( — December 26, 2018) Winnetka, IL — Diabetes stays incurable despite efforts to find its cure. More and more researchers are investigating this condition due to its high prevalence.

In 2015 in the United States, there were 30.3 million people or 9.4 percent of the population with diabetes.

Researchers stress that approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes. Of the 30.3 million, 23.1 million were diagnosed and 7.2 million were left undiagnosed.

In the elderly population of those aged 65 years and above, 12.0 million seniors were diagnosed and undiagnosed of diabetes.

Health authorities warn that diabetes continues to be the 7th leading cause of death in the United States.

In 2015, it accounted for 79,535 deaths and this was according to the death certificates listing stating it as the underlying cause of death.

Scientists have been exploring the therapeutic potentials of certain natural remedies like ashwagandha, especially in terms of blood sugar control. 

In several clinical trials, it has been found ashwagandha was beneficial for individuals with Type 2 diabetes. 

A study was conducted and it involved 32 diabetics. The use of this adaptogenic herb has been found to result in a significant reduction in fasting blood sugar and HbA1C. 

Scientists discovered that these improvements took place in the 18 subjects who received 250 mg of Ashwagandha twice a day for a month. 

According to a laboratory study involving rats, ashwagandha was able to decrease blood glucose levels in a dose dependent manner. 

There were 35 percent to 45 percent reductions in both blood glucose levels and HbA1C in the diabetic rats. The dose involved was 200 mg/kg of body weight. 

Researchers found its mechanism of action appears to be from its ability to increase insulin sensitivity. There was also a 150 percent increase in liver glycogen, which indicates a higher rate of glycogenesis.

More and more studies are still underway to explore more of the therapeutic goodness of ashwagandha. 

It is worth mentioning this adaptogenic herb has high levels of iron, antioxidants, tannins, potassium, nitrate, fatty acids and glucose.

It also contains steroidal alkaloids, such as sominine, somniferine, withanolides and anferine. It is a rich source of flavonoids, acyl steryl glucosides and lactones. 

Supplements like NutraHerbals Ashwagandha have been found beneficial in delivering the therapeutic goodness of this medicinal herb. 

It is popularized widely by its high potency and purity. This formula continues to gain increasing trust and popularity due to the remarkable effects it offers.
