Herbs to Control Diabetes

Are you suffering from diabetes? Is your blood sugar fluctuating? Do you find yourself waking up several times at night to urinate? Add to this increased level of exhaustion or fatigue at the end of the day, and you may probably have abnormal blood glucose levels.

Now if you are one of the many suffering from high blood sugar, you are likely on some life-long medications to bring back the optimum sugar levels in the body. Did you know that the impact of these medications on your health is immense because of their side effects? The common side effects are nausea, vomiting, acidity, indigestion, diarrhea, nervousness and anxiety. Further, most of these medicines can adversely affect your liver or kidney, which are already at risk due to elevated sugar levels. Yet doing away with medication doesn’t seem to be an option either, as it can instantly raise your sugar levels and increase your chances for diabetic complications.

While diabetes is very serious, it can be managed and people can still lead active full lives in spite of the disease. There is a need to carefully manage this disease with more safe and alternative options that can complement current anti-diabetic medications and even prevent diabetes in high risk individuals having family history of diabetes or are pre-diabetics.

Don’t lose hope, herbs are available in Mother Nature that help to control and regulate blood sugar levels for better quality of life. The use of natural herbs or alternative medicines are found to have as much of an impact as conventional medicines, but without any harmful side effects. In addition, herbs help promote better and healthy cell function which can over a time help improve bodily functions instead of simply countering the problem.

Know the herbs that help improve sugar metabolism

Aegle marmelos (Bael tree leaf)

Indigenous to South Asia, this herb has been used in several medicines with great results. Commonly known as “Wood Apple”, is considered to be sacred to the Hindus in India and has been known for its medicinal values since 2000 BC. Recognized initially for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to aid digestion, the Bael leaf extract has been shown in studies to help metabolise glucose and stimulate pancreatic cells.

Several research studies have found that this herb enhances the ability of body cells to utilise the glucose load in the blood by enhancing glucose uptake similar to insulin. Its ability to promote healthy insulin function and glucose metabolism helps protect against sudden spikes and falls of sugar levels. In addition, the extracts of this leaf are also found to be effective in lowering cholesterol and protecting the heart.

Pterocarpus marsupium (Indian Kino Tree)

This herb is widely used for maintaining various metabolic functions. Recent research studies have found that this herb helps modulate blood sugar metabolism to maintain healthy blood sugar levels by stimulating beta cells in the pancreas that produce, store and release the hormone insulin. The tannins in Pterocarpus helps cells use glucose more efficiently and block the sugar absorption in the intestine. Further, its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties protect one from possible diabetic complications.

Curcuma longa (Turmeric)

Native to South Asia, this herb works wonder for lowering blood sugar levels. It helps reduce inflammation, boosts the immune system and protects the heart, kidney and other organs; all important aspects for a diabetic patient. This herb supports pancreatic functions thereby improving insulin absorption and production in the body. Curcuma is regarded as one of the most promising herbs for blood sugar control.

As per a review published in the ‘International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism’, turmeric has shown great promise in possibly treating and preventing Type 2 diabetes. The active ingredient curcumin helps improve insulin sensitivity there by signalling the muscle and fat tissues to take up glucose from the blood and also inhibits the production of more glucose from liver (gluconeogenesis). In fact, a research in the journal ‘Diabetes Care’, found that pre-diabetic patients those consumed curcumin regularly were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

Plumbago zeylanica (Ceylon leadwort root)

The Ceylon leadwort root has been used in traditional Asian medicines for its therapeutic properties as an antioxidant, central nervous system stimulant and possible fat burning supplement. Elevated sugar levels can overtime damage the nerve cells and lead to severe health complications. One of the causative factors implicated in the development of diabetes and its complications is the damage induced by free radicals and hence an herb with antioxidant properties would be more beneficial. Recent studies have indicated that the Ceylon leadwort root extract acts as antioxidant and works to lower damage due to free radicals associated with high sugar levels. The antioxidant property of the herb helps to prevent damage to tiny blood vessels that can result in nerve pain, damage to eye or affect blood circulation.

While these herbs have shown great promise in helping one manage and possible improve their diabetes condition, procuring these herbs may be difficult. To solve this concern, Charak presents Diaguard, a complete herbal supplement that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels.

Why choose Diaguard?

Diagurad promotes healthy glucose metabolism and supports pancreatic cells for healthy function. In addition, the herbal components in this formulation help reduce stress in the body as well as aid digestion, thereby increasing nutrient absorption. Further, people with diabetes are at an increased risk for heart disease. Diaguard helps support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, protecting one from future complications and is safe for long term use.

Thus, adopting a healthy lifestyle with a nutritive diet and regular exercise; along with herbal supplement Diaguard, can greatly help maintain healthy sugar levels and protect against severe diabetic complications.

Control your Diabetes the Natural Way

                                                 Control your Diabetes the Natural Way

In the United States alone, around 30 million people or almost 10% of the population have diabetes. Diabetes or high blood sugar sounds alarming isn’t it? Over time, uncontrolled diabetes can lead to several health complications such as heart disease, vision problems, and nerve and kidney damage. However, there is no need to fear the numbers or the side effects caused by the medications if the condition is well managed.

 

The good news is that you can even reverse a diabetes condition if you are still in the borderline stage also known as pre diabetes stage. Are you wondering, what is the answer to reverse a pre diabetic stage or manage diabetes?

The answer is simple; Control your Diabetes the Natural Way.

Understand the signals
Our body sends signals that indicate uncontrolled diabetes.

Rapid weight change: Sudden weight loss or weight gain, without any change in your daily routine can be caused by high blood sugar levels.

Frequent urination: Increased frequency or amount of urination, especially at night, is a prime indicator of elevated sugar levels. When there is excess glucose in the blood, the body tries to flush it out via urine.

Increased thirst:
As the need to urinate increases consequently one feels dehydrated and needs to drink more water. People with diabetes may experience extreme thirst which doesn’t seem to settle after a glass of water.

Increased hunger: Since the insulin hormone isn’t able to break down food into energy and properly utilise the calories consumed, the body continues to feel hungry.
Fatigue: Decreased amount of energy to the cells can result in extreme tiredness or fatigue even after less amount of work.

Unclear vision: Blurry or foggy vision is a common symptom of high blood sugar. If treated on time, this condition is reversible, however, excess sugar build-up over time can lead to severe eye problems.

Treatment Options for Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is largely a lifestyle disease and needs changes in lifestyle for improved insulin function. Doctors prescribe oral medications or insulin to lower glucose levels in the blood.

While these medicines help manage the condition, they are often associated with side effects. This is a major reason why a large number of people are shifting towards herbal supplements. They are natural, do not have adverse effects and over time promote healthy cells in the body to improve one’s health.Herbs recommended for Diabetes
