METHODS: A total of forty subjects, mean aged (Male 22.33± 1 & female28.87 ± 6.2) were assigned into study after satisfying the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Subjects were assessed at baseline and after 8 weeks for lipid profile like Total cholesterol, Triglycerides, Very Low density Lipoprotein (VLDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), and waist hip ratio. During these 8 weeks the subjects were practiced Laghoo Shankaprakshalana once a week.
