The present study aimed to investigate the effects of(JR) extract on hyperglycaemia and insulin sensitivity.Forty rats were divided into 4 groups: Control (C), Diabetes Control (DC), Diabetes +(D + JR) and Diabetes + Metformin (D + M).In the D + JR group, Fasting blood glucose (FBG) levels decreased from day 14 onwards. There was a significant decrease in plasma levels of Fibronectin Type III Domain Containing 5 (FNDC5) and adiponectin (ADP) in the DC group compared to the C group ( < .01, < .001 respectively). In the D + JR group, there was a significant increase in plasma FNDC5 and ADP ( < .05), while the plasma Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) levels were decreased compared to the DC group ( < .001).In conclusion, the present study found that JR and its bioactive components alleviated insulin resistance by increasing ADP and FNDC5 and decreasing FBG in a rat model of streptozotocin (STZ) + nicotinamide (NAD)-induced type 2 diabetes (T2D). Highlightsextract increased insulin sensitivity.extract significantly reduced the level of fasting blood glucose.extract reduced TNF-α levels in rats with type 2 diabetes.extract prevent weight loss in type 2 diabetes.
