The seeds of fenugreek and flaxseeds are ayurvedic drugs with no side effects that are known to control many diseases. When extracted using harmful chemicals such as petroleum ether, hexane, etc., flaxseed oil and fenugreek oil's had an ability to control blood glucose levels. Hence, we intend to extract these oils using green chemistry principles. Accordingly, we plan to test by using four different methods of extracting flaxseed and fenugreek oil, following green chemistry principles, to determine which yields the most effective results. We used mol inspiration web software to calculate some of the QSAR parameters in this study. Then, using an in vitro method known as DNSA, we screened for anti-diabetic activity with the help of UV. We determined the combined and individual anti-diabetic effects of both oils.
