Figure 2: Citrus unshiu peel prevents high-fat diet-induced obesity and ameliorates serum biochemical parameters. C57BL/6 mice were fed a normal diet or high-fat diet for 6 weeks, and a low (Citrus unshiu peel 1, 250 μg/mL) or high (Citrus unshiu peel 2, 500 μg/mL) dose of Citrus unshiu peel was administered to the high-fat diet-fed mice for an additional 8 weeks. (a) Final body weight. (b) Final epididymal adipose tissue weight. (c) H and E staining (scale bar, 250 μm). (d) Serum glucose level. (e) Serum triglyceride level. (f) Serum total cholesterol level. The data are presented as the mean ± standard errors of means for 6 mice. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 versus normal diet fed mice. #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 vsersus high-fat diet-fed mice alone
