Despite its widespread usage in traditional medicine, the phytochemical contents of K. lanceolata are not well studied, particularly in terms of its potential involvement in diabetes management. In this study, the objective was to identify the phytochemical constituents of K. lanceolata and determine how they can help with diabetes management. The whole plant methanolic, ethyl acetate, and petroleum ether extracts were analysed with GC-MS to identify bioactive components. In this study, 63 compounds were identified, 27 of which possess bioactive properties. Acorenone B, columbin, phytol, astaxanthin, β-sitosterol, 2,4-di-tert-butylphenol, and caryophyllene oxide are significant compounds found to be present in K. lanceolata. In silico molecular docking studies predicted the antidiabetic and antibacterial properties of phytochemical compounds. These compounds show potential as antibacterial, antifungal and antidiabetic agents. This study stresses the significance of K. lanceolata bioactive components and sheds light on the therapeutic potential in diabetes control.

Nutraceutical muffins offer a novel approach by combining the enjoyment of a tasty snack with the health benefits of bioactive compounds. These muffins are formulated with ingredients such as mung bean flour, spinach powder, guava powder, jaggery, and ghee to provide dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Gluten-free and suitable for diabetics, they also address health concerns such as energy enhancement, vitamin deficiency, constipation, and bone health. In conclusion, nutraceutical muffins present an exciting way to merge health and flavor, making functional ingredients easily accessible in daily diets. However, further research is needed to optimize their formulation and validate their health benefits.
