Triglycerides and lipoproteins are threat features for Cardio Heart Disease. The word “nano” is derived from the Greek word “nanos” which means slight and it is used as introduce for one billionth part (10-9). Conferring to American Society for Testing and Materials. Nanoparticles are those atoms which have two or more than two dimensions and are in the magnitude range of 1-100 nm. lipid profile was measured by enzymatic method with using diagnostic kit from (BioMareuix, France). Gold nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical reduction, typically performed by reducing HAuCl4 in aqueous solutions using inorganic reducing agent. The results revealed a significant impact of gold nanoparticles on total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides and VLDL. The gold nanoparticles have cardio-protective and cardio-risk impact. Because it can increase the level of good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL).
