Of 16 fish, 4 different groups were made as rice bran (RB), flaxseed (FL), garden cress seed (GC) and flaxseed: Garden cress seed (FL: GC) fed groups. The FL supplemented group had the weight reduction the most and RB exhibited the least, whereas two other groups GC and FL: GC showed the marginal change in the weight parameter. Significant changes in lipid, protein and glycogen contents were seen in muscle and liver tissues. Histology of the experimental groups exhibited supporting relevance to the weight reduction (FL and FL: GC) and so lipid accumulation in tissues (RB). We hypothesized that the weight-loss appeared in FL was may be due to the suppression of hunger inducing satiety centers through signaling molecules by leading to weight loss as evidenced by the biochemical constituents and histology scores. This data would provide additional information to consider flaxseed as another potential ingredient while preparing dietary regimen.Pages: 170-174 | 686 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
