Abstract:
Barleria noctiflora (Acanthaceae) is a folk medicine used to treat Diabetes. The present investigation deals with morphological and in-vitro anti diabetic study of ethanolic extracts of root and aerial parts of selected plants. The plant material was extracted using soxlet apparatus and ethanol as a solvent. In-vitro anti-diabetic activity was determined by inhibition of α-glucosidase and inhibition of α-amylase studies. The extract showed a significant level of anti-diabetic activity when compared with standards. The results of ethanolic extracts of Barleria noctiflora are in support of traditional uses of the species to reduce blood glucose levels. It is highly likely that long term treatment may achieve the desired results with diabetes mellitus patients.
