Ayurveda is 5000 year old science which is being researched now and the modern world uses the term “Scientific Ayurveda”. Few herbs with researches on their anti-diabetic actions have been mentioned here!!
Gymnema sylvestre (Meshashringhi, Gurmar)
The Gymnema/gurmar leaf or its concentrated extract is accounted to be the most commonly used herb for diabetic patients worldwide. Potential anti-diabetic ingredients of Gymenma are gymnemosides, gymnemic acids & gurmarin (Porchezhian and Dobriyal 2003). Research depicts meshashringhi to increase beta cells in pancreas. Gymnema sylvestre extract has a positive impact on sugar metabolism & it also enhances glucose take-up in peripheral tissues and helps in increasing insulin secretion (Dey, Attele, and Yuan 2002). The research actually depicted that gymnema helps to revive and rejuvenate beta cells of pancreas which make insulin thus increases serum insulin. Gymnema helps to diminish the take-up of glucose from the small intestine, enhance glucose digestion, diminish glycosylated haemoglobin(three months sugar levels- HbA1c), mask the taste impression of sweets, and enhance insulin secretion. It also helps in dyslipidemia (lowers lipids levels as well) which is seen in almost every diabetic patient (Baskaran et al. 1990; Porchezhian and Dobriyal 2003). This is a multitasking herb for your health & I think one of the best herbs for diabetes patients.
Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon, Dalchini)
Cinnamon is discovered nowadays as an excellent supplement for diabetes patient. The bio-active chemicals/ingredients which have anti-diabetic properties are polyphenol type-A. A Research done by T Crawford (2009) which involves assessment of 109 diabetic patients who were already treated with eating routine and exercise, were found to achieve normal glucose levels as indicated in their HbA1c report. Different researches additionally recommended advantageous impacts on blood glucose levels and lipids as well (Khan et al. 2003; Anderson 2008; Mang et al. 2006). That’s why it is one of the best home remedy for diabetic patients.
Azadirachta indica (Neem)
It is that herb whose effect cannot be neglected on diabetic patients. In a Research Study Neem’s hydro-alcoholic concentrates depicted hypoglycemic action in streptozotocin treated rats. Besides having this anti-diabetic action, this plant additionally has multi-tasking abilities like antibacterial, antimalarial, hepatoprotective and cancer prevention properties.
Eugenia jambolana (Indian gooseberry, Jamun)
In Ancient India, since ages Jamun is used as a fruit & its decoction is utilized as a solution for diabetes. Jamun has numerous constituents and ingredients which makes it one of the best natural supplements for diabetes. A study depicted watery and alcoholic concentrate of jamun has antihyperglycemic impact i.e. decrease in blood glucose level. In another study jamun concentrate demonstrated its hypoglycemic property in streptozotocin toxicated diabetic rats. Research even proves oral administration of its concentrated extract brought about increment in serum insulin levels in diabetic rats.
Momordica charantia (Bitter gourd, karela)
In India & Asian nations Momordica charantia is used since ages as an antidiabetic and antihyperglycemic specialist. Juice & Concentrates of bitter gourd’s seeds, leaves and entire plant even appeared to have hypoglycemic impact in different mice models in various researches.
Pterocarpus marsupium (Vijayasar)
Another very potent herb for all diabetic patients is Vijaysaar. Its major constituent Pterostilbene, derived from wood of plant exhibited hypoglycemic effect in puppies which proved its hypoglycemic action. A Flavonoid which is derived from Pterocarpus proves to cause pancreatic beta cell regranulation. Its constituents Marsupin, pterosupin and liquiritigenin exhibited antihyperlipidemic activity as well. More and more diabetic type 2 cases have both the issues together i.e. High blood sugar and high lipid levels, so by supplementing this herb one can treat both diabetes and high cholesterol.
Phyllanthus emblica (Amalaki, Indian gooseberry)
Amlaki a well know immune-booster, also helps keep blood glucose levels steady and stop spikes after meals. Amla has chromium, a mineral which may be a key regulator in carbohydrate metabolism and is claimed to make the body more aware of insulin.
It possesses antidiabetic, antihyperglycemic, insulinomimetic, α-Amylase inhibitory, α-glucosidase inhibitory & a robust antioxidant (due to the presence of vitamin C) properties. It improves insulin sensitivity & also increases glucose uptake by skeletal muscles which is useful in the treatment of Diabetes (Madhumeha, Prameha) also as well as prevention of its complications like diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, gastropathy and atherosclerosis.
Tinospora cordifolia (Giloy/Guduchi)
This herb is termed as Amrita in Ayurveda because it works like its name in various disorders. This is among the foremost widely researched herb & has been evaluated for various diseases. Oral administration of the concentrate of Tinospora cordifolia caused an enormous decrease in blood and urine glucose levels and also decreased cholesterol in alloxan diabetic rats. The concentrate additionally caused reduction in weight, meaning it’s very useful for obese persons and for those who are trying to find sugar level reduction also.
Withania coagulans (Paneer dodi)
The fruit of Withania coagulans has been proven to possess antihyperglycemic properties and is widely utilized in the Indian system of drugs. Treatment of diabetic rats with different doses of water extract of W. coagulans resulted in significant reduction in Fasting blood glucose levels, Post Prandial sugar levels and HbA1c. Also Serum insulin increased significantly compared with the untreated- diabetic rats.
Trigonella foenum graceum (Methi)
Methi is among the simplest anti-diabetic herbs and is employed in almost every home along with modern medicine. This is often an extensively researched herb. The extract of this herb exhibited significant hypoglycemic effect varied from dose to dose in alloxan treated rats.
