The biological experiment was carried out to determine the serum lipid profile and chicken meat cholesterol levels as influenced by Triphala supplementation in broilers. A total of three hundred commercial one day-old sex separated broiler chicks were randomly grouped into six treatments with five replicates for each treatment containing ten chicks per replicate. The chicks were reared from day-old to 35 days of age in deep litter system under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. The treatment groups were fed with basal diet without supplementation of antibiotic growth promoter / Triphala (T1) or with supplementation of Oxytetracycline at 0.004 per cent (T2), or with supplementation of Triphala at 0.025 per cent (T3), 0.05 per cent (T4), 0.075 per cent (T5) or 0.10 per cent (T6). At the end of the experiment (35th day), one male and one female bird per replicate, totally ten birds per treatment group were randomly selected. Blood samples were collected for serum lipid profile and meat cholesterol level studies.  The experiment revealed that there existed no significant differences in triglycerides and very low density lipoprotein level of serum among the treatment groups. Supplementation of Triphala decreased the serum total cholesterol of broiler chicken in dose dependant fashion with lowest cholesterol recorded in the group supplemented with 0.10 per cent Triphala in diet (T6). The groups supplemented with Triphala had significantly (P<0.01) lowered total cholesterol in serum, breast and thigh meat, and increased ratio of HDL: LDL in serum of broiler chicken in a dose dependent manner with maximum effect at 0.10 per cent Triphala supplementation (T6) than control (T1) and antibiotic supplemented group (T2).
