Table 2 Daily fluid and phenolic intakes of control and experimental rats

From: Amelioration of lipopolysaccharide-induced liver injury by aqueous rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) extract via inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress

Treatment Water/Rooibos intake/day/100 g BW (mL) Total phenolic intake (mg GAE/day/100 g BW) Flavonol intake (mg QE/day/100 g BW) Flavanol intake (mg CE/day/100 g BW)
Control 10.44 ± 1.06 ND ND ND
LPS 10.68 ± 0.76 ND ND ND
Rooibos 9.86 ± 0.88 10.45 ± 0.93 4.20 ± 0.38 1.59 ± 0.14
Rooibos + LPS 9.92 ± 0.49 10.51 ± 0.52 4.23 ± 0.21 1.60 ± 0.08
  1. Calculations of the total phenolic, flavonol and flavanol intakes were calculated based on the soluble solid intake obtained from the average rooibos consumption per day. Values are mean ± SD (n = 10). ND (not determined), BW (body weight), CE (catechin equivalent), GAE (gallic acid equivalent), QE (quercetin equivalent), LPS (lipopolysaccharide).
