Abstract

Diabetic complications occur as a result of increased reactive oxygen species ROS due to long term hyperglycaemia. Honey and ginger have been shown to exhibit antioxidant activity which can scavenge ROS. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant and antidiabetic effects of gelam honey, ginger, and their combination. Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 2 major groups which consisted of diabetic and nondiabetic rats. Diabetes was induced with streptozotocin intramuscularly 55 mg-kg body weight. Each group was further divided into 4 smaller groups according to the supplements administered: distilled water, honey 2 g-kg body weight, ginger 60 mg-kg body weight, and honey + ginger. Body weight and glucose levels were recorded weekly, while blood from the orbital sinus was obtained after 3 weeks of supplementation for the estimation of metabolic profile: glucose, triglyceride TG, superoxide dismutase SOD, catalase CAT, glutathione peroxidase GPx, reduced glutathione GSH: oxidized glutathione GSSG, and malondialdehyde MDA. The combination of gelam honey and ginger did not show hypoglycaemic potential; however, the combination treatment reduced significantly SOD and CAT activities as well as MDA level, while GSH level and GSH-GSSG ratio were significantly elevated in STZ-induced diabetic rats compared to diabetic control rats.
