Hypoglycaemic activity of Albizzia stipulata, Albizzia moluccana and Cassia fistula leguminous seed diets on Normal young rats
KN Singh, UR Bharadwaj
Wild leguminous seeds of Albizria stipulata, Albizzia moluccana and Cassia fistula were investigated for their hypo-glycaemic activity. They were found to have marked hypoglycaemic activity on normal albino rats but not on alloxan produced diabetic albino rats. The hypoglycaemic effect is probably due to direct or indirect stimulation of (-cells of islets of langerhans to secrete more insulin as to produce hypoglycaemia in normal young albino rats.
