Why use these traditional Indian herbal medicinal plants to regulate glucose levels?

Momordica Charantia (bitter melon). This melon contains 3 active ingredients that have been shown to have anti-diabetic properties. Charatin, Vicine and polypeptide-p. Those three ingredients work   together to help reduce blood sugar levels.[1]


Symnema Sylvestre (perennial woody vine). This plant is regarded as having potent anti-diabetic properties and is also used for controlling obesity. Gymnema Sylvestre is also referred to in Hindi as the term gurmar which means sugar destroyer.[2]

Trigonella Foenum Graecum (Fenugreek). Fenugreek is a plant whose seeds are used in many types of Ayurveda medicine. Fenugreek has been shown to have a positive impact on blood sugar levels by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.[3]

Curcuma Longa (Turmeric). Turmeric contains a class of compounds called curcuminoids. Curcumin is one of the curcuminoids found in Turmeric. Curcumin protects beta cells which are the cells that produce insulin and secrete the hormone Amylin (also called c-peptide) which helps slow the rate that glucose enters the bloodstream. Curcumin is also thought to help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels.[4]

Emblica Officinalis (Phyllanica Emblica). Emblica Officinalis is an Indian gooseberry found on the Malacca tree. Due to its antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties, it influences blood glucose levels producing an overall anti-diabetic effect on the body.[5]

Swertia Chirata (plant/herb). Swertia Chirata is a plant with purple flowers found in the Himalayas. This plant contains Xanthones, naturally produced chemical compounds. Xanthones are a rich source of antioxidants and have been shown to have a significant impact on insulin resistance.[6]

Picrorhiza Kurroa (Kutki) (plant/perennial herb). Picrorhiza Kurroa contains an active compound called Kutkin (comprised of iridoid glycosides (Picroside I and II) and kutkoside). It’s recently been shown that iridoid glycosides plays an active role in helping the body resist hyperglycaemia.[7]

Syzygium Cumini (Eugenia jambolana). Syzygium Cumini is a flowering tree. The seeds, the fruit, and the leaves from this tree have been shown to help reduce blood sugar levels. [8]

Tinospora Cordifolia (Guduchi) (Vine). Tinospora Cordifolia contain active phytoconstituents (chemical compounds occurring naturally in plants). These various phytoconstituents have been shown to lower glucose levels, improve hepatic metabolism during insulin resistance, decrease cholesterol level and help maintain blood pressure.[9]

Melia Azadirachta (tree). The leaves from this tree have been shown to have a positive effect and help to reduce blood glucose levels.[10]

GCB70 (Green coffee bean extract and 70% Chlorogenic acids). Studies have shown that Chlorogenic acids may have a biological effect on the small intestines, helping to regulate metabolism.
