    Chronic metabolic disease known as diabetes mellitus is characterized by an imbalance in the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbohydrates that leads to hyperglycemia. insulin malfunction or insufficient insulin secretion are the major causes of this.[1] Patients with diabetes mellitus are dramatically rising globally, particularly in wealthy nations. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates that 537 million persons worldwide will have this heterogeneous metabolic disease in 2021. It is predicted to increase by 643 million adults by 2030.[2] Diabetes mellitus should be identified and treated effectively; otherwise, it can worsen and cause a host of micro- and macrovascular complications, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nephropathy, cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, and stroke.[3] Weight gain, hypersensitivity responses, hepatotoxicity, gastrointestinal problems, lactic acidosis, vitamin B12 insufficiency, ocular abnormalities, lipoatrophy, and many other adverse effects are reported with synthetic antidiabetic medications.Consequently, a polyherbal antidiabetic formulation that demonstrates an efficient and powerful action in contrast to synthetic formulations is required in order to avoid the difficulties and side effects of synthetic preparations. Consequently, a polyherbal antidiabetic formulation utilizing capsule forms of Cucurbita maxima, Moringa oleifera, Acalypha indica, Phyllanthus emblica, Nigella sativa, Trigonella foenum-graecum, Murraya koeniggi, Ocimum sanctum, Curcuma longa, Cinnamon cassia, and Zingiber officinale was attempted to be created in the current study. The developed formulation passed the tests for moisture content, stability, homogeneity in weight, bulk density, taped density, angle of repose, Hausner's ratio, Carr's index, and disintegration and dissolution.
