Most serum biochemical parameters were within normal range (Charles River, 2008), except the pharmacological effects in AST (SGOT), creatinine, BUN, CPK, and LDH in treated males; cholesterol in both treated genders, after 13-week E. longifolia powdered root ingestions. Data were expressed as Mean ± S.D. . Statistical analysis: , , and indicate a statistical difference with the control group by one-way ANOVA.
