  1. Each value represents a mean ± S.E.M.; n = 5; ap < 0.001: significantly different compared to water. αp < 0.001: significantly different compared to ethanol and sucrose. DAP = diastolic arterial blood pressure, MAP = mean arterial blood pressure, SAP = systolic arterial blood pressure, HR = heart rate, EtOH + Su = Ethanol and Sucrose; Ext50, Ext100 and Ext150 = Extract at the respective doses of 50, 100 and 150 mg/kg; Nif = Nifedipine (10 mg/kg).
