People suffering from diabetes can now turn to natural products to regulate their blood sugar levels, thanks to the recent surge of studies that list the harmful effects of synthetic anti-diabetic drugs. In some cases, patients combine these natural forms for its reported synergistic effects. In a study, published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine, researchers investigated the safety and efficacy of a myrobalan (Terminalia chebula), Indian bdellium-tree (Commiphora mukul), and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) in treating hyperlipidemia in Type 2 diabetes patients.
The number of people who suffer from Type 2 diabetes outnumbers those who suffer from Type 1 by over 50 percent. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the development of insulin resistance. Because of this, the body will try to compensate by increasing insulin production, but after some time, the body won’t be able to keep up. This leads to insufficient insulin and high glucose levels……”
