Top 10 Ayurvedic Herbs to help Mario Win the Diabetic Battle
You must have heard about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, but what does it mean? What’s the difference? Lots of people get confused between both these types and don’t know how to differ one from another. The main thing to remember is that both are to be taken seriously as both are chronic diseases that affect your body’s blood sugar aka glucose levels.
Imagine that Glucose is Mario and needs to get to the princess, i.e, your body’s cells. But to enter the castle where the princess is trapped, Mario must get a key. Insulin is that key. People with Type 1 diabetes don’t produce insulin and thus do not have the key. While people with Type 2 diabetes do not respond to insulin as they should and thus do not make enough insulin later on. They possess a broken key. So, what can we do to get or repair the key? Because it’s very essential for Mario to rescue to Princess as you must know.
Here are Top 10 ayurvedic herbs or its extracts that can help you in diabetes management:
Remember those black oval berries with seeds inside and purple in colour when you take a bite? Remember how it made your tongue blue and felt as if your lips were stuck together? Or maybe you didn’t like it and scrunched up your nose when it came in front of you? Well as it turns out it’s extremely healthy for diabetic patients as it’s low in calories and the polyphenolic ingredients present in it play a significant role in diabetes treatment.
Yes we all hated this in our childhood, yes we scrunched up our noses and yes it’s bitter. We’re all in this together. However it contains a compound that is similar to insulin! Kind of like a duplicate key? Karela helps reduce blood sugar levels in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
Ever heard of Gudmar leaves? Consider it as as a ‘one-up’ in Mario. It acts like a magic potion for diabetic patients as it’s effective for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Gudmar acts as a sugar destroyer as it acts to suppress the sugar compounds by reacting with the taste receptors of the tongue. It also reduces sugar cravings and blood sugar levels by enhancing insulin in the body.
Neem though bitter like Karela, also helps in reducing blood sugar level and thus helps in diabetes treatment.
