The Eugenia polyantha leaves were collected in Sukabumi and Bogor, Indonesia in mid Julywith the same type of soil and air-dried prior to extraction. The bark and stem are known to have anti diarrheal activity. The presence of other active compounds in the fraction should be evaluated further in an attempt to clarify the potential effects. The free radical -scavenging activity of each extract was determined.

Activity-guided isolation was conducted polyantah an alpha glucosidase assay to screen for antidiabetes activity in the aqueous extracts. The Indonesian folk name daun salam literally means peace leafbut I cannot explain this name further.

The change of glucose level and body weight during the 21 day of treatment of the six test groups are presented in Fig. The extracts of Eugenia polyantha leaves exhibited potential antidiabetic effects through the inhibition of alpha glucosidase activity and lowering glucose blood level.

The test animals were obtained from Veterinary Research Center, Bogor. Even though the death rate due to diabetes mellitus is lower than that due to heart failure, the consequences remain alarming.
