The fruits of edible hypoglycaemic plants of Momordica charantia, dried seeds of Syzigium cumini, seed oil of Aegle marmelos and dried fruit powder of Coccinia indica, dried powder of the roots and rhizomes of Curcuma longa and seeds of Trigonella foenumgraecum were tested on normoglycaemic as well as streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats for its antihyperglycaemic efficacy. The investigation confirms the traditional claim of antihyperglycaemic activity in these edible plants.
