Abstract: In the last few years there has been an exponential growth in the field of herbal medicine and these drugs are gaining much popularity both in developing and developed countries because of their natural origin and less side effects. Many traditional medicines in use are derived from medicinal plants, minerals and organic matter. In Indian systems of medicine, most practioners formulate and dispense their own recipes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has listed 21, 000 plants, which are used for medicinal purposes around the world. Among these, 2, 500 species are in India, out of which 150 species are used commercially on a fairly large scale. India is the largest producer of medicinal herbs and is therefore called as botanical garden of the world. In the present study, we are going to focus on herbal drug preparations and plants used in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, a major crippling disease in the world leading huge economic losses. From the present investigation it can be inferred that except neem pure extract of Eclipta alba plant possess potent antidiabetic activity better than any of the plants compared here.
