Abstracts

 

Background: Study was aimed to evaluate the antidiabetic activity of Murraya koenigii, a traditional medicinal plant (Curry leaf) in normoglycemic and alloxan-induced diabetes rabbits.
Methods: Antidiabetic activity of aqueous extract of M. koenigii in 100, 200 300 mg/k doses was determined by estimating blood glucose before and at 1, 2, 4, 8, 24, and 72 hours post treatment intervals in treated rabbits.
Results: Aqueous extract of Murraya koenigii showed a dose dependent antidiabetic activity with maximum effect established at 300 mg/kg. The extract also exhibited a significant (p<0.05) dose- dependent hypoglycemic effect on normal and alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits.
Conclusion: Murraya koenigii causes a reduction in blood glucose. This hypoglycemic property supports-its usein folkloric medicine as an antidiabetic agent and thus suggests a place for it in nutritional therapy in the management of diabetes mellitus and thus as an oral hypoglycaemic agent.

 

Keywords :
