Abstract

Scientific evidence for the effects of Terminalia arjuna on diabetes mellitus is lacking. This study investigated the anti-diabetic efficacy and mode of action of the bark extract of Terminalia arjuna. Insulin-release from BRIN-BD11 cells was assessed in the absence or presence of T. arjuna extracts and modulators of insulin-secretion. Insulin concentration and intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]i) were measured by radioimmunoassay and FLEXstationTM respectively. Adipocyte glucose-uptake with 3T3-L1 fibroblasts, starch digestion with α–amylase and protein glycation were assessed in vitro. Terminalia arjuna extract stimulated insulin-release alone (p
