This disease affects around 5% of the world population now. But, recently available oral antidiabetic agents used in orthodox medicine have unmet efficacy and undesirable side effects in patients. Therefore, Research is a significant deal requirement for the development of new remedies for diabetes are in high demand. Surveys expect that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is used by 80% of the world population for their primary health care. Therefore, CAM represents one of the most important options for therapy for diabetes. The objective of this work is to provide a starting point for programs leading to the development of indigenous flavonoids botanical resources as inexpensive sources for standardized crude antidiabetic drugs, and the development of lead compounds for new hypoglycemic drug development.
