ABSTRACT:
Herbal plants do have a unique place in the traditional or Ayurvedic system of medicines from ancient times onwards. The wider acceptance of herbal medicines is due to the low cost, fewer side effects, availability, and their superiority over allopathic medicines in terms of safety and efficacy. Morus indica is such a herbal plant which is being used in various ailments because of its wider spectrum of pharmacological actions. It grows as an ornamental plant in gardens of Kerala. It is commonly known as Indian mulberry. Besides its application in sericulture, it possesses various pharmacological actions such as Hypoglycemic, Hypolipidemic, Antiphlogistic, Diuretic, Expectorant, Hypotensive etc. Moreover, the plant also has many traditional uses. In addition to that, the leaves of Indian mulberry are reported with significant anti-diabetic activity. But it doesn’t have any known anti-diabetic marketed products yet. The meticulous use of this plant can be a boon to diabetic patients in the future in all aspects.
