UPDATES AS OF March 2004
In a Breakthrough Research study "PANCREAS TONIC" published in the OCT. 1998 issue (vol.90 # 10, p.614-618) of the JOURNAL OF THE NATIONAL MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, Washington,DC. USA, PANCREAS TONIC HAS BEEN PROVEN TO REGENERATE PANCREAS ISLET CELLS, thereby RESTORING the NORMAL pancreatic balance in laboratory animals .
Pancreas Tonic helps in the regeneration of the Beta cells of the Islets of the Pancreas thereby restoring the normal pancreas function in laboratory animals.
TREAT THE CAUSE, NOT THE SYMPTOM :
Malfunctioning Pancreas gland. SYMPTOM: People keep treating the symptom while the cause of malfunctioning Pancreas , keeps on deteriorating.
HOW PANCREAS TONIC INGREDIENTS AFFECT PANCREATIC IMBALANCES:
Pterocarpus Marsupeum: Pterocarpus Marsupium is a remarkable herb which, according to a scientific research study published in the Lancet issue 1981, p.759, has actually shown to Regenerate Beta cells of the islet of Langerhans of the Pancreas, which are functional in nature. It restores the normal insulin production of the pancreas and stabilizes pancreatic function.
Gymnema Sylvestre: Gymnema Sylvestre curbs down the sugar craving. Recent pharmacological and clinical studies have shown that Gymnema sylvestre acts on the taste buds in the oral cavity as well as in the intestine. It contains "Gymnemic Acid" & the atomic arrangement of gymnemic acid molecules are similar to that of glucose molecules. Gymnemic acid molecules fill the receptor locations on the taste buds thereby preventing activation of the taste buds by sugar molecules present in the food, thus curbing the sugar craving. Similarly gymnemic acid molecules fill the receptor locations in the absorptive external layers of the intestine, thereby preventing the sugar molecules absorption by the intestine which results in low blood sugar level.
Momardica Charantia: The fruit of Memardica Charantia, is described in the Ayurvedic system of medicine as a tonic, stomachic, stimulant, laxative and anthlemintic and it is recommended in treating gout, rheumatism and in diseases of the liver, spleen and pancreas. It is very effective in normalizing the pancreatic function.
Syzigium Cumini: A number of clinical studies have shown Syzigium Cumini helps pancreatic function. It sensitizes the pancreas to produce more insulin and also reduces cell resistance to insulin, which helps to Increase glucose uptake by the cells. It is also very effective in lowering high cholesterol.
Trigonella Foenum graceum: Commonly known as 'Fenugreek', this herb delays the glucose absorption by the intestine thereby reducing the after meals glucose peak levels.
Azardirachta Indica: Studies have shown that it decreases the blood sugar level and prevents Adrenaline-induced hyperglycaemia.
Ficus Racemosa: Studies have shown that dietary fibers of Ficus racemosa reduce total lipids, cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids of the liver. Tinospora Cordifolia: Giloe (Tinospora cordifolia) has long been known in Ayurvedic literature as a tonic, vitalizer and as a remedy for blood sugar and metabolic disorders. It has been used to reduce the blood glucose level.
Aegle Marelose: In clinical studies Aegle Marelose has been shown to improve the functional state of pancreatic beta cells as well as in increasing the uptake of glucose by the cells.
Cinnamomum Tamala: Commonly known as 'Cinnamon', it helps in the digestion of foods.
