Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract Attenuates Diet-Induced Obesity and Insulin Resistance in Mice
Effects of green coffee bean extract and 5-CQA supplementation on body weight gain, food efficiency ratio (FER), and visceral fat-pad weights of mice fed a HFD. Mice were fed the experimental diets for 11 weeks. (a) Body weight gain, (b) food intake, (c) FER, ((d), (e)) visceral fat-pad weights, (f) representative pictures of H&E-stained fat cells from mice epididymal adipose tissue (×100), and (g) densitometric analysis of adipocyte diameter in epididymal tissue. Data represent mean ± SEM, . Mean values indicated with different letters indicate statistical significance (). FER = body weight gain for experimental period (g)/food intake for experimental period (g).
