Evidence is provided that green tea has an antidiabetic effect on diabetes-induced modifications of the levels of several serum proteins, the first report demonstrating that a certain serum protein may be involved in the antihyperglycemic effect of green tea.

In an in vitro study, the LD50 values for H2O2‐induced cytotoxicity in BALB/c normal liver cells were significantly higher after kinsenoside pretreatment than after vehicle alone, further confirming that kinsenosides shows significant antihepatotoxic activity.
Eriobotrya japonica improves hyperlipidemia and reverses insulin resistance in high‐fat‐fed mice
The findings provide a nutritional basis for the use of loquat as a functional food factor that may have benefits for the prevention of hyperlipidemia and diabetes.
Cell Suspension Culture of Eriobotrya japonica Regulates the Diabetic and Hyperlipidemic Signs of High-Fat-Fed Mice
It is shown that TA exhibits hypolipidemic effect in HF-fed mice by decreasing gene expressions of fatty acid synthesis, including acyl-coenzyme A: diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) 2, which catalyzes the final step in the synthesis of triglycerides, and antidiabetic properties occurred as a result of decreased hepatic glucose production via phosphenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK).
Identification of dendrobium species used for herbal medicines based on ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer sequence.
It is clear that D. catenatum is one of the most important sources of Dendrobii Herba (5 out of 21 samples), and an ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 sequence database of 196 Dend Robium species was constructed, and the database was employed to identify 21 herbal samples.
