Garcinia and Blood glucose control

November 3, 2010

Work by Kirana, and  Srinivasan (found here) indicated that an aqueous extract of Garcinia significantly decreased both the fasting and postprandial blood glucose in type 2 diabetic rats.  The extract also restored the erythrocyte GSH in type 2 diabetic animals.  Drug at higher dose had a more pronounced effect.  Restoring the erythrocyte GSH, an intracellular anti-oxidant in diabetes, will be beneficial specially by preventing the risk of developing complications.

Garcinia is a component of our SLIM & FIT Infusion.
