Medicinal Herbs Show Ability to Replace Diabetes Medication without Side Effects

Researchers from University of Mississippi's School of Pharmacy have conducted an extensive analysis of medicinal plants and proved once again that herbs can replace medications - now diabetes medications. They found that a number of herbs safely modulate cellular PPAR receptors - which means they help regulate glucose, insulin and fat metabolism.

The researchers screened extracts from a total of 263 species of herbs from 94 plant families. They found that eight of the extracts activated the PPARα (Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor - alpha) and 22 of the plant extracts activated the PPARγ (Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor - gamma).
