RAGHAVENDRA NAIK, SNEHA D BORKAR, RABINARAYAN ACHARYA.

Abstract
Ayurvedic literature enlisted vegetables under the group “Shakavarga”, where the properties and indications of individual plant in different disease conditions, have been described. In clinical practice, these plants were also prescribed by traditional practitioners as Pathya (wholesome diet). Ayurveda promotes the use of Pathya in the prevention as well as management of many diseases including Prameha (Diabetes mellitus). In the present review, plants described in Shakavarga, indicated as Pathya in Prameha were compiled from 15 different Ayurvedic classical texts. The obtained data has been analysed and being presented in a precise manner with regards to their reported activity in diabetes. In the present study, it is observed that about 332 plants were described under Shakavarga, among which 29 Shaka (Vegetables) are indicated in Prameha. Out of these, botanical identity of 27 plants has been established. Maximum number of vegetables belongs to the family solanaceae and cucurbitaceae. Different parts i.e. leaves (15), fruits (9), Rhizome/tuber (4), shoot/stem (1) are used as vegetable in Prameha. Among the 29 classical vegetables indicated in Prameha, 18 have been reported for their efficacy in the management of diabetes mellitus on different animal experimental models. The present review reports the importance of use of classical vegetables as Pathya in diabetes. The observed result may be helpful in planning further scientific studies about the efficacy of these plants on prevention as well as management of diabetes.

Key words: Classical vegetables, Diabetes mellitus, Pathya, Prameha, Shakavarga.
