Cardiovascular diseases are leading cause of death in western and eastern countries of the world. Hyperlipidemia is one of the strong risk fractions for heart diseases. To evaluate hypolipidemic drugs efficacy, the study was conducted at Ghurki trust teaching hospital, Lahore Pakistan from January 2012 to August 2012. Ninty hyperlipidemic patients were selected from cardiology and medical wards of the hospital. They were divided in three groups, one at placebo therapy, another on Kalonji and third one on Vitamin B3. After one and half month, significant changes (p value ranging from <0.05 to <0.001) were observed in their LDL and HDL-cholesterol. Conclusion of the study was to recommend use of herbal medicine and vitamin B3 for prevention of any heart diseases with good patient compliance.
