Effects of Nigella Sativa and Syzygium Cumini Seed Extracts on Blood Glucose Levels in Swiss Albino Mice
Keywords:Nigella Sativa, Syzygium Cumini, Blood Glucose, Albino mice, Bangladesh
A Swiss Albino mouse model was used to study the effects of two species that are common in Bangladesh: Nigella Sativa L. and Syzygium Cumini L. The trial looked at how a blend of methanol extracts from Syzygium Cumini L. and Nigella Sativa L. affected blood sugar levels using the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). 40 overnight starved mice were divided into eight groups with a 4:1 male to female ratio. After 120 minutes of glucose injection, blood glucose levels were measured using a glucometric method. However, the mean values of the samples that were only treated with high doses of Syzygium Cumini L. (Group 1) and Nigella Sativa L. (Group 2) were 3.92 mmol/l and 3.8 mmol/l, respectively. Group-5 low dose (50 mg/kg) treated mean value was 4.02 mmol/l, group-6 moderate dose (100 mg/kg) treated mean value was 3.7 mmol/l, group-7 poly medium dose (200 mg/kg) treated mean value was 3.38 mmol/l, and group-8 poly high dose (400 mg/kg) treated mean value was 3.12 mmol/l where combined extract formulations were used. The combined formulation of the methanol extract of Nigella Sativa L. (Seed) and Syzygium Cumini L. (Seed) possesses significant oral hypoglycemic activity at different time intervals in the cases when compared to Control mean value, showing that all doses given significantly reduced blood sugar level
