Background: The present study ascertained the capacities of crude aqueous and ethanolic leaf extracts of Acanthus montanus (ACMO), Asystasia gangetica (ASGA), Emilia coccinea (EMCO), and Hibiscus rosasinensis (HIRO), as well as their combinatorial formulations to ameliorate hyperglycemia in Type I diabetic rats. Materials and Methods: Hyperglycemia was induced by single intraperitoneal injection of alloxan monohydrate in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) solution (pH = 7.4) dosage = 120 mg/kg; bw…

Comparative Glycaemic Indices of a Four Herbal Combinatorial Formulation Administered On Wistar Rats.
TLDR
The herbs could be useful in the dietary management of diabetes as they could help regulate blood glucose level when consumed with normal meals and could also be incorporated into meals to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes or reverse same in its early stages.

Medicinal plants utilized in Thai Traditional Medicine for diabetes treatment: Ethnobotanical surveys, scientific evidence and phytochemicals.
TLDR
The most extensive survey dealing with the ethnomedicinal knowledge of Thai medicinal plants utilized on diabetes management is delivered, and it is certain that the current review will spark further research on Thai plants for the development of new standardized phytomedicines through drug discovery programmes.

Hypoglycemic properties of ethanolic extracts of Gongronema latifolium, Aloe perryi, Viscum album and Allium sativum administered to alloxan-induced diabetic albino rats (Rattus norvegicus)
TLDR
The four plant extracts used in the present study exhibited approximately the same capacity to act as hypoglycemic agents in the treated rats and correlate with the therapeutic capacity of the standard drug, glimepiride.
Comparative Proximate Composition and Hypoglycemic Properties of Three Medicinal Plants (Verononia amygdalina, Azadirachta indica and Moringa oleifera).
TLDR
Comparative proximate composition of V. amygdalina, A. indica and M. oleifera with corresponding capacity of the three leaf extracts to reduce FBG appears to suggest that biomolecules responsible for promoting FBG lowering effects are for the most part the TCC and CPC elements.
Hypoglycemic activity of leaves of Acanthus montanus T.Anderson (Acanthaceae) in rats
TLDR
The methanolic extract of Acanthus montanus T.A possesses a hypoglycemic effect and a dose dependent glucose reduction was seen with increasing doses of the extract till the 6 h time after treatment.
Comparative Hypoglycemic Property of Aqueous and Ethanolic Extracts of Viscum album (Mistletoe) and Their Effects on Body and Organ Weights of Diabetic Rats (Rattus norvegicus).
TLDR
The present study sought to determine, on comparative basis, the capacities of aqueous and ethanolic leaf extracts of Viscum album to ameliorate hyperglycemia and their effects on the body and visceral organ weights of experimental animals.
Antihyperglycemic effect of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Gongronema latifolium leaves on glucose and glycogen metabolism in livers of normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
TLDR
The data show that the ethanolic extract from G. latifolium leaves has antihyperglycemic potency, which is thought to be mediated through the activation of HK, PFK, G6PDH and inhibition of GK in the liver.

TLDR
Results of the present study showed that Bersama engleriana extracts and especially its methanolic extract possess antidiabetogenic properties and beneficial effects on diabetic hyperlipidemia.
