Several herbs with holding the antidiabetic properties are under scrutiny, by several researchers over the few decades were increasingly profound. Animals on these herbal extract studies confirmed that presence of specific components responsible for antidiabetic activity like flavonoids and polyphenolic components, which in turn also have the antioxidant activity, may be beneficial for the mankind in the management of diabetes. And hence only, in this current study, an investigation has been done on the Embelia ribes seeds for the presence of antidiabetic activity.
