  1. Cd cadmium, ILp + Cd inulin, Lactobacillus plantarum and cadmium, IBc + Cd inulin, Bacillus coagulans and cadmium. Values are expressed as mean ± SD. The different small letters indicate statistically significant differences in columns (P < 0.05). The different capital letters indicate statistically significant differences between days in each parameter (P < 0.05).
