Abstract:Hypoglycemic activities of irradiated and non-irradiated banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa Linn.)
extracts were tested on alloxan-treated diabetic mice. The effects of 25% nBLE (non-irradiated BLE), 50% nBLE,
25% iBLE and 50% iBLE were comparable to the hypoglycemic effect of insulin (reference). Time-course
monitoring indicated that blood glucose levels started to decline within 1.5 hours post-administration of BLE
