Methanolic extract of “Ata-Ofa Polyherbal tea” (A-Polyherbal) was evaluated for hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects in alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Compared to the untreated diabetic rats, administration of methanolic extract of A-Polyherbal at 50mg/kg dose for 7 days caused a statistically significant (P < 0.05) percentage reduction in fasting blood glucose level (55.43±3.50%), significantly boosted the activities of superoxide dismutases and catalases, HDLcholesterol, packed cell volume and hemoglobin, and significantly (P < 0.05) reduced the levels of thiobarbituric reactive substances (TBARS), total cholesterol, total bilirubin, conjugated bilirubin, in alloxan-induced diabetic rats. These results strongly demonstrate that “Ata-Ofa Polyherbal tea” (A-Polyherbal) has strong potential in the alleviation and management of diabetes and related complications, including hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, development of micro and macro vascular diabetic complications arising from elevated plasma lipids and decreased levels of antioxidant defense systems, as well as reduced erythrocyte survival rate.

The present study deals with the antifungal activity of the hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of the plant Indigofera aspalathoides using agar diffusion method against human pathogens, such as Candida albicans; Candida parapsilosis; Candida tropicallis. In the present investigation, all the extracts were found to be effective against three human fungal species sensitive to all the plant extracts. The study suggests that the extract of the plant parts possesses potential broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial activity of methanol extracts was found to be higher than that of other extracts.
