EFFECT OF SINGLE- DOSE OF DIFFERENT CONCENTRATIONS OF BOILED CINNAMON EXTRACT ON GLUCOSE LEVEL AND LIPID PROFILE IN BLOOD SERUM OF WHITE MALE NEW ZEALAND RABBITS

Abstract

This study designed to determine the effect of different levels boiled cinnamon 500, 1000, 2000 mg/kg of body weight on the glucose level and lipid profile in blood serum of white male New eland rabbits after six hours of drenching. Sixteen male rabbits aged 9-10 months had been divided into four groups.(4 rabbits each). First group that considered as a control had been given a standard ration and drenched normal salin. While the others had been drenched boiled cinnamon extract 500, 1000, 2000 mg/kg body weight in addition to the standard ration. Blood had been taken directly after 6hs of drenched from the heart and biochemical tests had been accomplished. Result revealed that there was a significant decrease in the blood glucose level in rabbits drenched boiled cinnamon extracts compared with control group. And this decrease appeared better in the fourth group that drenched 2000 mg/kg body weight boiled cinnamon extract on the probability level (P ≥ 0.05). While lipid profile of blood showed a significant decrease in cholesterol, triglycerides, low density lipoproteins, and very low density lipoproteins. In contrast to the high density lipoproteins that show a significant increase in the three boiled cinnamon extract drenched groups compared with the control at portability (P ≥ 0.05).
