Exploring the inhibitory activity of Tinospora cordifolia (heart-leaved moonseed) against diabetes symptoms

Researchers at Osmania University in India investigated anti-diabetic efficiency of the leaf extract of Tinospora cordifolia (heart-leaved moonseed), a plant used in Ayurveda and traditional folk medicine. They reported their findings in an article published in the International Journal of Green Pharmacy.

  • Cell Fuzion™ is an advanced antioxidant formula that protects cells against harmful free radicals and environmental toxins. It also supports healthy aging.Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that affects many people around the world, according to the World Health Organization.
  • Because of its prevalence, natural, non-toxic agents like plants that can treat diabetes with very few side effects are needed.
  • For their experiment, the researchers obtained the active fraction of T. cordifolia (AFTC) methanolic leaf extract and isolated the active compounds using chromatography.
  • They then characterized the phytochemicals using liquid chromatography and identified four active alkaloids, namely, magnoflorine, jatrorrhizine, palmatine and berberine.
  • The researchers tested the T. cordifolia extract and magnoflorine in rats with streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes. They specifically looked at the extract and compound’s ability to inhibit the activity of aldose reductase.
  • The researchers found that the extract and magnoflorine restored serum glucose to normal levels, just like the standard drug, metformin, did.
  • Both also remarkably prevented weight loss to a similar extent as metformin.
  • Additionally, treatment with either the extract or magnoflorine significantly inhibited aldose reductase activity.

Based on these findings, the researchers concluded that T. cordifolia extract and magnoflorine have immense anti-diabetic potential and can be developed into potent antidiabetic medications.
