In the modern age, diabetes has turned into an epidemic. The condition has a negative impact on the way the human body uses food items to produce energy. The amount of sugar that is consumed is usually broken down to ‘glucose’, a simple form of sugar. With the aid of insulin, a type of hormone produced in the Pancreas’ Beta cells, the glucose enters into the cells. The disorder leads to fatigue, rapid heartbeat, inability to heal fast and more, and can even turn lethal in some cases. Know about some of the Ayurvedic herbs that can treat diabetes.

Gurmaar (Gymnema sylvestrae)
The blood sugar controlling properties of the herb has been known in Ayurveda since ages. Latest studies reveal that it has Gymnemic acid molecules, which can cure diabetes.
