Effects of BTS on body weight in high-fat diet-fed obese mice. ICR mice (4 weeks of age) were provided a high-fat diet for 5 weeks ad libitum. Doses (0, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 g/kg) of BTS were administered orally to obese mice at 9 weeks of age for 25 days under continued high-fat diet. Body weights were measured on days 0, 6, 12, 18, and 25 during administration. Body weight changes were calculated from day 0 before administration of BTS to day 25. Values are expressed as mean ± SD (n = 6–8). Differences between group means were evaluated by Tukey’s or Scheffe’s tests. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01: significantly different from control water group without BTS
