The aim of the study was to evaluate the antioxidant, hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic potential of methanolic extract of roots of Hemidesmus indicus HIE in streptozotocin STZ induced diabetic mice. The antioxidative, hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic activity were studied ex-vivo in tissues of diabetic mice. Phytochemical composition of hemidesmus indicus roots HIE revealed the presence of phenols, flavanoids, terpenoids and about 40 different phytoconstituents by LC-MS analysis. The decrease in fasting blood glucose and serum lipid profile was also observed in mice administered HIE.
