Abstract

Plants are the major source of drugs comprising to different groups such as anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, antispasmodics, anti-microbial, etc. A number of plants are claimed to possess anti-diabetic properties in the traditional systems and extensively used by tribal people as well as local inhabitants. Out of these ‘Gud-mar’/ ‘Gulmar’ is one of the groups. Ethnobotanical data revealed that, Gymnemasylvestre (Retz.) R.Br. ex Sm., Gymnema cuspidatum (Thunb.) Kuntze, Gymnema latifoliumWall. ex Wight, Gymnema inodorum (Lour.) Decne.,Gymnema montanum Hook. f. and Ichnocarpus frutescens (L.) W.T. Aiton are called Gulmar and used as anti-diabetic plantsin Maharashtra. Therefore, phytochemical screening was carried out using standard experimental procedures in dry leaf powder of Gymnema sylvestre, G.cuspidatum, G.latifolium and Ichnocarpus frutescens. This study scientifically validates the use of these plants in traditional medicines and the phytochemical data is helpful for standardization of indigenous drug.
