Effects of BTS on serum glucose (a), serum insulin (b) and HOMA-IR value (c) in obese mice. HOMA-IR value was calculated as [serum glucose (mg/dL) × serum insulin (μU/mL)]/405. Doses of BTS (0, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 g/kg) were administered orally to obese mice (9 weeks of age) for 25 days under a high-fat diet. Values are expressed as mean ± SD (n = 6). 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
