Improved Insulin Resistance and Lipid Metabolism by Cinnamon Extract through Activation of Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors
CE promoted 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation. 3T3-L1 cells were stained with oil red O at day 5. (a) Undifferentiated control cells; (b) DM (insulin 10 g/mL, dexam: 1 M,
IBMX: 0.5 mM)-induced
differentiated cells; (c) DM-induced differentiated cells + CE 0.2 mg/mL;
(d) DM-induced differentiated cells + CE 0.6 mg/mL; (e) HE
staining of WAT from high-fat diet control (HFC) mice; (f) HE staining of WAT
from HF + CE-treated mice.
