The increased loss in bile acids stimulates bile acid synthesis, which uses LDL cholesterol as a substrate (47,52). Bile acid pool size need not be changed, but its composition may be. Though more data are needed, available evidence suggests that increasing the hydrophobicity of the bile acid pool will suppress endogenous cholesterol synthesis (53,54). Suppressing endogenous cholesterol Copyright © 2001 by Taylor & Francis synthesis also promotes lower blood cholesterol levels. Fermentation and its primary product, SCFA, probably have only a minor role, if any, in producing hypocholesterolemia.
