Figure 6: Levels of lipid peroxidation (expressed as thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, nmol/mg protein) and activities (international units/mg protein) of catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in brain tissues after 6 weeks of treatment in controls (c), (Lav) mice received the essential oil of Lavandula officinalis,(hydrogen peroxide) group given hydrogen peroxide for 2 weeks and (Lav + HP) animals pretreated with lavender then gavaged by hydrogen peroxide. Values are the mean of 6 measurements ± standard deviation.+P < 0.05 compared to hydrogen peroxide group, * P < 0.05 compared to control Group (c), ** P < 0.01 compared to Hydrogen peroxide group, **P < 0.01 compared to control Group (c)
