Gastrodin Reduces Blood Pressure by Intervening with RAAS and PPARγ in SHRs

Figure 4

Effects of 4-week treatment with gastrodin on heart rate of rats. Ten-week-old male Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) were obtained. SHRs were randomly divided into model (SHR) and treatment groups (GAS). WKY belonged to control group (WKY). The first two weeks was adaptation period. Starting from the third week, rats in GAS group were intraperitoneally injected with gastrodin at the dose of 100 mg/(kg⋅d) for 4 weeks. The rest of the rats were not given any intervention. The heart rate was recorded weekly during the experimental period. Values are shown as means ± SEM.
