Mature green plantains bought at Oja-Oba in Akure were roasted into a local meal called ‘boli’ while another portion was boiled in water. Each of the samples was sun dried and milled into flour. The aqueous extracts of roasted and boiled were prepared (10g/100mL). The study was based on inhibition of α-amylase, α-glucosidase and angiotensin 1 converting enzyme (ACE). The antioxidant activities of the plantain extracts to reduce Fe 3+ to Fe 2+ and to bind to iron (II) ions were evaluated. The…

Antioxidative and antidiabetic effects of some African medicinal plants.
TLDR
The data of the in vivo study showed that oral intervention of the fractions for 4 weeks demonstrated potent anti-diabetic actions via improving body weight gain, reducing feed and fluid intake and hyperglycemia, improving glucose tolerance ability, insulin sensitivity, amelioration of pancreatic β-cell histology and β- cell functions, improving dyslipidemia in a T2D rat model.
In vitro antioxidants and haematological and nephroprotective effects of biscuits produced from three medicinal flour blends fed to high-fat diet/streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats
This study investigated the in vitro antioxidants and haematological and nephroprotective effects of biscuits produced from three medicinal flour blends fed to high-fat diet/streptozotocin
PHARMACOGNOSTIC EVALUATION OF MUSA PARADISIACA L. BRACT, FLOWER, TRACHEA AND TRACHEAL FLUID
TLDR
Information obtained from these studies will assist for sample identification, standardization for quality, purity, efficacy, pharmacological, therapeutic evaluation and also towards the development of plant monograph as food cum drug agent.
Evaluation of Hepatic activity of various morphological parts of Musa paradisiaca L.
TLDR
Results of the experiment showed that there is significant diversity between the groups that were treated with CCl4, silymarin and different doses of different morphological parts of plant as compared to control group.
Proximate Composition and Consumption Pattern of Plantain and Cooking-Banana
TLDR
This study buttresses the nutritional value of locally available plantain and cooking-banana varieties at both ripe and unripe stages and there is need for intensified nutrition education to improve the poor preference for Cooking-bananas.

Antioxidant activity of the main phenolic compounds isolated from hot pepper fruit (Capsicum annuum L).
TLDR
A high correlation was found between the content of these compounds and the antioxidant activity of both fractions and the highest antioxidant activity in the beta-carotene-linoleic acid system was found for trans-p-sinapoyl-beta-d-glucopyranoside, which was lower than the activity of free sinapic acid.
Glycemic indices of processed unripe plantain (Musa paradisiaca) meals
TLDR
The processed plantain meal elicit low postprandial rise of blood glucose and can be recommended for use in the diet of diabetic Nigerians.
Antioxidant activity of Osbeckia aspera
TLDR
The plant extract possessed some prooxidant activity from the effect on bleomycin‐induced DNA damage, but this was less than that shown by comparable concentrations of (+)‐catechin or silymarin.
Antioxidant properties of some commonly consumed and underutilized tropical legumes
The antioxidant properties of some commonly consumed [cowpea (Vigna unguiculata)] and underutilized [pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan) and African yam bean (Sphenostylis sternocarpa)] legumes were assessed
Hypoglycemic effect of methanolic extract of Musa paradisiaca (Musaceae) green fruits in normal and diabetic mice.
TLDR
The findings of this experimental animal study indicate that MEMP possesses hypoglycemic activity, and thus lends credence to the suggested folkloric use of the plant in the management and/or control of adult-onset, type-2 diabetic mellitus among the Yoruba-speaking people of South-Western Nigeria.
Inhibitory effect of aqueous extract from the gall of Rhus chinensis on alpha-glucosidase activity and postprandial blood glucose.
Antioxidant activity of processed table beets (Beta vulgaris var, conditiva) and green beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.).
TLDR
Analysis of a root vegetable and a legume suggest that the effects of thermal processing vary with the respective produce crop type, and reinforces the concept that optimal health benefits may be achieved when a wide variety of plant foods and preparation methods are incorporated into the diet.
