(Natural News) A group of researchers conducted a systematic review that revealed the potential use of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) as a treatment for diabetes mellitus. This study, which was published in Herbal Medicine: Open Access, reviewed articles that were published about coriander treatment of diabetes mellitus in animal models.
- Many studies are exploring the use of herbs, such as coriander, in treating diabetes mellitus since existing treatments cause unwanted side effects.
- Researchers looked for relevant articles in PubMed, using the keywords “Coriandrum sativum” and diabetes.
- Articles were filtered based on the following inclusion criteria:
- Biological activity: antihyperglycemic or antidiabetic activity of coriander
- Plant material: coriander extract
- Study design: experiments done in vitro and/or in vivo
- Language: articles written in English
- The results were further filtered to exclude ethnobotanical and ethnopharmacological surveys, case reports, and expert opinion or consensus statements since these made use of coriander mixed with another product.
- Only five studies were able pass all of the given criteria.
From their review of the five studies, researchers concluded that coriander can potentially reduce blood sugar level in diabetic animals.
