Nutritional value of azalea pollen and its effect on the carbontetrachloride induced liver damage were investigated in this experiment. Azalea pollen was primary composed of 58.96% of carbohydrate, 21.86% crude protein, 2.26% fat, and 2.89% ash. 17 amino acids and 22 fatty acids were quantitatively analyzed, and the major component of them was lysine, and linolenic acid, respectively. After administration of pollen and carbontetrachloride concomitantly. serum ALT, AST, LDH activities and tissue lipid peroxidation decreased significantly, but serum total lipid and cholesterol levels did not changed.
