VALENZUELA-SOTO, Ramón et al. Evaluation of the Antioxidant Activity of Cnidoscolus chayamansa (Chaya), Euphorbia prostrata (Herb of the Swallow) and Jatropha dioica (Drago blood) in Wistar rats Induced to Hyperglycemia. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.1, pp.36-42. ISSN 0717-9502.

Recent studies have shown that the active compounds present in extracts of C. chayamansa, E. prostrata and J. dioica have antioxidant properties. The results obtained in our study were soluble phenolic compounds showed in C. chayamansa 6.34, E. prostrata 10.67, J. dioica 1.83 mg equiv of gallic acid/gm BS respectively. The antioxidants soluble in water by the ABTS method were for C. chayamansa 5.9, E. prostrata 12.7 and for J. dioica 2.5 mM equiv. of trolox/gr BS. The histopathological results show an improvement in the tissues treated with the extracts after the induction to hyperglycemia.
