  The metabolic syndrome (MetS) by definition is the presence of 3/5 symptoms at the same time, like abnormal fasting glycaemia, abdominal obesity, increasedblood pressure (BP), hypertrigyceridaemia and low amounts of high density lipoprotein ( HDL) [1]. With MetS chances of acquiring serious problems like type2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), coronary heart disease (CHD), Ischemic stroke and atherosclerosis is present. Statistics conducted recently display that MetS takes place in 20-25% of adult population which has taken epidemic levels [2]. With it becoming a big therapeutic problem in developed countries, emphasis is being laid on producing efficacious, safe cures.
