Diabetes mellitus has become a global epidemic over the past few decades and is one among the major causes of death worldwide. Although various modern medicines are in the market, herbal medicines have usually maintained worldwide popularity in achieving the primary health care needs of the diabetic population because of the multiple adverse effects related to them. Herbal medicines have a prolonged history of being used as medications and sources of medication for diabetes mellitus. Some of them are enclosed within the modern therapeutic arsenal of medicine, and others are used as complementary therapy or as dietary supplements by patients with diabetes. This present review focused on the herbs, the hypoglycemic actions of which have been supported by three or more clinical studies. According to the clinical studies, Allium sativum, Curcuma Longa, Gymnema sylvestre, Momordica charantia, Stevia rebaudiana have shown hypoglycemic and, in some cases, hypolipidemic activities in diabetic patients. Thus, it seems that physicians can rely on these herbs and advise for the patients to improve management of diabetes.
