Abstract

 Eucalyptus is well represented in different Pharmacopeias for its variant pharmacology and depicts a wide range of photochemicals like triterpenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols, gallotannins and macrocarpals both in its volatile and nonvolatile fractions. Hot aqueous leaf decoctions of Eucalyptus have been recommended as ‘herbal tea’ in different regions of world for its hypoglycemic potentials. However lack of definitive dosage formulations of Eucalyptus bioactive, side effects like nausea, vomiting, gastric irritation, organoleptic unacceptability have limited its application; besides data on toxicology and posology being inconsistent and variant. In the current research work firstly comparative evaluations of hypoglycemic potentials amongst three Eucalyptus spp. E. globulus, E. citriodora, E. camaldulensis have been done by in vitro a-glucosidase assay
