Processed in Gurmar & Neam Leaf aquous extract.

Mode of action:-

It delayed the rate of absorption of carbohydrates in gastro intestinal transit. It also increases the uptake of glucose by cells. It is now established that the herbal medicines have potency to increase the production of insulin, and rejuvenates the liver and pancreas.

Gurmar(Gymnema Sylvetris):-

An enzyme isolated from it has been shown  to  bring about glycolysis  in  vitro,reducing  the  strength of a glucose solution.  It is believed to neutralize excess sugar present in the body in diabetes mellitus.  The leaf extract contains gymnemic acid, which is said to inhibit the adrenohyophyseal stress response and the hyperglycaemic response to adrenaline and growth hormone. It has also been  shown  to   have a regenerative effect on beta-cells.

Karela (Momordica  charantia):- 

The  fruits and seeds yield a polypeptide considered  to  be   similar to bovine insulin,which has been shown to have a hypoglycaemic effect in all types of diabetes. It also promotes peripheral utilisation of glucose.

AB:  The hypoglycaemic effect of orally administered extracts of Momordica charantia L.    fruits  was examined in normoglycaemic or cyproheptadine-induced hyperglycaemic mice.  The aqueous extract reduced the fasting glucose levels of hyperglycaemic or normoglycaemic mice. However, the ethanol extract did not affect the fasting or non fasting glucose levels significantly in both groups of mice. There was no significant difference between the glucose-loaded and glucose-loaded plus aqueous extract given group. On the other hand, oral glucose loading of the cyproheptadine-induced hyperglycaemic animals reduced the fasting glucose levels significantly. These results showed that aqueous extract of M.charantia fruits has a hypoglycaemic activity without improving the tolerance to glucose in cyproheptadine-induced diabetic mice.

Puified Shilajit (Ashphaltam)

It has anabolic panceatotopic effects. It is valuable in the cases of diabetic albuminuia where both casts and albumin diminish and is to be said to be a cure for diabetic amauosis .It rapidly relieves thirsts, polyuria, burning sensation and exhaustion and markedly helps assimilation of sugar. It has been considered to act as a biocatalyst as it increases the peripheral demand of glucose for the growth and metabolic process. Thus by inhibiting the hyperglycaemia it seems to save the beta-cells and pancreas from detoriating by restricting glucose load and also by promoting unrestricted endogenous insulin action.

Prameha (Diabetes)

         In today's stressful modern living, incidence of Diabetes is definitely increasing. Every now and then we come across patients of Diabetes seeking Ayurvedic treatment and advice. Here is a brief description of Prameha (Diabetes)

        It is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to make proper use of glucose resulting in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (sugar in urine).
        Poorly managed diabetes can lead to a host of long-term complications like :-
Heart attacks.
Nerve damage.
Amputation of Limb.
Impotence in men.
Pruritus (Itching)

        Recent studies in the USA have revealed that if we keep our 'blood sugar' close to normal, there is a chance to resist Diabetes and it's complications.

        According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of this disease: 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But prameha is mainly kapha doshaja disease.
