Herbs like Gymnema sylvestre, Pterocarpus marsupium, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Casearia esculenta and Eugenia jambolana are known for their anti-diabetic effect. These herbs along with almost 30 others are present in Diabecon - a herbal and mineral ayurvedic blend manufactured by Himalaya herbals.
In addition to being anti-diabetic, these herbs have beta cell protective and regenerative properties. They help repair the damage to the beta cells and actually repopulate the islets of langerhans in the pancreas. This aids in promotion of normal insulin secretion.
Diabecon acts like insulin and helps in glycemic control. It reduces blood sugar levels and produced significant decreases in both fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels in newly diagnosed patients as well as those taking OHAs. Diabecon also rids the body particularly the b-cells of oxidants and harmful agents so cell recovery and regeneration is faster and more efficient. It also acts as an antioxidant further protecting b-cells from damage and oxidative stress. Studies have shown that Diabecon also helped to protect the lens of the eye from sugar induced cataract.
