From: Moringa oleifera leaf extract ameliorated high-fat diet-induced obesity, oxidative stress and disrupted metabolic hormones

Fig. 2

The effects of Moringa leaf extract (ME), simvastatin (SIM) and their combination (ME+SIM) on serum glucose, insulin, leptin, gherlin, homeostasis model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and quantitative insulin sensitivity check index (QUICKI) in rats fed a high-fat diet (HFD) for 6 weeks. ME prevented the increase in serum levels of glucose metabolic hormones (leptin and gherlin), decreased insulin levels and improved HOMA-IR and QUICKI, which indicates amelioration of insulin tissue resistance. Different letters indicate significant differences between groups (p < 0.05). Values are means ±SD (n = 6)
