Rosemary And Oregano Can Lower Blood Sugar And Stop Diabetes
Diabetes affects over 8% of USA people and increases by the day. As to the Centers for Disease Control, this skyrocketed in the last 30 years, and rose to 176% in 80s up to 2011.
Now it is even more, and safe methods for curing exist, so experts say that aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean are the key.
THERE IS A NEW RESEARCH: OREGANO AND ROSEMARY WORK LIKE MEDICINAL DRUGS AND ARE SAFER
In a study made by the experts of the American Chemical Society was said in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that these herbs can inhibit enzymes like dipeptidyl peptidase IV for more insulin. Protein for insulin signaling, tyrosine phosphatase made experts think that these herbs can prevent and cure diabetes.
The lead expert, Elvira Gonzalez de Mejia said some cases of diabetes can be controlled with workouts and diet, but people lack this discipline. Also, diabetic drugs can cost a lot and have side effects. But, herbs are safer, natural and cost less as they give better results.
THE BEST PROPERTIES OF OREGANO AND ROSEMARY
If you cannot get them fresh, no worries, but always opt for fresh ones and organic. The supermarket dry herbs are just as good also and lower the sugar too.
Experts have tested the effects of greenhouse grown and commercially dry herbs and they said the first ones had more good polyphenols and flavonoids. Still, the commercial dried extracts were just as good for this aim.
Of the different kinds of these main types, the commercial Greek oregano or origanum vulgare, the commercial Mexican or lippie graveolens and both rosemary types, greenhouse and commercial (rosmarinic officinalis) were the absolute best.
FLAVONOIDS AND POLYPHENOLS IN THESE HERBS TARGET ANY INFLAMMATION
Due to their phytochemiclas, these 2 herbs fight inflammation. They have gallic acid and some samples even have 430 micrograms for every milligram dry weight. This acid fights fungi, viruses and is chemoprotective, so it is the best antioxidant too.
An animal study of 2014, published in International Journal of Inflammation, said gallic acid proved well on lab rats with sepsis and increased the lipid peroxidation or damaging of fat degradation.
Also both these herbs have antioxidant rosmarinic acid too, volatile oils like cineol, borneol and camphene and also C and A.
ROSEMARY ALSO ALLEVIATES AGE COGNITIVE DECLINE
The rosemary benefits are seen to inhibiting diabetes and making blood sugar leveled. By reducing this oxidation stress in the brain part which controls memory, you also get better cognition that is impaired as we age.
As to animal studies at Saint Louis university Medical School, a few rosemary and spearmint extracts made better cognition and performance in mice with age related cognition issues.
The team of experts had hopes that these herbs can reduce cognition issues in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.
