Table 2 Final body weight and effects of CCGG supplementation on food intake, water intake and food efficiency ratio

From: Effects of combined extract of cocoa, coffee, green tea and garcinia on lipid profiles, glycaemic markers and inflammatory responses in hamsters

  Vehicle HCD CCGG-1X CCGG-2X CCGG-5X
  Mean SEM Mean SEM Mean SEM Mean SEM Mean SEM
Final body weight (g/hamster) 120.4 2.0 130.6 4.2 120.7 3.7 120.5 3.7 109.9** 2.8
Food intake (g/hamster/week) 71.8 6.9 68.5 6.0 66.0 6.5 76.1 9.6 80.6 9.0
Water intake (g/hamster/week) 78.8** 4.2 60.6 3.8 62.1 3.0 59.4 3.3 51.6 2.7
Food efficiency ratio (%) 4.2 0.8 5.4 0.9 4.7 0.9 3.9 1.1 1.2* 0.6
  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SEM. Statistical significance was determined using the one-way ANOVA with Tukey’s posttest
  2. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 compared with HCD
  3. Food efficiency ratio = Body weight gain (g)/Food intake (g)
  4. Vehicle; vehicle control, HCD; high-cholesterol diet control, CCGG-1X; high-cholesterol diet with 311 mg/kg/d of CCGG, CCGG-2X; high-cholesterol diet with 622 mg/kg/d of CCGG, CCGG-5X; high-cholesterol diet with 1555 mg/kg/d of CCGG
