(NaturalNews) Various cultures around the world already understand that herbs such as ginger, cinnamon, garlic and turmeric can effectively treat conditions like diabetes. According to research from the biomedical science department at the King Faisal University in Saudi Arabia, garlic may be the most powerful of them all for treating diabetes.

Meanwhile, the American Diabetes Association believes there is no evidence that herbs like cinnamon or garlic effectively treat diabetes

The highly acknowledged American Diabetes Association states that they are "leading the fight to stop diabetes and its deadly consequences."

This mission statement sounds nice, but it is really just a pretty front. It's all talk with no real solution. It's a vague statement of false hope. The American Diabetes Association is really just keeping people in the dark about diabetes. Here's why:

Prior to their lofty mission statement, they establish that "There is no clear evidence of benefit from vitamin or mineral supplements for people with diabetes who do not have underlying vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Nor is there evidence to support the use of cinnamon or other herbs or supplements for the treatment of diabetes."

They couldn't be further from the truth.

As they claim to "fund research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes," people are left wondering what works and where the money's going.

Meanwhile, there is plentiful evidence available showing that herbal, holistic treatments reverse diabetic conditions. In fact, a holistic lifestyle change is the testimony of many natural health advocates.

Still, people with diabetes are left in the dark, not knowing where to start.

Now is the time for well-known organizations like the American Diabetes Association to confess that clear evidence does exist and that herbs like cinnamon and garlic can effectively treat diabetes.

The studies are there. The mechanisms of these powerful natural substances are alive and real.

It's clear that herbs are continually downplayed by known organizations as if these organizations are puppets of a higher order, silenced by some kind of drug profiting industry. It's like there's a witch hunt against natural, healing remedies. Medical professionals aren't even educated about the medicinal benefits of something as simple as garlic.

(Think of the healthcare savings that would ensue if people grew and used garlic instead of running to the doctor for an antibiotic.)

Real, affordable healthcare begins with empowered individuals.

Garlic effectively treats diabetes and oxidative stress

From the Biomedical Science Department at the King Faisal University in Al-Hofuf, Saudi Arabia, comes a comprehensive study on three herbal spices: garlic, ginger and turmeric.

Studying the hypolipidemic, antioxidant and hypoglycemic properties of the spices, the researchers compared the modulating effect that these spices have on metabolic syndrome and oxidative stress of diabetic rats. Injected with streptozotocin nicotinamide, the rats in the study were induced with diabetes.

In the study, the diabetic rats were divided into four groups and examined for 28 days. One group was given 200 mg/kg body weight of garlic bulb. The other groups were given equal amounts of ginger root, turmeric root or a combination of the three herbs. The mixtures were administered in distilled water.
  • At the end of the four weeks, all three herbs alleviated metabolic syndromes of hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia by an average of 80 to 97 percent!
  • The production of insulin increased up to 37 percent in the diabetic rats.
  • Similarly, the rats' antioxidant defense systems were boosted, by a 52 percent increase!
  • Likewise, oxidative stress as seen in lipid peroxidation decreased by 60 - 97 percent in the rats' cells.
In the end, the most effective supplement was garlic and then the three-herb mixture. These supplements modulated the diabetes 10 to 23 percent more effectively than the other mixtures. In conclusion, garlic, ginger and turmeric are a great herbal combination for alleviating the risk of metabolic syndrome and oxidative stress, and garlic bulb is the most powerful tool in this fight, according to this study.
