Syamsudin, Inawati and Hendig Winarno    

Abstract: This is a study of the effect of Inai (Lawsonia inermis Linn) leaves extract on glucose, total cholesterol and triglyceride of blood of mice which was induced by alloxan of 70 mg kg 1 BW. Inai leaves extract was obtained by the percolation of dried inai leaves using 70% ethanol. Sample treatments were done at day of 0, 3, 7 and 14th after the mice underwent the hyperglycaemic condition. The results showed that the feeding of 0.8 g kg 1 BW of inai extract decreased the glucose concentration from 194 mg dL 1 to normal condition after the 14th day. A similar result occured on total cholesterol concentration in which the total cholesterol concentration decreased from 148.9-55.3 mg dL 1 and triglyceride concentration decreased from 225.7-76.9 mg dL 1.
