Comparison of lipid accumulation in the liver of Wistar rats which was fed with either of standard laboratory diet (SD), or high-fat diet (HFD), or HFD with TILE. TILE was given orally everyday throughout the study period either in low dose (HFD + TILE100), or intermediate dose (HFD + TILE200) or high dose (HFD + TILE400). Photomicrographs (a-e) showing lipid droplets (LD) are representative one of the 3 experiments for a particular group. Additionally, percent lipid accumulation (f) was quantified by ImageJ software (version 1.52a). Data was analyzed by one way ANOVA followed by Newman-Keuls’s post-hoc test and expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 6). Values with different superscript letters within the same row are significantly different at p < 0.05
