Diphenylamine has been isolated as one of the active antihyperglycemic agents of onion. It was identified by ir, uv, cmr, pmr, and mass spectra. It attained the highest percentage in mature onion bulbs; other onion organs contained diphenylamine in lower percentages. Green and black teas were found to contain relatively high percentages of diphenylamine, being higher in the former. Cooking was found to decrease the diphenylamine content. 
Hypoglycemic effects of Teucrium polium.
Results indicate that this extract of Teucrium polium caused significant reductions in blood glucose concentration 4 h after intravenous administration and 24 h after intraperitoneal administration, which could be due to enhancement of peripheral metabolism of glucose rather than an increase in insulin release.
