Most of the people around the globe are living with diabetes. According to International diabetes federation, approximately 463 million adults (20-79 years) were reported with diabetes; by 2045 this is expected to rise to 700 million…!!!
The sedentary lifestyle and improper food habits are considered as the main culprits in the pathophysiology of this major metabolic syndrome, in addition to the genetic factors. Generally, people are gradually falling into diabetes from an unnoticed prediabetic stage, since these stages do not create noticeable health issues. Once diagnosed with diabetes, a lifelong administration of synthetic anti diabetic drugs along with little change in life style is consideredas the best available treatment of choice, to date. More often these synthetic medicines are leading to several other disorders due to their untoward effects. This is why the expert committee of World Health Organization has recommended researches to derive safe anti-hyperglycaemic agents of plant origin, especially from traditional medicinal herbals and food components.
DiaCinnTMis one such herbal formulation featuring the synergistic combination of Guduchi/Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia Linn) and patented extract of cinnamon (ProcynCi®). Both the herbs are mentioned as the best anti-hyperglycemic agents in the ancient Indian medical science, Ayurveda. In the DiaCinnTM formulation, well-standardised extracts that are shown to work against insulin resistance and regeneration of pancreatic β-cells are used. Being a promising nutraceutical for prediabetic and diabetic management, DiaCinnTMhelps in balancing the postprandial blood sugar hikes and maintains healthy blood glucose levels. It also supports the general well being and body’s natural host defense mechanism.
