In vitro and In vivo screening of hypoglycemic activity of Artemisia herba-alba (Asso.) herbs emphasized its activity in hypoglycemic remedy. Further investigation on fractions of 70% ethyl alcohol extract of Artemisia herba-alba (Asso.) herbs revealed that the ethyl alcohol extract produces hypoglycemic effect more than any of its fractions. Four compounds were isolated and identified from fractions of 70% ethyl alcohol extract of Artemisia herba-alba (Asso.) herbs. These compounds were previously reported for their hypoglycemic activity.
