A Study On Antidiabetic Potential Of Ayurvedic Formulation Triphla
Fruits of Terminalia chebula, Terminalia belerica, Embelica officinalis and their combination name Triphala (equal proportion of above three plant fruits powder) are being used extensively in Indian system of medicine. Triphala, which is rich in gallic acid, vitamin C and flavonoid content, is a highly effective antioxidant and able to reduce oxidative stress in various pathological conditions. Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases characterized by an elevated blood glucose level with disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. In order to elucidate the antidiabetic effects of Triphala, we investigated the effects of 8 weeks treatment of Triphala on glycemic status, in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetic patients were treated with Triphala therapy (5gm/day). Following eight weeks of treatment, Triphala significantly improved fasting blood glucose. This suggested that Triphala has the potential in improving glycemic status and can be used effectively in the treatment of diabetes.
