Cassia auriculata and Cassia alata as potential antidiabetic agents

  • These plants are extensively used in many countries, but predominantly in Asia,  for treating diabetes

  • The plants have been shown to have antidiabetic activities in experimental animals but the mechanisms of action and active constituents were not known.

  • We have separated the various parts of the plants and extracted them with alcohol.

  • We have shown the possible mechanisms of action and identified the active ingredients
