|Reduced the adverse effects of oxidative stress induced by dexamethasone on body weight and egg production comparing to the positive control. Additionally, pomegranate peel powder had a significant positive lowering effect on plasma cholesterol and triglyceride contents compared to control groups. The lipid peroxidation indicators (MDA) were reduced, but the antioxidative enzymes (SOD, CAT, and GPx) and total antioxidant blood capacity were improved.

|Increased the total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activities.

|resulted in significant upregulation of hepatic catalase and superoxide dismutase1, which reflected in decreased concentration of circulatory malondialdehyde (MDA). Dietary inclusion of PP at 7.5 and 1.0 g/kg significantly decreased serum concentrations of triglycerides and cholesterol with concomitant decrease in abdominal fat deposition. The antihyperlipidemic effect was mediated through down-regulation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha (PPAR?). Hypotensive effect of PP was also observed at 7.5 and 10 g/kg as reduced heart weight and the right-to-total ventricular weight ratio (RV/TV) and decreased mortality from pulmonary hypertension. The hypotensive property of PP was associated with increased concentration of serum nitric oxide. In conclusion, this study revealed antioxidative, antihyperlipidemic and hypotensive effects of PP at 7.5 and 10 g/kg in broiler chickens exposed to hypobaric hypoxia. Health-beneficial effects of PP suggest this product as a promising multi-functional phytogenic feed additive for broiler chickens.
