Liver protecting, lipid level lowering and HDL‐cholesterol enhancing activities of a lyophilized extract of Sempervivum tectorum L. were examined in experimental hyperlipidaemia, in the pathomechanism of steatotic liver of rats. Diffuse hepatocellular degeneration caused by a fat rich diet was improved after treatment with this extract.
