Moringa oleifera Seeds Improve Aging-Related Endothelial Dysfunction in Wistar Rats
(a) Carbachol- (CCh-) induced relaxation in the aortas from young rats (YWR: 16 weeks old) and control middle-aged rats (MAWR, 50 weeks old; ,, YWR versus MAWR). (b) Relaxation curves to CCh in the aortas from MAWR and MOI-treated middle-aged rats (MOI MAWR) in the absence and in the presence of L-NAME (100 μM) (, MOI MAWR versus MAWR; , MAWR versus MAWR+L-NAME; ,, MOI MAWR versus MOI MAWR+L-NAME). (c) Histogram showing the area under the curve (AUC) of CCh-induced relaxation without and with L-NAME in YWR, MAWR, and MOI MAWR (, MAWR versus YWR; MOI MAWR versus MAWR; without L-NAME versus with L-NAME in the same group. Results are expressed in ;).
