  1. Mother – C is MC group – mother received water; Mother – E is ME group - mother received green tea extract; Pups 28d – C is FC group – pup from mothers received water; Pups 28d – E is FE group – pup from mothe received green tea extract. Data are mean ± SEM (n = 8–13); *p < 0.05, versus control group of the respective treatment.
