Diabetes mellitus has been spreading rapidly in the current era. This research aims to discover a new treatment of diabetes involving the beta-Glucan represented by Oat and phenolic compounds extracted from two different sources namely Vernonia Amygdalina and Archidendron Jiringa. Both Beta-Glucan and Phenolic compounds are inserted into each other in a process called intercalation to make up a new compound which has different properties. The phenolic compounds will be extracted using water bath shaker and the extracted sample will be tested using HPLC to quantify the phenolic compound using Gallic acid as a standard. The Vernonia Amygdalina, Archidendron Jiringa and Oat will be mixed in a water base solution and to be given to diabetic patients in order to test the effectiveness of the blood glucose reduction. The testing shows that there is a blood glucose reduction of 25% for non-diabetic patients and 19% for diabetic patients.
