The table shows percent inhibitory activity of small intestinal glucosidases using plant extracts. The data is indicated as the mean ± SEM; (n = 3). Two-tailed t-test was applied. Values with different asterisks (*,**) shows significant difference with (*) denoting more significant value, P <  .05, two-tailed student t-test. ND defines no enzyme inhibition.
