Table 2 Total, HDL, and non-HDL cholesterol concentrations in the serum

From: Effects of dietary fucoxanthin on cholesterol metabolism in diabetic/obese KK-Ay mice

  Control (mg/dl) Fucoxanthin
Total cholesterol 119.0 ± 10.3 169.2 ± 7.3**
HDL cholesterol 85.6 ± 5.2 109.1 ± 6.9*
Non-HDL cholesterol 33.4 ± 9.1 60.1 ± 4.9*
  1. KK-Ay mice were fed with the AIN-93G diet with or without 0.2% fucoxanthin for 4 weeks. Total and HDL-cholesterol was measured by an enzymatic method. Non-HDL-cholesterol was calculated by subtracting HDL-cholesterol from total-cholesterol. Each value represents the mean ± standard error (n = 6). Asterisk show significant differences from the control group (*P < 0.05<, **P < 0.01).
