Diabetes mellitus, long considered a disease of minor significance to world health, is now emerging as one of the main threats to human health in the 21th century. In the Indian scenario, the world health organisation has estimated a sharp upswing in the number of diabetes from 19.4 million in 1995 to an expected 57.2 million by 2025. A study was therefore undertaken to assess the impact of ashwagantha root, Madhunasini leaves and Jamun seeds and oats incorporated breakfast preparation on glycemic index. The subjects were made to consume the test products. Blood samples withdrawn were similar to that of glucose load at zero minutes and post prandial blood glucose level at 60 minutes and 120 minutes. The results of the study clearly indicate that the Madhunasini leaves powder would prove to be more useful, simple, effective, easily available and economically affordable supplement for the effective management of type 2 diabetes.
