Oleanolic acid glycosides from several medicinal foodstuffs were found to show potent inhibitory activity on the increase of serum glucose levels in oral glucose-loaded rats. By examination of the structure-activity relationships, the 3-O-glucuronide moiety and the 28-carboxyl group in oleanolic acid glycosides were required to exert the hypoglycemic… CONTINUE READING
