In present study, antihyperglycemic potential of ethanolic extract of Cedrus deodara wood was estimated at two different doses of 50 and 100 mg ̸ Kg body weight in alloxan induced hyperglycemic rats. The effect of ethanolic extract of Cedrus deodara was estimated on 0 day, 5th day, 10th day and 14th day. A marked decrease in the blood sugar level (P < 0.01) was observed in hyperglycemic rats upon Cedrus deodara treatment. Preliminary qualitative chemical investigation shows the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, tannins & phenolic compounds, triterpenoids, fixed oils, fats, and flavanoids. The results suggest that ethanolic extract of Cedrus deodara has promising antihyperglycemic action in alloxan induced rats.
