Figure 1: Comparisons of relative serum glycoalbumin levels between TW and BMW consumption periods. Glycoalbumin levels were expressed as a relative value to week 0. (a) Individual data of mean relative glycoalbumin levels of weeks 1 and 3 (TW) and weeks 2 and 4 (BMW) were shown in dot plots overlaid on box plots. Plots corresponding to the same individuals were connected with red, blue, or gray lines when the values were decreased, increased, or not changed in BMW consumption periods as compared with TW consumption periods, respectively. Plots were also colored in the same color as their lines. (b) Records of weekly glycoalbumin levels. Data were expressed as mean ± standard deviation (SD). Significances between week 0 and each week were shown at top of the graph. .
