Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body is unable to naturally balance blood sugar levels. Instead, high blood sugar levels can cause serious damage to the body. To help combat this ill effect, try one supplement known to help diabetics.
Dr Sarah Brewer has noticed how a blend of Ayurvedic herbs – found inside a CuraLin supplement – can have a “range of beneficial effects on glucose control”.
The doctor noted how those who take CuraLin supplements experienced an improvement in glucose control and, in some cases, “normalises within four weeks”.
The CuraLin supplement contains 10 Ayurvedic herbs: swertia chirata, turmeric, fenugreek, gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, picrorhiza kurroa, syzygium cumini, tinospora cordifolia, melia azadirachta and amla.
“Bitter melon contains a chain of amino acids known as polypeptide-p,” explained Dr Brewer.
She added that bitter melon is “structurally similar to insulin”, therefore it “reduces glucose absorption from the diet and reduces the production of glucose in the liver”.
The overall effect being that blood glucose (i.e. blood sugar) levels improve.
Ingredients, such as turmeric, fenugreek and amala “activate insulin receptors to reduce insulin resistance”, and they also improve “insulin release from the pancreas”.
Dr Brewer continued: “Gymnema sylvestre reduces sensitivity to sweet tastes and suppresses sugar cravings.
“While picrorhiza kurroa inhibits an enzyme (alpha-amylase) that breaks down dietary carbohydrates to slow the release of dietary sugars.”
Together, these herbs help to produce an effective response to improve blood glucose control and energy levels.
