Over 90% percent of diabetic patients are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Their rational use can achieve the blood sugar target and reduce the risk of complications. Herbal antidiabetics are liver and kidney-friendly and can be continued for a long period of time. Since they are not causing hypoglycemia and are well tolerable, drug compliance is better. Owing to multiple phytochemicals inherent in an herb it can improve the immunity and anti-oxidant defense system of the body and help in the regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism by targeting various metabolic pathways. In combination with the conventional drug, it exhibits a better (synergistic) effect than either medicine. Medicinal herbs contain diverse bioactive compounds and can have multiple actions on insulin action, insulin production, or both. These glucose lowering herbs have the ability to target insulin resistance, 𝛽-cell function, incretin-related pathways, and glucose (re)absorption.
