Lipid HDL is considered as good cholesterol for health and is known to prevent diseases like coronary artery disease (CAD), atherosclerosis, obesity, hypertension and dis-lipidemia. Similarly in Ayurveda Pravara Sara indicates good health condition from Medas point of view. Hence this study was undertaken to ascertain whether any correlation exists between Medo-Sara and HDL. However the results of this study carried out on 100 healthy individuals showed that there was no significant correlation between the both.
