Juniperus communis (Cuppraseae), a coniferous plant widely used as traditional medicine was evaluated for the antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic activity on Streptozotocin(STZ)-nicotinamide induced diabetic rats. The methanolic extract of Juniperus communis (MEJC) (100mg/kg, 200mg/kg, b.w) was administered orally in diabetic group except the standard group (Glibenclamide 10mg/kg, b.w) and the fasting blood glucose levels along with the different biochemical parameters were estimated on 21 st… 
BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF AN HYDROETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF SMALLANTHUS SONCHIFOLIUS LEAVES ON THE METABOLIC CHANGES IN DIABETIC RATS
TLDR
The treatment with the extract of Smallanthus sonchifolius leaves reduced glycemia in diabetic animals, restored the activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and AST, decreased the glycogen content of the liver and skeletal muscle, and decreased glucose release in the perfused liver.
Neuroprotective Effect of Juniperus communis on Chlorpromazine Induced Parkinson Disease in Animal Model
TLDR
The present study showed the neuroprotective effect of MEJC against CPZ induced Parkinson’s disease-like symptoms or anti-Parkinson's activity.
Identification and Characterization of Amentoflavone from Six Species of Juniperus Against H2O2 Induced Oxidative Damage in Human Erythrocytes and Leucocytes
TLDR
It is concluded that isolated fractions of AF from Juniperus species (among six species), has a potential source of natural antioxidants for treatment and prevention of diseases in which oxidative stress takes place.
A Review on Botanical, Phytochemical, and Pharmacological Characteristics of Iranian Junipers (Juniperus spp.)
TLDR
The importance of Iranian junipers is described from different points of view including the phytochemistry and therapeutical values to better understand their health-giving properties.
Juniper communis L. Essential Oils from Western Romanian Carpathians: Bio-Structure and Effective Antibacterial Activity
TLDR
A considerably higher antibacterial effectiveness was detected for Gram-positives, with peak reduction of Staphylococcus aureus, recommending the Romanian essential oil as a beneficial antibacterial resource.
Seasonal variations of essential oil content and composition in male and female plants of Juniperus communis L. ssp. hemisphaerica growing wild in Iran
TLDR
In the present experiment, the variations chemical composition of essential oil were mainly due to the differences in type of the foliage (extracted from male or female plant) and harvest season.
INFLUENCE OF GARLIC OIL ON ANTI DIABETIC ACTIVITY OF GLICLAZIDE IN DIABETIC RATS
TLDR
The present study suggests that during the simultaneous administration of gliclazide and garlic oil the dose and frequency of treatment has to be readjusted accordingly in order to avoid severe hypoglycaemic complication due to the drug-drug interactions.

Antidiabetic and renoprotective effects of the chloroform extract of Terminalia chebula Retz. seeds in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
The results indicate a prolonged action in reduction of blood glucose by T. chebula and is probably mediated through enhanced secretion of insulin from the β-cells of Langerhans or through extra pancreatic mechanism.
ANTI-DIABETIC AND ANTI-ARTHRITIC POTENTIAL OF GLYCOSMIS PENTAPHYLLA STEM BARK IN FCA INDUCED ARTHRITIS AND STREPTOZOTOCIN INDUCED DIABETIC RATS
TLDR
There is a significant improvement of the haematological parameters like RBC count, Hb level and the ESR to a near normal level indicating the significant recovery from the anaemic condition and arthritic progress thus justifying its significant role in arthrite conditions.
