J Ethnopharmacol. Epub Feb 6. Investigation of the antioxidant and hypoglycemiant properties of Alibertia edulis L.

It is popularly used for the control of diabetes, especially in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. Following confirmation of the antioxidant activity of A.
The animals were observed periodically for 14 days. Plasma indicators of glucose tolerance and liver damage, skeletal muscle expression of antioxidant enzymes, and expression of the antioxidant proteins of superoxide dismutase SOD , catalase, glutathione peroxidase GPx and phosphorylated IKK were determined. Meanwhile, the AEAE treatment did lower the glucose levels in the normolipidic cohorts by virtue of its antioxidant property.
It was also observed that the treatment with the AEAE reduced food intake negatively interfering weight accretion. Beyond that, the treatment with AEAE interfered in the SOD and catalase expression and inhibited phosphorylation of IKK thus suggesting that the observed hypoglycemiant power may be related to its known antioxidant potential.
No sings of toxicity or hemolysis were detectaed at indicating that, at the concentrations evaluated, the extract was not toxic to normal cells. The extract also exhibited substantial protection against hemolysis and oxidative stress. All rights reserved.
