herbal formulation contains 16 distinct herbs. The detailed description
and the properties of the herbals are as given below.
( also known as Bitter Melon ) a
member of the Cucurbitaceae family is a tropical plant currently distributed
across the globe. Momordica charantia has been used by natives for
cancer, diabetes and many infectious diseases.This plant is a native of
charantia fruits showed the presence of glycosides, saponins,
alkaloids, reducing sugars, resins, phenolic constituents, fixed oil and
free acids. The presence of an unidentified alkaloid with Rf.0.098 and
5-hydroxytryotamine was also reported (Dhalla et al., 1961). The 5HT content
was reported to be 0.08g of the dry tissue as base.
ether extract residue of the alcoholic concentrate from the leaves of Momordica
charantia was reported to reveal hypoglycemic
activity comparable to that of Tolbutamide (Tolbutamide stimulates
the secretion of insulin by the pancreas) . The pure protein termed as
( polypeptide-P ) extracted from Momordica charantia fruits
in crystalline form was tested, in a controlled clinical trial, for its
efficacy as a hypoglycemic agent in 9 patients of Type 1 diabetes
mellitus. The extract of Momordica
charantia injected subcutaneously into type 1 diabetic patients
had the same blood sugar lowering impact as that of insulin injection.
Essentially the P-insulin ( polypeptide-P) acts on the pancreas,
rejuvenates it and activates the dead insulin
producing beta cells present in the islets in pancreas.
charantiaincreases the healthy regeneration
of beta cells in the pancreas hence increasing
the secretion of insulin from the pancreas.
juice of Momordica charantia, administered orally in different doses
produced hypoglycemia in normal and alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits. When
the glucose tolerance test was carried out, blood sugar level declined
during the initial 1 hour and 15 minutes in the rabbits which were given
charantia fruit juice. A hypoglycemic response of Momordica charantia
fruit has been reported in normal and alloxan diabetic dogs. Charantin,
isolated from M. charantia fruits led to prolonged hypoglycaemia in varying
doses in normal fasting rabbits. The fall being gradual and steady for
4 hr.. and then recovering slowly. Charantin given in dose of 50 mg/kg
orally lowered the blood sugar by 42 per cent at the fourth hour.
catechu is a moderate sized tree, 9-12 m high, with a dark
colored bark and rough young shoots.
catechu contains 2-12 % catechins, 25-33 % phlobatannin, 20-30
% gummy matter, quercitrin and quercitin. The acacia tree has epicatechin
that is distinct from catechin in gum gambhir. Epicatechinforms
white cellular crystals which are soluble in hot water and alcohol and
give a green color with ferric salts. Epicatechin
is one the most powerful anti oxidant and helps stop and reverse the damage
to the pancreatic cells.
is a native of southern Asia or China and is cultivated extensively throughout
the warmer parts of the world.
has been used in Indian and Chinese systems of medicine for a long
time. It is listed in an Assyrian herbal dating from about 600 BC and is
also mentioned by Dioscorides. Both the East and the West have held its
medicinal properties in high regard.
longa rhizome extract showed blood glucose lowering activity in experimental,
induced- diabetic rats. After 3 and 6
hrs of curcuma injection (10 mg), 37.2 percent and 54.5 percent fall were
observed respectively in the glucose levels (Tank, R. et al., Indian Drugs,
1990, v., 27(11), 587-589)..
Linnis wild or cultivated throughout tropical India, Vietnam and
China from the foot of the Himalayas up to an altitude of 1000m.
The fruit is a rich source
of ascorbic acid- (Vitamin C). Studies have shown that it is more quickly
assimilated into the body than the synthetic vitamin C. Ten grams of fresh
fruits contain 600-900 mg of Vitamin C.
Emblica Linn has been widely used in the treatment of Diabetes in India.
extract of the plant (1 gm/kg) has shown an increase in the cardiac glycogen
and a decrease in serum GOT, GPT and LDH in isoprotenol pretreated rats,
suggesting a cardio- protective action. It showed a reduction in serum
cholesterol levels and a significant antiatherogenic effect.
isolated from the plant, show antibacterial activity against gram positive
bacteria. Epicatechin was tested for anti diabetic activity in albino rats;
it protected against alloxan-induced diabetes.Pterocarpus marsupium
demonstrates some very unique features, which include
cell protective and regenerative properties as well as blood glucose lowering
These effects have been reproduced in numerous animal and human trials.
A clinical trial after meals was carried out in 20 diabetic patients and
hypoglycemic activity was observed with no side effects.
(from the family Leguminoceae) is a large tree that commonly grows in the
central, western, and southern parts of Vietnam, Indonesia, India and Sri
has been traditionally used to help maintain optimum sugar metabolism.
Alcoholic and aqueous extracts of the plant produced a significant
reduction in the blood sugar level in
rabbits. The decoction of bark has significant effect on serum cholesterol
in hyper- cholesterolemic rabbits.
tamala is also known as Indian bay
leaf. The tough and three veined leaves are very popular in Northern India
The essential oil from the leaves contains eugenol and cinnamic aldedehyde.
and hypolipidaemic effects of Cinnamomum tamala
leaves leaves have been well documented. Oral administration of 50 percent
ethanolic extract of Cinnamomum tamala leaves significantly lowered
the plasma glucose levels in normoglycaemic and streptozotocin hyperglycemic
al report that 20 patients of non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus
with polyuria, polydipsia and polyphagia, were treated with powder of Cinnamomum
tamala leaves in the dose of 2 TSF, t.d.s. The response was estimated
on the parameters of Joslin's clinic. 50% cases were controlled well, 33.33%
better and remaining showed marked improvement
The hypoglycemic effect of C. tamala in patients with maturity onset diabetes
(non insulin dependent) was tested and probed using the parameters on fasting
and post-prandial blood sugar. Its role in the management of diabetes
mellitus is stressed. Cinnamom also enhances insulin efficiency in Type
1 Diabetes patients.
