This study was conducted to determine the effect of stevioside (SVS) on glucose metabolism. The experiments were performed in male Wistar rats treated with SVS either by intravenous infusion or feeding. SVS infusion (150 mg/mL) was carried out in doses of 0.67, 1.00, and 1.33 mL.kg-1 body weight.h-1. The plasma glucose level significantly increased both(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the lipid-lowering and antioxidative activities of Ocimum sanctum L. (OS) leaf extracts in liver and heart of rats fed with high-cholesterol (HC) diet for seven weeks. The results shows that OS suppressed the high levels of serum lipid profile and hepatic lipid content without significant effects on fecal lipid(More)
OBJECTIVE Nitric oxide (NO) has been proposed to play a significant role in renal function. In addition, NO production has been found to increase in diabetes mellitus. The present study aimed to clarify the mechanism responsible for NO action in renal function in rats with short (10 days) or prolonged periods (8 weeks) of diabetic induction. METHODS Male(More)
Ocimum sanctum (OS) has a lipid-lowering action in both normal and diabetic animals. Because OS leaves are rich in oil, the present study was conducted to explain the anti-hyperlipidemic and organ-protective effect of OS fixed oil in rats fed with a high fat (HF) diet. OS fixed oil was extracted by hexane and the fatty acids composition identified by GC-MS.(More)
The relationship between gastroduodenal motility and bile reflux was studied in normal rats and in rats subjected to hemorrhage and blood reinfusion. Bile secretion decreased from 5.3 +/- 0.4 to 4.1 +/- 0.5 microL/(min.100 g rat) (p less than 0.05) during the hypovolemic stress and recovered after blood reinfusion. Gastric bile salt content was low (0.1 +/-(More)
Ocimum sanctum L. (OS) leaves have been shown to exert diverse potential benefits in a variety of stress conditions. The present study was conducted to elucidate the effects of the fixed oil extracted from OS leaves on the blood glucose levels and serum lipid profile of streptozotocin‐induced diabetic rats. In addition, the anti‐oxidative activity of OS(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of aqueous extracts of Ocimum sanctum L. leaves on blood glucose, serum lipid profile and anti-oxidative activity to protect various risk organs in DM rats. Ocimum sanctum L. leaves were extracted using water, then the total phenolic content was determined. Three groups of male Wistar rats were used(More)
It has been reported that Ocimum sanctum L. (OS) leaves decrease serum lipid profile in normal and diabetic animals. No experimental evidences support the anti-hyperlipidemic and antioxidative actions against hypercholesterolemia. Moreover the identity of the specific chemical ingredients in OS leaves responsible for these pharmacological effects are(More)
