  1. Rats fed regular chow (C and W), supplemented with SLOil (CSLO and WSLO), FOil (CFO and WFO) and both (CSLO + FO and WSLO + FO). Data are presented as mean ± SEM of 4 independent experiments of 5 rats per group (n = 20). ap < 0.05 compared to W; bp < 0.01 compared to C; cp < 0.01 compared to WSLO.
