Fig. 5

Analysis of body composition of lean and obese mice given low, standard and high vitamin D supplementation. The effects of high fat and low fat diet containing varying levels of vitamin D on body fat % a and the gain in lean body mass over 48 weeks b were analyzed using DEXA. No statistical differences observed between vitamin D groups. Differences between all lean and obese mice were significant for body fat % (at all time points, ****p < 0.0001) and gain in lean body mass (a versus b, **p = 0.002)
