The preventive effects of the major boysenberry anthocyanins (BoAnt) on liver injury, were determined in rats with liver injury induced by galactosamine (GalN). Increases in plasma AST and ALT activities, which were all induced by the injection of GalN, were relieved by the ingestion of BoAnt, suggesting that BoAnt is a food component available to prevent liver injury.
