At the end of each study, hematological and biochemical analysis were evaluated. Histopathological examination of vital organs of the rats were taken for gross findings, compared to controls. Distilled water aided as a control in all the tests. Results: There was no significant difference (p > 0.05) observed in the relative organs weight, body weight, hematological, biochemical parameters, and gross abnormalities when compared to the control.
