  1. The data are given as mean ± S.EM (n = 9). Values are statistically significant at *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01. Control group was given distilled water while treated group was given 500 mg/kg of the extract. AEF: aqueous extract of flowers. HDL-CH: High density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-CH – Low density lipoprotein cholesterol, ALT: Alanin aminotransferase levels; AST: serum Aspartate aminotransferase. The data was analyzed by parametric method-ANOVA
