The antidiabetic study was done in-vivo in albino rats using streptozocin as the toxicant. The rats were treated for twenty-one days. The data obtained from the ethanolic extracts of leaves and flowers shows the effect in lowering the blood glucose level and maintains other biochemical parameters in the test group which was compared with the group treated with standard drug metformin and negative control group.
