Evaluation of hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic properties of Swertia chirata

Shoaib Ali, Muhammad Farooq and Waheed Ali Panhwar

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic properties of Swertia chirata from Abbottabad, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Grinded powder of Swertia chirata was orally given to patients of diabetes type-II to investigate its effect on glucose level and lipid profile. The results revealed that Swertia chirata reduced glucose level (14.5%), triglycerides (10.5%), cholesterol (8.6%), and LDL cholesterol level by 14.4% in diabetic patients. Further phytochemical analysis is suggested for the biochemical characterization of potential components.
