Ayurvedic medicine shown to greatly benefit diabetics
05/28/2019 // Michelle Simmons // Views

A study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements looked at the potential of marking nut tree (Semecarpus anacardium) in preventing cardiovascular complications caused by diabetes. The study was carried out by researchers at the University of Madras in Chennai, India.

  • Marking nut tree is a medicinal plant used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat various health problems.
  • For the study, the Indian researchers assessed the cardioprotective effect of the plant against altered cardiac energy metabolism in Type 2 diabetes rats.
  • They induced Type 2 diabetes in rats by feeding them with a high-fat diet for two?weeks followed by two intraperitoneal injections of streptozotocin drug at a dose of 35 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) body weight.
  • Twelve weeks later, the rats developed cardiovascular complication.
  • The researchers studied the effects of marking nut extract on glucose metabolizing enzymes and mitochondrial complex enzymes using biochemical assays.
  • They found that marking nut extract effectively improved the altered cardiac energy metabolism in diabetic rats.
  • They noted that the cardioprotective effect of the extract may be due to its ability to improve glucose utilization and control the oxidative stress under diabetic conditions.

These findings suggest that nut milk extracts from the marking nut tree may be used to prevent cardiovascular problems in people with diabetes.
