Background: The present study was undertaken with an objective to observe effectiveness of oralÂ administration of cinnamon extract to hyperglycemic induced rats using alloxan. Male and femaleÂ Wistar Rats were injected with alloxan to induce hyperglycemia.
Methods: This is an experimentalÂ study to determine whether cinnamon has an ability to combat hyperglycemic rats. Blood glucose wasÂ estimated by GOD-PAP method using diagnostic kit supplied by Agappe diagnostics, Maharashtra.
Results: The present experimental study provides further evidence that oral administrationÂ of Cinnamon extract for 21 days produced a significant decrease in the blood glucose level in theÂ model of alloxan induced diabetes rats.
Conclusion: From this study, we can conclude that the oral
administration of Cinnamon extracts have beneficial effect on blood glucose levels. However furtherÂ pharmacological and biochemical investigations will clearly elucidate the mechanism of action andÂ helpful in projecting these plant extracts as a therapeutic target in diabetes research.
