The plants used in diabetes involved Abutilon indicum, Cassia sophera, Cassia tora

Antinociceptive and smooth muscle contracting activities of the methanolic extract of Cassia tora
leaves has been described (Chidume et al.
Hatano et al in 1999 studied the activity of phenolic constituents of Cassia tora
seeds and anti bacterial effect of some napthalenes and anthraquinones on methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus and 13 phenolic glycosides were isolated like torachrysone tetraglucoside.
Ononitol monohydrate, structurally similar to glycoside was isolated from Cassia tora
11) Cassia gum is a polygalactomannan that is isolated from the endosperm of the seeds of Cassia tora
and Cassia obtusifolia.
