The study proposed to evaluate the Phytochemical and in-vitro antidiabetic potential of the stem part of Musa paradisiaca Linn. Musa paradisiaca is commonly known as banana. Its fruit is generally used as dietary source. Various pharmacological activities have been investigated in leaves, fruits, and fruit pulp of this plant. But very few activities and researches have been done on stem part of the plant. Generally stem of the plant considered to be the waste part. So we have used the same to investigate its phytochemical constituents and in vitro anti-diabetic potential by using alpha amylase and alpha glucosidase inhibition method. Results found that various phytochemical constituents are present in the hydro-alcoholic and methanolic extracts in different percentages like starch (4.31%, 3.79%), sugar (0.61%, 0.57%), flavanoids (0.45%, 0.35%), tannins (1.33%, 1.29%), phenolic compounds (5.4%, 4.5%), proanthocynidine (7.4%, 7.0%), and flavonols (0.72%, 0.64%) respectively.
