Stevioside from Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni Increases Insulin Sensitivity in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes

Figure 3

Glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 adipocytes exposed to (a) insulin and (b) TNF-α. Optimum insulin concentration to stimulate glucose uptake was 100 nM, while optimum TNF-α concentration to reduce glucose uptake was 1.0 ng/mL. Mean ± SEM ( ). Statistically significant compared to control (* , ** , *** , ANOVA & Dunnett’s test).
