Diabetes mellitus and associated co-morbidities i ncluding cardiovascular disease (CVD) and obesity are leading causes of mortality. In developing countries, where the per capita income is low, it is necessary to seek affordable alternative therapies. This study investigated 19 different com monly used Cameroonian spices for their polyphenol content, as well as their in v itro antioxidant, anti-amylase and anti-lipase activities. Results indicated that the aqueous extracts of Aframomum… 
PANCREATIC LIPASE AND α-AMYLASE INHIBITORY POTENTIAL OF MANGOSTEEN (GARCINIA MANGOSTANA LINN.) PERICARP EXTRACT
TLDR
In vitro, confirmed that the mangosteen pericarp extract has the phytochemical bioactive content that possesses anti-obesity potential through pancreatic lipase and α-amylase inhibitory activity.
AMYLASE INHIBITION AND FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING ACTIVITIES OF WHITE TURMERIC EXTRACT AND FRACTIONS [Penghambatan Enzim Amilase dan Penangkapan Radikal Bebas
Diabetes is the most common endocrinal disorder characterized by hyperglycemia and long -term complications. Recently, the development of antidiabetic drugs have focused on natural products with
In vitro Antioxidant and Anti-obesity Activities of Freeze-dried Canarium sp., Averrhoa bilimbi L. and Malus domestica
BACKGROUND: The number of obesity cases is still increasing worldwide and has reached an epidemic scale. Plants are known to have a protection role in the development of obesity, however their
Characterization of ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of Commiphora myrrha and evaluating in vitro anti-diabetic and anti-obesity activities
Diabetes mellitus is a clinical syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia. Reduction of gastrointestinal glucose absorption through the inhibition of carbohydrate digesting enzymes is one of in-vitro
PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS & IN-VITRO ANTI OBESITY ACTIVITY OF DIFFERENT FRACTIONS OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF FAGONIA CRETICA L.

Antidiabetic Screening of Phenolic-rich Extracts of Selected Medicinal Spices
Medicinal spices are used by herbal practitioners as condiments in decoctions for management of diabetes and its associated complications. The study assessed and compared the potentials of
Inhibition of key enzymes linked to type 2 diabetes by compounds isolated from Aframomum melegueta fruit
TLDR
The data of this study suggest that the 6-gingerol (3) and oleanolic acid (4) showed higher α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibitory action and therefore could be responsible for the antidiabetic activity of A. melegueta fruit.
Phenolic profile, antioxidant and enzyme inhibitory activities of underutilized spices from Central Africa
TLDR
Positive and high correlations existed between the antioxidant activity of extracts obtained with different methods and their corresponding phenolic content, and these spices could be utilized as natural antioxidant sources for the management oxidative stress, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism related diseases.

Identification of Anti-α-Amylase Components from Olive Leaf Extracts
TLDR
Both luteolin and oleanolic acid have an inhibitory effect on postprandial blood glucose increase in diabetic rats, and thus they may be a useful food supplement for the prevention of diabetes.
PHENOLIC CONTENT, ANTI-OXIDATIVE, ANTI-α-AMYLASE AND ANTI-α-GLUCOSIDASE ACTIVITIES OF SOLANUM DIPHYLLUM L.
Total phenolic content, anti-oxidative, anti-α-amylase and anti-α-glucosidase activities in the powder extracts of fruits, leaves, roots and stems of Solanum diphyllum were determined. Leaf extract
Inhibitory effects of rosmarinic acid extracts on porcine pancreatic amylase in vitro.
TLDR
In vitro experiments showed that the amylase activity was inhibited in the presence of herbal extracts containing rosmarinic acid and purified RA, suggesting that other phenolic compounds or phenolic synergies may contribute to additional amyl enzyme inhibitory activity.
Inhibition of Alpha-glucosidase and Amylase by Luteolin, a Flavonoid
TLDR
Luteolin inhibited alpha-glucosidase by 36% at the concentration of 0.5 mg/ml and was stronger than acarbose, the most widely prescribed drug, in inhibitory potency, suggesting that it has the possibility to effectively suppress postprandial hyperglycemia in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.
Inhibitory effects of plant phenols on the activity of selected enzymes.
TLDR
In vitro experiments showed that the enzymatic activity of the derivatives of selected enzymes was adversely affected, and enzyme inhibition correlates well with the blocking of the mentioned amino acid side chains.
Interactions between flavonoids and proteins: effect on the total antioxidant capacity.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the matrix influences the efficacy of an antioxidant, and components in green and black tea, which show the highest masking in combination with beta-casein, are epigallocatechin gallate and gallic acid.
Plant polyphenols: are they the new magic bullet?
TLDR
Until more is known about the activity and metabolic fate of polyphenols in the body, it would be better for the consumer to increase fruit and vegetable intake, and to be wary of claims that these compounds are a panacea for good health.
Quantitative spectrophotometric assay for staphylococcal lipase
TLDR
A specific spectrophotometric assay is reported for the quantitative determination of lipase activity in Staphylococcus aureus based on the rate of clearance of a tributyrin emulsion, and it can detect as little as 1.0 micrograms of purified Pseudomonas lipase per ml.
The problems of using one-dimensional methods to evaluate multifunctional food and biological antioxidants
TLDR
There is a great need to standardise antioxidant testing to minimise the present chaos in the methodologies used to evaluate antioxidants.
