A recent study, published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, reveals that an Indian herb or fruit supplement named “Ojamin” works wonder for curing diabetes naturally. It can serve as an excellent natural option for managing diabetes when lifestyle changes alone aren’t cutting it.
Ojamin is a popular anti-diabetic dietary supplement in India. It offers fewer side effects and has a lower cost compared to other synthetic drugs. It is a mixture of aqueous extracts of different herbs including Gooseberries, Fenugreek, Bael, Turmeric, Haritaki, Java Plus, Neem, Basil, Okra, Blueberry Extract, and Watermelon Seed etc.
Diabetes, in particular, Type-II diabetes, is a tricky illness to deal with. Poorly controlled diabetes can cause problems like stroke, blindness, glaucoma, high blood pressure, foot problems, nerve damage, heart disease, and kidney damage, among others.
In most of the cases, a healthy diet and regular exercise hamper its progress and eases its symptoms. However, in other cases, people opt for anti-diabetic drugs like Metformin to manage the situation. These synthetic drugs may offer side effects to the patients which sometimes worsens the situation.
Some of these drugs also elevate the mortality rate with respect to the disease. Thus, researchers have long been looking for natural ways to fight such diseases making this the most prudent approach for many people.
The respective study shows Ojamin is not only effective at managing Type-II diabetes, but it actually works better when used alone than in combination with Metformin. The researchers used rats, with induced diabetes, in order to evaluate the efficacy of the supplement. The rodents were randomly divided into groups as follow,
- A control that ate regular food
- A diabetic control group
- The group fed with Metformin and Ojamin separately or together
The given doses of Ojamin were equivalent to the adult doses typically used by humans. The researchers analyzed the blood, urine, weight, cholesterol, triglycerides, and other metrics to observe the effects of the supplement.
It was revealed that Ojamin causes significant improvements in the lipid profiles of diabetic rats. It lowered their levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and exhibited notable anti-diabetic and anti-hyperlipidemic effects. However, it was seen that Ojamin and Metformin together did not control diabetes as effectively as Ojamin did it alone.
The researchers encourage and are looking forward to further studies that may determine how exactly does Ojamin manifest these effects. In addition, they are exploring the possibility of increasing its effectiveness to better fight this widespread illness.
This is great news because Ojamin is asserted free from GMOs, pesticides, additives, and sugars. People can take it as a capsule or a tonic easily with fewer side effects.
Another study reveals a promising natural treatment for diabetes. It is by a compound known as Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane can be found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli. Moreover, research states that Ginseng can also help control blood sugar. Another study found that chromium supplements help diabetic patients to improve their insulin sensitivity.
More than 30 million Americans are already dealing with the disease. In addition, 1.5 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed every year in the United States. There is an emergently greater need for effective and safe treatments for the situation. This study highlights the incredible potential of herbal solutions in combating the illness.
