Figure 1: Mechanisms underlying plants used in traditional medicine in the management of diabetes mellitus. Some inhibit intestinal absorption of glucose and alter glucose metabolizing enzymes (type A herbs); have insulin mimetic properties (type B herbs); potentiates glucose-induced insulin release (type C herbs); enhances peripheral glucose uptake (type D herbs); promotes regeneration of β-cell of islets of Langerhans (type E herbs); and ameliorates oxidative stress (type F herbs)
