In vitro Modulation of Pancreatic Insulin Secretion and Extra Pancreatic Insulin Action, Enzymatic Starch Digestion and Protein Glycation by Terminalia chebula Extracts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aim: Traditional plant treatments have been used throughout the world for the therapy of diabetes mellitus. Study Design: Using multiple in vitro models; this study was designed to investigate the efficacy and mode of action of Terminalia chebula Retz. (Combretaceae) used traditionally for treatment of diabetes. Place and Duration of Study: School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Ulster, 2001-2004. Results: T. chebula aqueous extract stimulated basal insulin output and potentiated glucose-stimulated insulin secretion concentration-dependently in the clonal pancreatic beta cell line, BRIN-BD11 (p
