Table 1 Morphological changes in rats liver assessed by NAFLD activity score (NAS)

From: Short-term periodic consumption of multiprobiotic from childhood improves insulin sensitivity, prevents development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and adiposity in adult rats with glutamate-induced obesity
