The second study consists of group treatments, which were given high fat diet and extract of Garcinia atroviridis fruit in 3 doses (10mg, 20mg, 30mg). Each group then examined for their triglyceride level. The results were analyzed using t-test for induction method and one-way ANOVA test for the effect of extract There are no significance different between groups without extract (p=0,255). In groups with extract, there's a significance difference between groups (p=0,006). Therefore it concluded that there are significance effect of Garcinia atroviridis fruit extract in reducing triglyceride level in Wistar strain rats blood.
