  1. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of five to seven experiments for each group. Statistical differences were assessed using Dunnett's test. TC, total cholesterol; TG, triglyceride; AST, aspartate transaminase; ALT, alanine aminotransferase; HDLC, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. *p <0.05, **p <0.01 compared to the control mice.
