Aqueous extract of Indian Kino at both doses, i.e., 100 and 200 mg/kg, decreased the fasting and postprandial blood glucose in type 2 diabetic rats. The 200 mg/kg had more pronounced effect on postprandial hyperglycemia. The drug also improved the body weight of diabetic animals. Cytokine TNF-? was found to be elevated in untreated diabetic rats due to chronic systemic inflammation. The aqueous extract at both doses significantly (P < 0.001) decreased the elevated TNF-? level in type 2 diabetic rats.

Glucose levels in rats with hyperglycemia induced by streptozotocin were determined after i.p. administration of marsupsin (1), pterosupin (2), and pterostilbene (3), three important phenolic constituents of the heartwood of Indian Kino. Marsupsin and pterostilbene significantly lowered the blood glucose level of hyperglycemic rats, and the effect was comparable to that of 1,1-dimethylbiguanide (metformin).

In methanol extract-treated animals, the toxic effect of CCl4 was controlled significantly by restoration of the levels of serum bilirubin, protein and enzymes as compared to the normal and the standard drug silymarin-treated groups. Histology of the liver sections of the animals treated with the extracts showed the presence of normal hepatic cords, absence of necrosis and fatty infiltration, which further evidenced the hepatoprotective activity. So in conclusion methanol extract of the stem bark of P. marsupium possesses significant hepatoprotective activity.

Long-term complications are frequently encountered in diabetes mellitus and are difficult to treat. This study was undertaken to assess the effect of three antidiabetic plants on the development of cataract in rats. An aqueous extract of Pterocarpus marsupium (1 g /kg /day),Ocimum sanctum     (200 mg/ kg /day) and alcoholic extract of Trigonella foenum-graecum   (2 g kg day) were given to alloxan (120 mg/ kg) diabetic rats until the development of cataract. Serum glucose and body weight were monitored at regular intervals while cataract was examined through naked eye as well as slit lamp at 75, 100 and 115 days after alloxan administration. Administration of all the three plant extracts exerted a favorable effect on body weight and blood glucose, the effects were best with Pterocarpus Marsupium (Indian Kino) followed by  Ocimum Sanctum & Trigonella foenum-graecum. On the course of cataract development,  Pterocarpus marsupium followed by Trigonella foenum-graecum exerted anti-cataract effect evident from decreased opacity index while Ocimum sanctum failed to produce any anti-cataract effect in spite of significant antihyperglycemic activity.

      Although vijaysar herb is one of the reputed herb possessing “Lekhan” properties, kindly note that merely using any herb for weightloss without exercise and diet control cannot work. There are lot of research done on its effectiveness on diabetes. Therefore, vijaysar is widely used for blood sugar management.
