  1. Data are presented as the mean ± standard deviation.
  2. HC = high cholesterol; FPS = Polysaccharide from Fuzi; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; HDL = high-density lipoprotein.
  3. ^P-values are based on analysis of variance testing.
  4. * Indicates an overall significant difference (P < 0.05).
  5. Indicates a statistically significant difference between the highlighted treatment group and the control group (P < 0.05).
  6. Indicates a statistically significant difference between the highlighted treatment group and the HC group (P < 0.05).
  7. Pair-wise multiple comparisons between groups were determined using Bonferroni's test with α = 0.007 adjustment.
