  1. Data are shown as the mean ± SEM; RJ, royal jelly; TRF, tocotrienol rich fraction; CRD, calorie restriction diet; HFD, high fat diet; TNF-α, tumor necrosis factor-α; MCP1, monocyte chemotactic protein1. * P-Value is indicated RJ, TRF and RJ + TRF versus CRD group by one-way ANOVA; ** P-Value is indicated CRD versus HFD group by t-test
