Anti‐Aging Effects of Schisandrae chinensis Fructus Extract: Improvement of Insulin Sensitivity and Muscle Function in Aged Mice
Supplementation with SFe improved the insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance of aged mice. Sixteen-month-old male C57BL/6J mice were fed a diet of AIN-93G with or without SFe for 4 months. As a control, 12-month-old male C57BL/6J mice were fed a diet of AIN-93G for 4 months. Insulin tolerance tests (a) and glucose tolerance tests (b) were performed after 4 months (n = 14 per group). (c) Non‐fasting blood glucose level was measured at 0, 8, or 16 weeks after supplementation with SFe (n = 14 per group). The data are presented as the mean ± standard error (SE). .
