Effect of triterpenoids of Bouvardia terniflora on blood sugar levels of normal and alloxan diabetic mice.

Abstract

Hypoglycemic activity-guided fractionation together with chemical analysis led to the isolation of two triterpenes (ursolic acid and oleanolic acid) from the chloroform extract of the dried stem of B. terniflora. Identification was based on spectroscopic methods. The compounds lowered blood sugar levels in normal and alloxan-diabetic mice.
