Body weight (B.W.) changes during the experiments (mean ± SD); a positive (+) value shows an increase of the body of the rat whereas a negative value (−) shows decrease of the body of the rat.
Values are significantly different from G4, G5, G6, and G7 .
Values are significantly different from those of controls (G1–G3) .
Values are significantly different from those of silibinin (G5) .
Values are significantly different from G7 (400 mg pollen/kg B.W.) .
