Female mice were administered a single dose of each plant extract at doses of 2000 mg/kg and 5000 mg/kg and mean body weight was recorded before the treatment (day 0) and on days 7 and 14. The control group received 200 µL of distilled water. HEEF; hydroethanolic extracts of E. floribundus; HEAI: hydroethanolic extracts of A. indica.
