Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic illness with multiple etiologies. Extracts of medicinal plants are used in the treatment of diabetes. Studies on the properties and efficacy of these medicinal plants are of great significance in the treatment of diabetes. In this research work preliminary screening of phytochemical constitutents, antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal activities in the methanolic leaf extract of Couroupita guianesis was undertaken. The phytochemical constituent reported in this study were alkaloids, saponin, flavonoids, phenol, tannin and terpenoids.  The biological activities of the methanolic extract of leaves of C.guianesis indicated its antioxidant activity. The extracts in the present experiment possessed free radical scavenging activity and inhibitory activity against α-amylase and α-glucosidase. These properties are suggestive of the therapeutic potentials of the methanolic extract of leaves of C.guianesis, which could be exploited in the management of post prandial hyperglycemia in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Keywords: C.guianesis, methanolic extract, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal
