Figure 1: Effect of ethanolic extract of H. sabdariffa on oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in normal (a) and diabetic rats (b). The tail vein blood was collected before and at 30, 60, and 120 min after glucose loading (2 g/kg, orally) for measuring blood glucose at 0, 30, 60, and 120 min, respectively. HS-EE 1.0 g/kg significantly improved OGTT in diabetic rats, but not in normal rats. Values are mean±S.E.M. *P<0.05 as compared to DW receiving group. DW: Distilled water, HS-EE: Ethanolic extract of H. sabdariffa
