Title: The Effect Of Feeding Nigella Sativa Lon The Levels Of Liver And Serum Triacylglycerol And Cholesterol In Broiler Chicks
Author: AHMED, MONJID
Abstract: This study was conducted to investigate the effect of feeding black cumin (Nigella sativa) on the concentration of serum and liver total cholesterol and triacylglycerols Hundred broiler chicks of one day old were used in this study. The hens were blocked randomized in to groups (A, B and C) of 33 hens the groups were kept separately Group (A) was fed commercial broiler hens feed 100 g/day free of black cumin (control group) ,while groups (B) and (C) were fed the same dite but replaced with 0.25% and 0.75% of black cumin seeds respectively this program was conducted for six weeks The statistical analysis of the data revealed that addition of 0.25% black cumin seeds to the broiler hens’ diet caused insignificant increase in the concentration of the serum total cholesterol at week (5) and significant increase at week (6),but significant decrease was showed in the liver. Whereas the addition of 0.75% ofblack cumin resulted significant decrees in concentration of the total cholesterol in the blood and liver at the same time. On the other hand the addition of black cumin with the two percentages (0.25%-0.75%) of black cumin to the broiler diet resulted a significant decrease in the concentration of the triacylglycerols
