  • AIM OF THE STUDY In recent years the use of medicinal plants has been growing worldwide and this is particularly true in Lebanon. In the present investigation we report the inhibitory activity against digestive enzymes related to diabetes and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) of extracts of nine plant species collected in Lebanon, where they have a traditional use against diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS In order to evaluate if the extraction procedure could influence the activity we decided… CONTINUE READING
