Protective role of Nigerian honey on sperm indices and testis in sucrose-fed rat

Oyelowo Oluwakemi , Adekunbi Daniel , Dada Kayode

This study aimed at investigating the effect of high sucrose diet on male reproductive function and if Nigerian honey could exert a protective role. Twenty-four rats were randomly divided into four equal groups of six animals and given water (control); honey (H); high sucrose solution (30%w/v) (HSS); and both high sucrose solution (30%w/v) and honey (HSS+H). Each rat on honey received a daily dose of 10 ml honey/kg per 5 ml of distilled water. Food intake, body weight, organ w...

Coffee attenuates induction of insulin resistance in high sucrose-diet fed rats

Morakinyo Ayodele , Adekunbi Daniel , Dada Kayode , Adegoke Olufeyi

Several epidemiological evidences indicate that consumption of coffee is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); however, there is dearth of experimental data to support these observations. Given that associations do not necessarily infer causality; the present study investigate the effect of coffee consumption on glucose regulation, T2DM and the probable mechanisms of action, if any, using an animal model. Twenty-four (24) Sprague–Dawley rats wei...
