The objective of the study was to evaluate the anti diabetic activity of ethanolic fraction of Thuja occidentalis (EFTO) and to probe into its mechanism of action. Fasting blood sugar, blood glutathione levels and serum biochemical analysis in alloxan induced diabetes were investigated. EFTO produced a significant anti diabetic activity at dose level of 200 mg/kg. EFTO also showed significant increase in blood glutathione level due to its anti oxidant activity.
