Dietary Genistein Could Modulate Hypothalamic Circadian Entrainment, Reduce Body Weight, and Improve Glucose and Lipid Metabolism in Female Mice

Figure 1

Dietary genistein could reduce energy intake and body weight in mice fed a high-fat diet. (a) Mean food intake during the experimental period expressed as grams per day; (b) mean energy intake expressed as kcal per day; (c) body weight by the end of the study. CON: normal control diet; HF: high-fat diet without genistein; HFG: high-fat diet with genistein. Data are expressed as means ± S.E.M. (n=8/group). Mean values were significantly different between other groups and the CON group: p<0.05; p<0.01; p<0.001; p<0.0001. Mean values were significantly different between HF group and the HFG group: p<0.05, p<0.01, p<0.001, p <0.0001.
