Introduction: Ipomea batatas (sweet potato) have high fiber content, good choice for diabetes, lower blood sugar that does nothing but control blood sugar. This attempt was done by a photochemical study of the extract which revealed the presence of glycosides, glucosinolates, and alkaloids, a pre medicine for type 2 diabetes mellitus. This study is to analyze the efficacy of anti-diabetic activity of Ipomea batatas with synthesized zinc oxide nanoparticles.
Materials And Methods: Ipomea batatas weighing 10g added with 0.574g of zinc oxide nanoparticles & 100 ml of NaOH. The mixture is then subjected to heating or condensation for 5 minutes in a water bath. It is repeated and the mixture is allowed to condense to 5 ml & used for the alpha amylase test and glucosidase test. Ipomea batatas with zinc oxide nanoparticles have shown more activity against diabetes compared with standard.
Results Conclusion: Our results showed that Ipomea batatas with silver nanoparticles have good anti-diabetic activity when compared to the standard.
Conclusion: In future, this can be considered in the pharmaceutical companies & used as an adjuvant rather than promoting higher doses of insulin and oral drugs.
