Effects of BTS (2.0 g/kg) on total fat mass, visceral fat mass, and body fat percentage in obese mice measured by computed tomography. Shown is a typical example of fat mass. Purple areas are fat masses, and blue areas are skeletal muscle and organ masses. Body fat percentage was calculated as [area of fat mass]/[(area of fat mass) + (area of muscle and organ masses)] × 100. Values expressed as mean ± SD (n = 3). P values in parenthesis were calculated by Student’s t test. P < 0.05, BTS group is significantly different from control group without BTS
