  author={Akash Gajanan Prabhune and Manu Sharma and Biwesh Ojha},
  journal={International Journal of Herbal Medicine},
The objective of this review is to evaluate the potential of Abelmoschus esculentus as a dietary agent in treatment of diabetes induced hyperglycemia. A comprehensive search of animal studies, human studies, and in-vitro assays published in scientific databases like Medline, Hub med, and printed manual scripts on herbal medicines in alternative medicine. Animal studies and in-vitro studies conducted have proved that Abelmoschus esculentus in form of Seeds, Peal, water soluble extracts and…

Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench Pod Extract Revealed Antagonistic Effect against the Synergistic Antidiabetic Activity of Metformin and Acarbose upon Concomitant Administration in Glucose-Induced Hyperglycemic Mice

It is suggested that taking AEE concurrently with MET and ACR would reduce the effectiveness of antidiabetic drugs; thereby, concomitant administration of these antidi diabetic agents is not recommended.

Anti-diabetic effects of okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] fruits in alloxan-induced diabetic rats

The whole fruits of Abelmoschus esculentus possess noteworthy antidiabetic properties and significantly reversed diabetes induced dyslipidemia and liver damage in rats.

Superiority of Purple Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) to Green Okra in Insulin Resistance and Pancreatic β Cell Improvement in Diabetic Rats.

Purple okra is superior to green okra in terms of improving the diabetic markers of rats, and this work has shown that purple okra contains more quercetin than greenOkra.

Effect of Abelmoschus esculentus (okra)-based diet on streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus in adult Wistar rats

Okra-based diet lowers hyperglycaemia as well as regenerate/repair endocrine β-cells and exocrine tissues of the pancreas damage by streptozotocin, but rats fed okra diet was able to regenerate endocrineβ cells.

Among the main effects attributed to okra, its antidiabetic property is the focus and updated examples of current and innovative directions in an integrated and multidisciplinary approach are discussed, with particular attention to chemometrics.

[Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis of Secondary Metabolites in Ethanol Extract of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) Fruit with UV-Vis Spectrophotometry Method]

This study aims to determine the content of secondary metabolites and the levels of total secondary metabolites in ethanol extract of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) fruit with UV-Vis

Okra Infusion Water Improving Stress Oxidative and Inflammatory Markers on Hyperglycemic Rats

OIW able to improve glucose, HbA1C, SOD, and CRP level on hyperglycemic rats is investigated.



Evaluation of Abelmoschus moschatus extracts for antioxidant, free radical scavenging, antimicrobial and antiproliferative activities using in vitro assays

The seed and leaf extracts of A. moschatus possess significant antioxidant activity and could serve as free radical inhibitors or scavenger, or substitute, probably as primary antioxidants and be a good candidate for functional foods as well as pharmaceutics.

Antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic potential of Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench. in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats

The present study results, first time, support the antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic potential of A. esculentus peel and seed powder in diabetic rats.

Water-soluble Fraction of Abelmoschus esculentus L Interacts with Glucose and Metformin Hydrochloride and Alters Their Absorption Kinetics after Coadministration in Rats

The results of this study indicate that A. esculentus may improve glycemic control but should not be taken concurrently with metformin hydrochloride in controlling diabetes mellitus.

Beneficial effect of myricetin on renal functions in streptozotocin-induced diabetes

Data suggest that myricetin could be of therapeutic potential in diabetic nephropathy and improved altered renal functions and restored renal activities of GPx and XO in diabetic rats.

Extract of okra lowers blood glucose and serum lipids in high-fat diet-induced obese C57BL/6 mice.

Role of Mediterranean diet, tropical vegetables rich in antioxidants, and sunlight exposure in blindness, cataract and glaucoma among African type 2 diabetics.

Regular intake of Mediterranean diet, Brassica Rapa, beans, Abelmoschus, Musa acuminata reduced significantly the risk of blindness, cataract and glaucoma among type 2 diabetes mellitus in Africa.

Flavonoid intake and risk of chronic diseases.

The risk of some chronic diseases may be lower at higher dietary flavonoid intakes, and a trend toward a reduction in risk of type 2 diabetes was associated with higher quercetin intakes.
