Effect of mangosteen pericarp extracts on: a body weight change, b FFA in plasma, c representative images of hematoxylin and eosin stained liver tissue. Original magnification, ×200, d Liver TG concentration, e Liver TBARS concentration. FFA: free fatty acid, TG: triacylglycerol, TBARS: thiobarbituric acid reactive substances. c: control; HFD: high fat diet; MGE: HFD supplemented with 25 mg/day mangosteen pericarp extract. Values are mean ± SD (n = 8); (*P < 0.05 versus control ; # P < 0.05 versus HFD)
