Abstract

Objective:The Western diet (WD), which is rich in highfat diet (HFD) and high-sucrose diet (HSD), is related to oxidative stress. Enriched environment (EE) with social interaction, physical exercise and continuous learning tasks has been shown to reduce oxidative stress, the inflammatory response, and increase the anti-oxidative defense. Therefore, the present study has aimed to clarify the effects of the EE and WD-fed rats on marker malondialdehyde (MDA) and trace element (TE) levels (iron [Fe], copper [Cu], zinc [Zn], chromium [Cr], selenium [Se], magnesium [Mg] and molybdenum [Mo]).
