The phytochemical investigation on Indigofera heterantha root oil resulted in the identification of 121 phytochemicals using GC-MS analysis. These phytochemicals were docked against alpha-amylase, alpha-glucosidase enzymes. The docking results suggested that Hexacosyl acetate (121) possess alpha-amylase inhibitory potential with a docking score of −8.2944994 and the interaction with alpha-glucosidase enzyme was −9.73762512, followed by 9, 12, 15-Octadecatrienoic acid, 2, 3-dihydroxypropyl

(Z, Z, Z)-(83) with a docking score of −9.59869957, showed outstanding results in all the stages of the study and may be shown as the most auspicious phytochemical resulting from the docking studies of the new antidiabetic drug. Additionally, Pharmacokinetic and PASS studies revealed their drug-likeness, expected safety upon consumption, and likely pharmacological effects.
