride and muscle cholesterol levels.
