This study was designed to determine the impact of some artificial and alcoholicsweeteners (sucralose, T1, rebaudioside-A, T2 , xylitol ,T3 , and sorbitol, T4) on the level of some lipids and blood sugar in growing rats. The results showed a significant positive effect at (p≤0.05) on total cholesterol (TC) in serum in rats given sorbitol (T4) and xylitol (T3) which were 22.67 and 24.83 mg /dl respectively, compared with blank control (T *) and sucrose control (T0) (32.67 and 30.17 mg /dl). No significant decrease was noticed in triglycerides (TG) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) values in T4, T3, T2 and T1 treatments (40.83 and 8.17, 41.33 and 8.27, 47.33 and 9.47 and 48.50 and 9.75 mg/dl respectively), compared with T *(61.66 and 12.33) and T0 (52.50 and 10.50 mg /dl). A significant decrease in blood sugar in the rats given sucralose, rebaudioside-A , xylitol and sorbitol (97.00, 103.83 , 119.00 and 119.17 mg /dl respectively), while in blank control (T *) and sucrose control (T0) blood sugar found to be 129.83 and 143.00 mg/dl respectively. It was concluded that the artificial and alcoholic sweeteners, which used, play a positive role in reducing the level of blood lipids and blood sugar in rats.

This study designed to determine the effect of  different levels boiled cinnamon 500, 1000, 2000 mg/kg of body weight on the glucose level and lipid profile in blood serum of white male New eland rabbits after  six hours of drenching. Sixteen male rabbits aged 9-10 months had been divided into four groups.(4 rabbits  each). First group that considered as a control had been given a standard ration and drenched normal salin. While the others had been drenched boiled cinnamon extract 500, 1000, 2000 mg/kg body weight in addition to the standard ration. Blood had been taken directly after 6hs of drenched from the heart and biochemical tests had been accomplished. Result revealed that there was a significant decrease in the blood glucose level in rabbits drenched boiled cinnamon extracts compared with control group. And this decrease appeared  better in the fourth group that drenched 2000 mg/kg body weight boiled cinnamon extract on the probability level (P ≥ 0.05). While lipid profile of blood showed a significant decrease in cholesterol, triglycerides, low density lipoproteins, and very low density lipoproteins. In  contrast to the high density lipoproteins that show a significant increase in the three boiled cinnamon extract drenched groups compared with the control at portability (P ≥ 0.05).
