Abstract

The present study was designed to perform evaluate antihyperglycemic activity of ethanolic extract of Cassia Fistula leaf. Leaf of cassia fistula was extracted using ethanol as solvent by soxhlet apparatus. The evaluation of antihyperlipidemic activity was done using High Fat Diet induced hyperlipidemia models in Wistar albino rats. The work entitled evaluation of anti-obesity activity of leaf of Cassia fistula was to determine the efficacy and safety in experimental animals. Both aqueous and alcoholic extract of leaf of Cassia Fistula (Linn.) have shown significant reduction in weight of heart and both the kidney as compared to cafeteria diet fed animals confirming their anti-obesity property. The aqueous and alcoholic extract of leaf of Cassia Fistula (Linn.) has shown significant decrease in serum levels of Total-Cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol, VLDL-Cholesterol and Triglyceride.
