It is not easy to fight health problems, especially when you need to undergo painful allopathic treatments. It is even worse when patients have to suffer the side effects of modern medicines. The same thing holds good for diabetes that is increasingly becoming a common disease in India. With more than 63 million diabetics, it is not surprising that India is known as the ‘world capital of diabetes’.
As modern medicines for diabetic treatment result in side effects and insulin resistance, people tend to look for a better alternative. Hence, Ayurveda that has its ancient roots in India is proving its widespread application in treating diabetes and pre-diabetes effectively. The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda has its tried and tested remedies both in Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. To make it clear, Type 1 Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas fails to produce insulin or produces inadequate insulin. Type 2 Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body fails to absorb the blood sugar. If diabetes is not treated properly it can lead to other serious health problems including heart diseases, strokes, liver damage, kidney failure, cataract and more.
Ayurveda has a treasure of natural ingredients that when blended in the exact proportions can help control diabetes. So here is a list of those ingredients from our mother nature.
Top 7 Natural Ingredients To Control Diabetes
Indian Blackberry or Black Plum (Jamun)
Black Plum is one of the most powerful ingredients that can help control blood sugar level. The entire plant of Black Plum including the leaves, berry and seeds are considered as a superfood for diabetics. Thanks to antioxidants like anthocyanins, ellagic acid and hydrolyzable tannins. Research indicates that the seeds of Jamun have hypoglycemic effects which shows they have the capacity to reduce blood sugar and urine sugar.
The use of the bitter leaf of neem traces back to centuries. Neem improves insulin receptor sensitivity in Beta cells and naturally reduces the blood glucose levels. In the point of fact, it has been found that neem reduces the need for insulin by up to 60%. Hence, neem is one such ingredient that reduces your dependence on hypoglycemic drugs.
Bitter Gourd (Karela)
Bitter Gourd contains a biochemical known as Charantin which helps lower the blood glucose levels. The vegetable is effective in controlling diabetes as it has the tendency to regulate glucose metabolism in the whole body. Additionally, it enhances insulin secretion to prevent insulin resistance. Though it cannot replace insulin treatment completely, it can provide beneficial results in both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Indian gooseberry is loaded with Vitamin C that works as a diabetes-fighting antioxidant. The juice of the amla improves the functioning of the pancreas that produces insulin to reduce the blood sugar in the body.
For thousands of years, Aloe vera plant has been used for its healing properties. Traditionally, Arabia has been using the dried sap of the plant to treat diabetes. Research suggests that Aloe vera juice can lower blood sugar level in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Thanks to phytosterols that are known to have anti-hyperglycemic effects. Furthermore, the juice also aids in lowering the blood fat and swelling which are common side effects of diabetes.
Holy Basil (Tulsi)
Holy basil is abundant with antioxidants and essential oils that fight insulin resistance. To be more precise, the plant contains eugenol, methyl eugenol and caryophyllene that aid the pancreatic beta cells (cells responsible to store and release insulin) to function properly. In addition, researches prove that tulsi promotes insulin production and reduces post-meal blood glucose levels by 17% and fasting glucose levels by 7%.
