In vitro and in vivo hypoglycemic and colorimetric determination of glucose concentration of the different solvent extracts of Crescentia cujete Linn. fruit
International Journal of Advanced and Applied Sciences
In this study, Crescentia cujete Linn. fruit was extracted using 95% ethanol and was concentrated in vacuo. The crude ethanolic extract (CEE) was then subjected to solvent partitioning using hexane and water. Fresh (FE) and decocted (DE) extracts were also prepared by m/v ratio of sample:water. Among the plants samples in vitro hypoglycemic assay, 10000ppm hexane extract possessed the highest ability to inhibit (55.21%) the activity of alphaamylase. Also, 10000ppm AE and CEE exhibited 32.87%doi:10.21833/ijaas.2017.07.005 fatcat:othybp7a2vg2xhz5ug5clh6cxq
