  1. Data are expressed as the means ± SD
  2. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 indicate between the young adult group and middle-aged group
  3. #p < 0.05 and ##p < 0.01 indicate between the middle aged group and elderly group
  4. $p < 0.05 and $$p < 0.01 indicate between the young adult group and elderly group
