Haematobiochemical evaluation of bracken (Pteridium aquilinum) and cheilanthes (Cheilanthes farinosa) fern feeding in guinea pigs

Haematobiochemical evaluation of bracken (Pteridium aquilinum) and cheilanthes (Cheilanthes farinosa) fern feeding in guinea pigs

Indian Journal of Environment and Toxicology 10(1): 30-33

When bracken and Cheilanthes ferns (30%) were included in the diet of guineapigs for sixty days, feed intake decreased up to the 5th week in the Cheilanthes group followed by an increase up to the last week, but in the bracken group the decrease continued up to the 60th day. Body weight gain in both fern fed groups was lower than the untreated control until the last week. A significant decrease was observed in the serum total protein and albumin content.
