PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF DIFFERENT LEAF EXTRACTS FROM LOTUS (NELUMBO NUCIFERA GAERTN.) IN STREPTOZOTOCIN INDUCED MICE
Keywords:Lotus, Diabetes mellitus, Antidiabetic, Streptozotocin, Mice
Â Objective: The present study is to evaluate the antidiabetic activity of various extract of Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) leaf using hexane, ethyl acetate, and ethanol organic solvent.
Methods: Standard phytochemical screening method and streptozotocin induced diabetic mice.
Result: The phytochemical screening showed only ethyl acetate of lotus leaf extract contains the flavonoids. The ethyl acetate lotus leaf extract (dose level 150 mg/kg) showed a significant reduction of the blood glucose.
Conclusion: The ethyl acetate extract of lotus leaf (N. nucifera Gaertn.) had the hypoglycemic effect on diabetic induced mice.
