THE EFFECT OF BROCCOLI IN PREVENTING INCREASE OF BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVEL AT 2-HOURS POSTPRANDIAL ON MICE

  • In patient with Diabetes Mellitus and pre-diabetes, the oral glucose tolerancetest usually shows an abnormal value. Thus, it is recommended that diabetic patientshould increase consumption of vegetables. Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica)is one of the excellent sources of high soluble fibers and low glycemic index and loadwhich can help to improve and maintain the postprandial blood glucose level. Based on this, a laboratory experimental study was conducted to know theeffect of broccoli in preventing increase of blood glucose level at 2-hourspostprandial. About 28 healthy adult male Swiss-Webster mice were used, dividedinto 4 groups of seven. All groups received glucose 50% 0.5 mL orally with Group Ias control. Meanwhile, Group II, III and IV received 0.13 g, 0.26g and 0.52g mashedbroccoli respectively also given orally. The blood glucose level was measured beforeand after 2 hours giving glucose and mashed broccoli. The percentage increase of blood glucose level were analyzed and the resultshows that there are no significant difference between the control and experimentalgroups (p = 0.369). As a conclusion, there is no effect of broccoli in preventing increase of bloodglucose level at 2-hours postprandial on mice.
