Antiobesity, Regulation of Lipid Metabolism, and Attenuation of Liver Oxidative Stress Effects of Hydroxy-α-sanshool Isolated from Zanthoxylum bungeanum on High-Fat Diet-Induced Hyperlipidemic Rats

Figure 5

Effect of hydroxy-α-sanshool (HAS) on body weight (a), body weight gain (b), food intake (c), and food efficiency ratio (d) in rats consuming a high-fat diet. We measured body weight every week for 6 weeks. The food efficiency ratio is the daily weight gain divided by the daily food intake. Values are expressed as the (); ND: normal diet-treated rats; HFD: high-fat diet-treated rats; HFD+FNB: HFD supplemented with fenofibrate-treated rats; HFD+LD: rats treated with HFD supplemented with a low dose of HAS; HFD+MD: rats treated with HFD supplemented with a middle dose of HAS; HFD+HD: rats treated with HFD supplemented with a high dose of HAS; vs. ND; vs. HFD; n.s.: nonsignificant.
