  1. SHAM = Sham-operated control rats; OVX = ovariectomised non-honey treated control rats
  2. THL = Tualang Honey, low dose; THM = Tualang Honey, medium dose; THH = Tualang Honey, high dose
  3. All values are expressed as the median (IR).
  4. a Kruskal - Wallis test.
  5. *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 vs. OVX (Mann-Whitney U - test)
