About 422 million people worldwide have diabetes and 1.5 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year. Both the number of cases and the prevalence of diabetes have been steadily increasing over the past few decades.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. There are primarily two interrelated problems in diabetes – your pancreas does not produce enough insulin that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells. When the body has an impairment in regulating and uses sugar, this long-term condition results in too much sugar circulating in the bloodstream. Eventually, high blood sugar levels can lead to disorders of the circulatory, nervous and immune systems. Besides that, high blood sugar can damage your beta cells (that help your body to create and release insulin). Damaged beta cells cause both a decrease in insulin production and an increase in your body’s resistance to insulin.
There’s no cure for diabetes, but losing weight, eating well and exercising can help you manage the disease. Besides that, the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the management of diabetes is well known in developed countries and is practiced to some extent in industrialized countries. Over 400 plants and compounds have so far been evaluated for use in diabetes patients and over 1200 have been claimed to be remedies for the same illness. The world-wide trend for the use of CAMs in diabetes has increased with an overall prevalence ranging between 30% - 57% in some studies.
Blood Sugar Health
Powerlife Diareso5 features 5 active ingredients including Gymnema sylvestre, Aegle marmelos, Asphaltum, Eugenia jambolana and Ficus bengalensis. All these herbal extracts were then mixed with special formulated liquid containing Momordica charantia fruit powder, Phyllanthus niruri plant powder, Azadirachta indica leaf powder, Pterocarpus marsupium stem powder, Embilica officinalis fruit powder, Terminalia chebula fruit powder and Terminalia Belerica fruit powder. Impregnation of the properties of the liquid media to the herbal extracts leads to unique and suitable physico – chemical changes in the herbal extracts, hence the potentiation of therapeutic efficacy, providing antidiabetic and antilipidemic effects.
All 5 active ingredients Gymnema sylvestre, Aegle marmelos, Asphaltum, Eugenia jambolana and Ficus bengalensis have been used in Ayurveda for diabetes. The synergistic action of these active ingredients helps in decrease absorption of sugar in intestine, maintain blood sugar levels and support pancreas health. It also helps to reduce sugar cravings.
As diabetes is known to be associated with dyslipidemia and patients suffering from diabetic dyslipidemia are considered to be at 2-4 times higher risk of cardiovascular complications. Aegle marmelos has been reported to effectively reduced the oxidative stress and thus modulate the diabetes status and/or prevent its complications. Besides that, Asphaltum was effective in improving lipid profile, whilst Ficus bengalensis provide hepato and renal protective effects.
On the other hand, Eugenia jambolana has been ascribed to possible regeneration of beta cells, increase insulin secretion as well as modulation of the activity of intestinal glucose transporter. Thus, Eugenia jambolana is known to recover serum insulin levels and glycated hemoglobin levels.
