Table 2 Effects of EC and ECC on glycogen levels from muscle and liver

From: Evaluation of anti-fatigue property of the extruded product of cereal grains mixed with Cordyceps militaris on mice

Group Muscle glycogen
(mg/g muscle)
Liver glycogen
(mg/g liver)
NCG 0.093 ± 0.009 0.081 ± 0.003
EC-L 0.207 ± 0.078 1.062 ± 0.083*
EC-M 0.213 ± 0.103 1.244 ± 0.090*
EC-H 0.274 ± 0.051* 1.326 ± 0.079*
ECC-L 0.425 ± 0.007*a 2.078 ± 0.055*a
ECC-M 0.476 ± 0.010*b 3.534 ± 0.083*b
ECC-H 0.533 ± 0.021*c 4.312 ± 0.131*c
  1. Treatment with distilled water (20 g/kg), EC and ECC (5 g/kg, 10 g/kg, 20 g/kg) for 30 days; After exhaustive swimming, the muscle and liver glycogen level were determined. Values are means ± standard deviations (n = 10). (*) p < 0.05 indicate statistically significant differences versus NCG; (a), (b), (c) p < 0.05 indicate statistically significant differences versus EC-L, EC-M and EC-H group respectively
