 en Effect Of Hibiscus Sabdariffa check for this species in other resources Calyx Extract On Carbon Tetrachloride Induced Liver Damage
Dahiru, D.; Obi, O.J. & Umaru, H.

Abstract

The effect of aqueous ethanol (1:1) extract of the calyx of Hibiscus sabdariffa check for this species in other resources on carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced liver damage was investigated. Oral administration of the extract following a single CCl4 dose promoted the healing of oxidative liver damage as determined by serum aminotransferases, ALT, AST, levels and liver thiobarbituric acid reactive substances levels. It appeared from the study that the extract of Hibiscus sabdariffa enhances the recovery from hepatic damage induced by CCl4.
