Abstract

Hypoglycaemic activity of cumin seed and bitter gourd was investigated in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. When consumed as a single oral dose (1 g/kg body wt.), cumin did not exert any beneficial hypoglycaemic effect. Similarly, consumption of fresh juice of the bitter gourd as a single oral dose (equivalent to 6.5 g fresh fruit/kg body wt.) did not exert any beneficial hypoglycaemic activity in experimental rats.
