The ethanolic extract of the leaves and fruits of Ficus religiosa Linn. was evaluated for its antidiabetic activity in normal rats and alloxan induced diabetic rats. Fruit extracts were found to have no effect on normal rats while they were effective in lowering the elevated blood glucose level in experimental diabetic rats. Fruit extract in a dose of 250 mg/kg body weight was found to be more effective than 100 mg/kg body weight.
