The diabetic rats showed lower activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and reduced glutathione (GSH) content in hepatic and renal tissues as compared to normal rats.
Watal, “Evidence-based critical evaluation of glycemic potential of Cynodon dactylon,” Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, vol.
The activities of SOD, CAT and GSH were found to be increased in extract-treated diabetic rats in selected tissues. The increased level of lipid peroxidation (thiobarbituric acid reactive substances) in diabetic rats was also found to be reverted back to near normal status in extract-treated groups.
Thus it may be concluded that the HDP may produce its hypoglycemic effect through antioxidant defense mechanism.1. IntroductionDiabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by elevated blood glucose concentration caused by insulin deficiency, often combined with insulin resistance [1]. By the year 2030, the total number of people worldwide with diabetes mellitus is projected to reach 366 million [2].
