Our  herbal  formulation contains 16 distinct herbs. The detailed description and the properties of the herbals are as given below. 
Momordica Charantia 

Momordica charantia ( 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 India. 

Characteristics & Constituents 

Momordica 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.

The 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 P-insulin ( 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. Momordica charantiaincreases the healthy regeneration of beta cells in the pancreas hence increasing the secretion of insulin from the pancreas.

The 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 M. 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.

Acacia catechu

Acacia catechu is a moderate sized tree, 9-12 m high, with a dark colored bark and rough young shoots.

Characteristics & Constituents

Acacia 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.

Curcuma longa

Curcuma longa 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.

The plant is a native of southern Asia or China and is cultivated extensively throughout the warmer parts of the world.
Curcuma 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)..

Phyllanthus Emblica Linn

Phyllanthus Emblica 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.

Actions and Uses

Phyllanthus Emblica Linn has been widely used in the treatment of Diabetes in India.
Alcoholic 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. 

Pterocarpus marsupium Roxb 

Pterocarpus marsupium Roxb (from the family Leguminoceae) is a large tree that commonly grows in the central, western, and southern parts of Vietnam, Indonesia, India and Sri Lanka.
It 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.

Propterols, 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 beta cell protective and regenerative properties as well as blood glucose lowering activity. 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. 
Cinnamomum tamala

Cinnamomum 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. Hypoglycaemic 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 rats.

Singh et 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.
