New Delhi: A study by Indian researchers found that the chronic disease condition can be managed within 14 days with the help of ayurveda formulations like BGR-34, along with a balanced diet and a change in lifestyle, including a morning walk daily.
BGR-34 is a trademark that includes powder of six plants: Daruharidra (Berberis aristata), giloy (Tinospora cordifolia), vijaysar (Pterocarpus marsupium), gudmar (Gymnema sylvestre), manjeestha (Rubia cordifolia) and methi (fenugreek) . This combination was chosen from an "in-depth study of over 500 renowned ancient herbs.”
The study, conducted by a team of researchers from Patna-based Government Ayurvedic College and Hospital on a patient suffering from high levels of blood sugar, has been published in the International Ayurvedic Medical Journal (IAMJ).
The team, led by Assistant Professor Prabhas Chandra Pathak, prescribed the patient a combination of research-based traditional medicines, including herbal formulations like BGR-34, Arogyavardhani Vati, Chandraprabhavati, cholesterol-reducing drugs, lifestyle adjustments and a specific diet for two weeks.
After 14 days, the treatment was slightly altered. During this time, the patient showed significant improvement; for instance, the sugar level, which was 254 mg/dl at the time of admission, came down to 124 mg/dl.
It was found that anti-diabetic herbal properties enriched in Daruharidra, Giloe, Vijaysar, Gudmar, Methi and Majishtha in the BGR-34 helped cut down the sugar level in the blood. This medicine has been prepared by the country's premier research institute, CSIR, after extensive research.
Dr Sanchit Sharma, Executive Director of Aimil Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of BGR-34, pointed out that since diabetic patients have to depend on lifetime medicines, the outcome of the study holds significance.
"These herbal preparations also have elements to increase immunity as well as anti-oxidant levels," Sharma added.
Researchers said that during the study, the patient was also recommended an hour's walk daily.
In fact, earlier, a study by the AIIMS in Delhi found that BGR-34 is effective not only in reducing sugar but obesity as well.
