  1. Note: The data presented as the means ± SD (n = 8). Organ indices = weight of organ/body weight ×100. Different letter in the column a,b shows significant difference among treatments at P < 0.05. SL indicates mice group injected with D-galactose. CK indicates injection of sterile saline (0.85 % NaCl) into mice instead of D-galactose. Supplement of Vitamin C after D-galactose injection is named as Vc group. The L. plantarum NJAU-01 was grown in De Man, Rogosa, Sharpe (MRS) at 37 °C for 18 h. The intact cells were washed by sterile saline for three times and then adjusted to 1.0 × 109 CFU/mL, 108 CFU/mL, and 107 CFU/mL, respectively. Supplement of L. plantarum NJAU-01 at 107 CFU/mL, 108 CFU/mL, and 109 CFU/mL level after D-galactose injection are designated as LP1, LP2 and LP3, respectively
