- ... This study evaluated the protective role of litchi pericarp oligomeric procyanidins (LPOPC) and synbiotics (Bifidobacterium Bb-12 and xylo-oligosaccharide) against high fat and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes. LPOPC or synbiotics have no effect on blood glucose in normal mice. Treatments with LPOPC for 12 weeks significantly reduced blood glucose, FFA, endotoxin, GHbA1c and improved glucose ...
