Although a large number of phytochemicals have been identified and tested for various properties but no compound have been extended for drug design purpose. Present work conducted on Murraya koenigii illustrates its anti-diabetic and anti-oxidant activities using various biochemical tests. From various evaluated leaf extracts of M.koenigii, DCM and Ethanol extracts were the one which showed best activity for anti-oxidant and anti-diabetic assays.
