Abstract
Since ancient times, plants have been an important source of medicine. Ayurveda and other Indian literature mention the use of plants in the treatment of various human ailments. The ethno-botanical information reports about 800 plants that may possess anti-diabetic potential. A wide array of plant derived active principles representing numerous chemical compounds has demonstrated activity consistent with their possible use in the treatment of Diabetes mellitus (DM). Among these are alkaloids, glycosides, galactomannan gum, polysaccharides, peptidoglycans, hypoglycans, guanidins, steroids, carbohydrates, glucopeptides, terpenoids, amino acids and inorganic ions.North East India is rich of its flora and fauna; the flora of this region includes aromatic and medicinal plants with a number of bioactive compounds. Most of these medicinal plants are required to identify the active principles present in these plants. Before the coming of the modern pharmacological medicines, the people of North East India are using medicinal plants for the treatment of Diabetes mellitus. Even today, people not only in the rural areas but those living in the urban areas are also using these medicines, and give first preference to herbal treatments by consulting the medicine men. A report of some commonly used anti-diabetic plants in the indigenous system of health care will be highlighted.
