Background: Diabetes mellitus is an international public health problem since ancient days. The condition is predominantly more severe in developing countries like India where, life is more sedentary due to the even changing lifestyles in this fast-paced global scenario. Thespesia populnea is widely used in the ayurvedic system of medicine for treatment of diabetes mellitus in India for years. The aim of this work is to explore the anti-diabetic activity of the isolated compound. Materials and Methods: The sesquiterpene isolated from hexane fraction of bark of T. populnea modified synthetically then identified by using analytical techniques such as electron paramagnetic resonance spectra for confirmation and the anti-diabetic activity was evaluated by anti-hyperglycemic, hypoglycemic potential. Result: In the present work, we have studied the anti-hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic activity of the vanadium complex in glucose loaded and normal animals were shown significantly decreased in plasma blood glucose level. The results derived from preclinical studies confirm the potential of new sesquiterpene. Conclusion: The findings could provide evidence regarding the anti-diabetic potential of T. populnea by lowering blood glucose level.
