Lippia javanica is widely distributed throughout Kenya where it is used extensively in traditional herbal preparations. An infusion of the leaves is commonly used as a decongestant for colds and coughs including diabetes, however, its efficacy profiles have not been scientifically evaluated. The aim of this study was to determine the in vivo antidiabetic activity of aqueous leaf extracts of this plant in white male alloxan-induced albino mice. The antidiabetic activity of the aqueous leaf…

Hypoglycemic Effect of Ocimum Lamiifolium in Alloxan Induced Diabetic Mice
TLDR
In this study, the in vivo hypoglycemic activity of aqueous leaf extracts of this plant was determined in male swiss white albino mice and could be associated with the phytochemicals present in this plant extract.
In Vivo Hypoglycemic Effect of Kigelia africana (Lam): Studies With Alloxan-Induced Diabetic Mice
TLDR
The data appear to support the hypoglycemic effects of K africana validating its folkloric usage, and could be attributed to the observed phytochemicals and trace elements, which have been associated with exhibiting antidiabetic properties.
Antidiabetic Activity of Aqueous Extract of Sonchus asper Used As Anti-Hyperglycemic Herb in Kenya
TLDR
The results indicate that V. lasiopus is promising in development of phytomedicine for the management of diabetes mellitus.
Hypoglycemic Effect of Aqueous and Ethyl Acetate Leaf Extract of Maytenus putterkloides in Alloxan Induced Diabetic Mice
TLDR
The aqueous and ethyl acetate leaf extract of this plant showed hypoglycemic activity at dose levels of 50, 100, 200, 300 mg/kg body weight in a dose independent manner via both routes and could be associated with the phytochemicals present in this plant extract.
Antihyperglycemic effect and phytochemical investigation of Rubia cordifolia (Indian Madder) leaves extract
Abstract Medicinal plants are used as an important source of medicines in pharmaceutical industry. Rubia cordifolia is widely used to cure diabetes mellitus. Present study was aimed to investigate
In vivo antidiabetic activity of aqueous and ethyl acetate leaf extract of Senna singuena (Delile) in alloxan induced diabetic mice
TLDR
The generated data supports the folkloric claims associating S. singuena with hypoglycemic effects, however, there is need for further studies on this plant to investigate the mechanism of its activity and determine its safety profiles in order to explore possibilities of developing a new antidiabetic drug.
Anti-diabetic Effect of the Methanolic Leaf Extract of Axonopus compressus (P. Beauv) in Alloxan Induced Diabetic Rats
TLDR
It is obvious from the above findings that Axonopus compressus deserves further investigations into the active ingredients and structural allucidation to validate the anti-diabetic property it possess.
Antidiabetic effect of partitioned methanol extract of Boswellia dalzielii (Frankincense tree) in rats
TLDR
The leaf of Boswellia dalzielii possesses potent antidiabetic activity which increases as the extract is purified, and may likely be due to the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins and terpenoids.
Phytochemical and zootechnical studies of Physalis peruviana L. leaves exposured to streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
This is a phytochemical and zootechnical study on Physalis peruviana leaves in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. This was part of a scientific development program of plant resources used in
Antidiabetic activity and safety of piper capense, berberis holstii, sonchus asper, vernonia lasiopus and galinsoga parviflora in alloxan-induced diabetic albino mice
TLDR
Toxicity of the aqueous plant extracts to normal mice was studied by orally and intraperitoneally administering them with 450, 670 and 1000 mg/kg body weight daily for 28 days and kept under close observation and recommended use of safe plants with antidiabetic activity as herbal remedies.
