Abstract

Author(s): T. Sivakumar, K. Kannan and R. Manavalan

The present investigation explores the blood glucose lowering potential of Commiphora Caudata (Wight & Arn) Engl extracts (ethyl acetate and methanol) in alloxan induced diabetic rats. Both the extracts caused highly significant reduction of (**P < 0.001) blood glucose level, when compared with diabetic control as well as with glibenclamide at the end of 7th and 14th consecutive days by oral intubations. They also significantly reduced the TGL, HDL, VLDL, LDL and total cholesterol levels.
