Aqueous leaf extract of L. speciosa (banaba) effectively decreased the blood glucose in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice after 15th day of banaba exposure. Further, banaba leaf extract have the potential to inhibit lipid peroxidation and effectively intercept/neutralize reactive oxygen species such as super oxide, H2O2 and NO based free radicals. The aqueous banaba leaf extract (150 mg/kg bodyweight) duly reduced STZ generated reactive intermediates and radical species helping to regulate…

Radical Scavenging Activities of Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. Petal Extracts and its hepato-protection in CCl4-intoxicated mice
In vitro cytotoxicity tests have shown that the flower extract did not affect growth and survivability of the cell lines, and left beyond doubt that a flower of L. speciosa is a reservoir of antioxidant and hepatoprotective agents capable of reversing the damage inflicted by CCl4-intoxication.
Inhibitory Actions of Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. Aqueous and Ethanolic Leaf Extracts against Carbohydrate-digesting Enzymes
Context: The leaves of Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. (banaba) have been consumed traditionally in several Southeast Asian countries for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The plasma glucose
Lagerstroemia Speciosa (L.) Pers Leaf Extract Attenuates Lung Tumorigenesis via Alleviating Oxidative Stress, Inflammation and Apoptosis
The results revealed that LLE possesses cytotoxic activity against the A549 cell line, which positively confirm the potent antitumor effect of L. speciosa leaves against lung tumorigenesis.
Evaluation of hypoglycemic effect of Lagerstroemia speciosa (Banaba) Leaf extract in Alloxan induced diabetic rabbits
It is suggested that Banaba leaf extract has favorable effects in protecting the Alloxan induced hyperglycemia in diabetic rabbits.

The current review discussed the chemical constituents, pharmacological and therapeutic effects of Lagerstroemia speciosa.
Ethanolic Extract of Lagerstroemia Speciosa (L.) Pers., Induces Apoptosis and Cell Cycle Arrest in HepG2 Cells
It is suggested that EBLE induces G1-phase of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in HepG2 cells, and may serve as a therapeutic agent against hepatocellular carcinoma.
Phytochemical and Toxicity Evaluation of Traditional Herb: Lagerstroemia speciosa L. (Banaba) by MCF-7 Cell Line and Brine Shrimp Lethality Bioassay
The present findings revealed the non-cytotoxic nature of L. speciosa leaves extract on both MTT-assay and brine shrimp lethality bioassay.
Influence of fluoride on streptozotocin induced diabetic nephrotoxicity in mice: Protective role of Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) & banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) on mitochondrial oxidative stress
High fluoride uptake was found to be diabetogenic and further aggravated the renal oxidative damage and thereby the toxicity in mice with STZ induced diabetes mice, which significantly normalized the impaired biochemical variables in kidney tissues of fluoride toxicated diabetic mice.
Hepatoprotective Effect of Bioactive Fraction of Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. Bark Against Monosodium Glutamate-Induced Liver Toxicity
Evaluating the hepatoprotective and antioxidant potential of L. speciosa bark extract (LSE) in the prevention of hepatotoxicity from oxidative damage induced with MSG administration in Sprague Dawley rats found it to be rich in phenolics and flavonoid content along with potent hepatiprotective activity.


Antidiabetic Activity of Cassia auriculata Flowers: Effect on Lipid Peroxidation in Streptozotocin Diabetes Rats
This study shows that Cassia auriculata flower extract (CFEt) has hypoglycemic action and the decrease in lipid peroxides and increase in reduced glutathione (GSH), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathion peroxidase (GPx) and glutATHione S -transferase (GST) clearly show the antioxidant properties of CFEt.
Protective Effect of Hesperidin, a Citrus Bioflavonoid, on Diabetes-Induced Brain Damage in Rats
Hemperidin efficiently, an attenuating effect on the progression of hyperglycemia a nd al so on some di abetes-induced complications in rat b rain is suggested.
Ellagitannins from Lagerstroemia speciosa as activators of glucose transport in fat cells.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the aqueous acetone extract of the leaves afforded three active ellagitannins, lagerstroemin, flosin B and reginin A, which could be responsible for lowering the blood glucose level.
Corosolic acid induces GLUT4 translocation in genetically type 2 diabetic mice.
Results suggest that the hypoglycemic effect of CA is derived, at least in part, from an increase in GLUT4 translocation in muscle, which may mean that CA has beneficial effects on hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes.
Screening of plant constituents for effect on glucose transport activity in Ehrlich ascites tumour cells.
A simple in vitro bioassay method can be used as a first screening for anti-diabetic activity and colosolic acid was shown to be a glucose transport activator.
Alterations in Free Radical Tissue-Defense Mechanisms in Streptozocin-Induced Diabetes in Rat: Effects of Insulin Treatment
The results suggest the presence of increased oxidative stress in uncontrolled diabetes as manifested by the marked alterations in tissue antioxidant enzyme activities, the magnitude of which increased with the degree of emaciation.
Lipid peroxidation and activity of antioxidant enzymes in diabetic rats
The findings suggest that oxidative stress occurs in diabetic state and that oxidative damage to tissues may be a contributory factor in complications associated with diabetes.
