Bhaskar K. Gupta*, Mukul Tailang

Journal Title:World Journal of Pharmaceutical Research
Abstract


In the present review we have studied the role of herbal plants and their phytoconstituents in the treatment of diabetes. The routine path of treatment is oral hypoglycemic agent and insulin therapy which leads to many side effects. The natural products shall be considered as the best in primary health care because of their better acceptability, safety, efficacy, potency, cost effectiveness, and lesser side effects. Several herbal medicines and supplements have been studied as potential therapeutic agents in the management of diabetes and its related complications. Many polyherbal formulations are available in Indian markets which have been proved to be efficacious in treatment of diabetes. Only plants and plant metabolites (eg.epicaechin, barberine, diabecon etc.) have the capacity to protect and regenerate ?-cells. Thus we can say that phytoconstituents from such potential plants can be proposed to be a better source for Antidiabetic drugs.
