  1. Treatment with distilled water (20 g/kg), EC and ECC (5 g/kg, 10 g/kg, 20 g/kg) for 30 days; the body weight was recorded before experiment (initial), the seventh day, after 14 days (intermediate) and after 28 days (final); after exhaustive swimming, the liver, brain and heart index were detected. Values are means ± standard deviations
