- ... Recent decades have witnessed a sharp increase in the incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus. One antidiabetic therapeutic approach is to reduce gastrointestinal glucose production and absorption through the inhibition of carbohydrate-digesting enzymes such as α-amylase and α-glucosidase. In this study, crude extracts and their corresponding fractions of flowers, fruits, (stems and l ...

- ... The total phenolic, flavonoid and tannin contents of Scabiosa arenaria Forssk roots were determined by colorimetry. The in vitro antioxidant activity was characterized by varied assays like 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), 2,2-azinobis 3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid (ABTS), reducing power and β-carotene bleaching inhibition activity. The anti-acetylcholinesterase activity was also eva ...
