How Natural Health can help you and what Natural Products are on offer for insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome?

Due to the role of inflammatory cytokines in blocking the PI3K insulin signaling pathway, therapies that modulate inflammation are showing great promise in the management of insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome.  The herb hops and Acacia arabica (acacia), modulate inflammatory signaling pathways implicated in insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome. A blinded placebo controlled study in 91 Metabolic Syndrome patients over 12 weeks has found this blend of hops and acacia was associated with a 39.1% reduction of fasting insulin, compared to an increase of 5.7% in controls. Also, fasting triglycerides decreased by 22.4% compared to an increase of 6% in controls.

Herbs that improve insulin signaling are pomoeabatatas (Caiapo), Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon) and Panax ginseng (Korean ginseng). They help to manage blood sugar imbalances associated with fatigue, mood symptoms and sugar cravings. A recent study has shown that consuming 3 g of cinnamon daily reduces postprandial serum insulin levels.Caiapo is included in this formula as it has been shown, when this unique potato was included in their diets, to decrease fasting blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetic patients.8 Korean ginseng has also shown metabolic benefits in type 2 diabetics: during an eight week trial it was associated with reduced fasting blood glucose, reduced body weight, reduced hemoglobin glycation and elevated mood, when compared to placebo.
