This new volume provides a plethora of new information about potential medicinal herbs and their usefulness in treating diabetes and neurological diseases. Most large multinational companies are interested and engaged in the commercialization of herb-based formulations, and consumers continue to seek natural-based therapies.
Herbs for Diabetes and Neurological Disease Management provides insight into plant-based novel molecules targeted for diabetes and neurological disorders. It looks at a selection of herbs that have proven effective in the management of diabetes and neurological disorders, including migraine, epilepsy, memory disorders, depression, and more. Divided into ten chapters focusing on diabetes and its macro- and microvascular complications (migraine, epilepsy, memory disorders, depression and other neuropsychiatric disorders), this book is structured to provide a source of reliable information and enrich the knowledge of readers. Each chapter briefly explains the epidemiology and pathophysiology of the disease state and the possible role of herbal drugs in the prevention of the particular disease. The reported pharmacological activities and possible mechanism of action of herbal drugs are also discussed in detail, which makes this book informative and unique.
This new volume will be a reliable reference complementing the substantial information on the use of herbal drugs in diabetes and neurological disorders that serve as the pillars of drug discovery and development.
"Our societies find themselves burdened with a growing number of CNS disorders and diabetes, and augmentation of the present therapies by incorporating medicines from natural sources is desirable. Dr. Veeranjaneyulu and Dr. Kumar deserve kudos for putting together this book of thoughtful reviews on plants for treatment of major disorders of central nervous systems and diabetes. Written by several scientists, this book thus fulfills the need for a quick reference and will certainly rekindle interest in this area. . . . This book will be of immense value to researchers in the area and I congratulate both editors for this book."

"A valuable guide for modern drug hunters and pharmaceutical industries interested in identification of novel pharmacological therapies for meeting the treatment needs of patients suffering from, or at risk of, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. Information summarized in this book will certainly be very useful in translating the knowledge and knowhow of practitioners of traditionally known systems of medicine in terms of modern molecular sciences. . . . It cannot be overemphasized that such publications are necessary for evolution of experimental evidence-based holistic medicine."
