Demonstrated Insulin-Like Properties

In one study, an extract of the leaves of Tinospora was given orally to rabbits deliberately injected with a chemical that disrupts blood sugar levels, and the extract helped to balance the rabbits’ blood sugar levels significantly (Wadood 1992).

Another group of researchers tested a root extract of Tinospora on rats with chemically induced blood sugar problems, and this extract contributed to a significant reduction in the rats’ blood sugar levels as well. The researchers also noted that Tinospora helped boost the activity of hexokinase, a liver enzyme that helps break down and utilize sugar in the body but has been shown in animal experiments to be greatly diminished in animals with blood sugar problems (Stanely 2000).

Reduced Blood Sugar Levels by 73%

Tinospora was tested with another plant known throughout India as a remedy for blood sugar problems: the fruit of Eugenia, a large native evergreen. The researchers wanted to assess the ability of the two plants to help balance blood sugar levels in rats and mice (Grover 2000).

“The results were amazing,” Dr. Gerson said. The formula goes right to the source of blood sugar problems: an ailing pancreas.
The animals were given varying intensities of blood sugar problems—mild, moderate, or severe—and Eugenia helped balance blood sugar levels in the animals with mild blood sugar imbalance by as much as 73% over 15 weeks. Eugenia also significantly helped the animals with moderate blood sugar imbalance: It helped equalize their blood sugar levels by 49% (Grover 2000).

To test the ability of Eugenia to help stabilize blood sugar levels, researchers again injected rabbits with a chemical that significantly elevated their blood sugar levels. They then fed the rabbits Eugenia and reported that the plant had “significant effects”: It helped to balance the rabbits’ raised post-meal blood sugar levels (Kedar 1983).

Reversed Tissue Damage

Research has shown that Aegle marmelose, another ingredient in the herbal formula, enhances the function of pancreatic beta cells specifically.

One experiment on rats with artificially induced blood sugar problems showed a balancing effect by Aegle. When given an extract of this herb, these rats showed a gradual shift in blood sugar concentration to more balanced levels. The more equalized blood sugar levels were maintained as long as the rats were given the extract, and the researchers concluded that Aegle helps relieve blood sugar problems (Ponnachan 1993).

Centuries of Support

This remarkable pancreatic formula features many other plant substances, but I’d like to mention just one more: Gymnema sylvestre. The leaves of this woody climbing plant have been used in Ayurveda to control blood sugar problems for centuries. Indeed, an Ayurvedic text written in the sixth century B.C. recommended it for alleviating the signs of Madhumeha—which means “honey urine,” or unbalanced blood sugar levels, in Sanskrit (Shanmugasundaram 1983).

Gymnema not only helps balance blood sugar levels but also has been shown in various experiments to help correct metabolic derangements in the livers, kidneys, and muscles of rabbits due to unstable blood sugar levels. In addition, it increases the activities of enzymes that help insulin convert sugar into energy in the body.

A Second Coming for a Second Chance

Snatched from centuries of oblivion, this unique blood sugar formula has the potential to change your life for the better.
