Mushrooms have been widely used as medicine in the treatment of several infections and also boosting the immune system.
The present study was carried out to ascertain the haematological and the antioxidants properties of aqueous extracts
. Twenty five albino rats were grouped into five, each group consisting of five
rats of A to E. group A serves as the control, group B to D were fed with
400mg, 600mg and 1000mg
concentration respectively while group E was fed with 400mg of
. On completion of the administration of
extracts, the haematological profiles and antioxidant parameters were analysed. The experimental rats showed some little
significant increase in both the haematological profile and biomarkers properties with P<0.05, Generally the haematological
profiles implies that there was no significant decrease in the level of the experimental rats immunity and also some organs
such as the liver and the kidney were intact. SOD, CAT, GSH and MDA are antioxidant enzymes measured to detect toxic
consequences of oxidative stress in mammalian systems. They are cellular and enzymatic defenses against oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress causes toxic and adaptive responses within a cell. The importance of an antioxidant defenses in protecting cells
and organisms from oxidative damage and toxicity. Further research with higher dosage of the extracts may be required to test
on laboratory rats before providing the true haematological and antioxidant properties.
