Abstract

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by persistent hyperglycemia either due to less production of insulin or resistance of insulin receptors. Globally 463 million individuals are affected by type 2 diabetes & 77 million belong to India. India is deemed as the world's capital of diabetes. It can be correlated to Madhumeha. Bhudhatryadi Yoga is mentioned for the treatment of Prameha. Bhudhatryadi Yoga has Tikta Rasa, Laghu-Ruksha Guna, Sheeta Veerya. Katu Rasa of Maricha is Deepana and Pachana. It does Kleda Shoshana, Meda Shoshana and Kapha Harana. It removes Sroto Rodha and thereby helps in alleviating Kapha Prakopa. The effect of methanol extract of aerial parts of Bhumyamlaki has α–amylase & α–glucosidase enzyme inhibitory properties. α –amylase & α – glucosidase aid the production of glucose from the catabolism of starches and oligosaccharides.
