(Natural News) Herbal medicines are often used for treating diabetic patients. In some instances, different herbs are used together to potentially improve efficacy. In this study, which was published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine, a capsule containing a combination of Terminalia chebula, Commiphora mukul, and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) was shown to improve blood glucose level and lipid content.
- One of the major risk factors for coronary heart disease is unhealthy lipid levels in the bloodstream.
- C. mukul is a medicinal plant commonly used for treating diseases like hyperlipidemia. This application of C. mukul has also been proven through clinical trials.
- Previous studies have shown that myrrh and T. chebula can regulate blood sugar levels.
- The effects of a capsule with these three herbs were tested through a clinical trial involving 86 female Type 2 diabetic patients from ages 40 to 60 years old.
- After the treatment period of three months different blood parameters, such as glucose, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were observed.
The results of the study showed that the combination of T. chebula, C. mukul, and myrrh can significantly improve blood sugar and lipid levels without having any adverse effects. These prove that their combination is a safe and effective treatment for hyperlipidemic Type 2 diabetes.
