Cissus polyantha (Vitaceae) is a plant used in Cameroonian traditional medicine for the treatment of diabetes. The aims of this study were to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant and antidiabetic activities of the aqueous extract of Cissus polyantha leafy stems. The enzyme inhibitory activity was determined in vitro on α-amylase and α-glucosidase enzymes, followed by confirmative study in vivo on normal rats (oral starch and sucrose tolerance tests at doses of 111, 222 and 444 mg/kg). The ferric reducing antioxidant … Continue reading “In vitro Antioxidant Effects and α -Amylase and α – Glucosidase Inhibitory Activity of Cissus polyantha Aqueous Extract”
