The inflammatory efficacy of supplementation of natural nano-sized clinoptilolite (NCLN) and Nigella sativa (NS) was evaluated At the end of 7th week in interleukin1β (IL1β), interleukin10 (IL-10), interleukin6 (IL-6) and platelet (PLT), white blood cell (WBC), red blood cell (RBC), hemoglobin (HGB), hematocrit (HCT), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV). 42 rats were divided into two groups as diabetic and non-diabetic. Diabetic group divided into 4 subgroups as normal control (NC), NS 1% food, NCLN 2%/food, NS 1%/food + NCLN 2%/food and fed high fat diet (HFD) for 1 month, then injected 35mg/kg BW STZ to induce type 2 diabetes (T2D). Our results showed IL-10 in NCLN and NCLN+NS groups were significantly higher NC group (p<0.05). IL-6 decreased in NS group in comparison with DC group. And PLT decreased significantly in NCLN group in comparison with other groups. Our data suggests NS and NCLN may have synergistic beneficial effects on increasing some of anti-inflammatory factors.
