Pueraria tuberosa is a medicinal plant used in the Indian traditional system of medicine. Hypoglycemic
activity was studied in ethyl acetate extracts of the pueraria tuberosa tubers in healthy and alloxan
induced diabetic rats. The extract was obtained from dried tubers and intraperitoneally administered to
healthy rats. Results show that the ethyl acetate extract exhibited good hypoglycemic effect in this
experimental model also.
