Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder that prevents the body to utilize glucose completely or partially. DM is a fast-growing global problem with huge social, health and economic consequences. The control of blood glucose level is essential for effective management of diabetes. There are many synthetic drugs that are being used as standard treatment for diabetes but they have adverse effects and therefore, there is a need to search for alternative natural therapy against diabetes with lesser side effects. A large number of herbal plants are in vogue for the treatment of types 2 DM. The herbal plants which have antidiabetic properties namely Jamun seed (Syzygium cumini), Fenugreek seed (Trigonella foenum) and Turmeric (Curcuma longa) are used in the present study. Herbal formulation (Churn) was prepared from jamun seeds, fenugreek seeds and turmeric powder in the proportion of 50:45:5 per cent. It indicated that the supplementation of the herbal churn 20 g per day (10 g twice a day: in early morning and at bed time) continuously for two months was found effective for lowering and controlling of blood glucose as well as blood pressure level in type-2 diabetic subjects.
