ABSTRACT:
The liver function tests of the animals fed P. americana showed that the enzyme activities of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) was 57.35 ± 4.40IU/L, aspartate aminotransferase 77.44 ± 3.53IU/L and alkaline phosphatase 170.73 ± 6.52IU/L while the enzyme activity of those fed D. edulis was 45.57 ± 2.28IU/L AST, 68.26 ± 3.69IU/L AST and 153.36 ± 19.08IU/L ALP. AST and ALT increased significantly (p<0.05) in the sera of rats administered P. americana pulp compared with those fed D. edulis. However, no significant difference was observed (p>0.05) was observed in the ALP activities of the three groups. The total cholesterol level of animals administered D. edulis (75.76 ± 5.37mg/dl) was lower compared with those administered P. americana (115.75 ± 22.6mg/dl).
