Abstract

This study aimed to determine the blood sugar reduction effect of Brassica juncea seed extract, identified as a plant with potential anti-diabetic potential in Alloxan-induced (150 mg/kg body weight) male diabetic Sprague Dawley rats. After 14 days of treatment, the mean blood glucose levels of both treatment groups (LD & HD) were noticeably lower that the negative control group (NG). However, although feeding of the BJ seed extracts (450 mg/kg/dose) seemingly showed a trend that connotes an improvement in blood glucose levels, the numbers were not found to be statistically significant.
