AMPALAYA PLUS CAPSULE AND TEA
Diabetes, cardiovascular illnesses and degenerative arthritic conditions have now become major public health problems that is set to double by the next decade. Nutraceuticals offer long term benefits to diabetes with the strongest effect if used in combination. Ampalaya Plus is an innovative product composed of 3 herbs: ampalaya, banaba and luyang dilaw.
Ampalaya Plus is gathered from clean, pollution-free farms. Its main ingredient Ampalaya has been proven to help in diabetes.
Ampalaya (Momordica charantia) is a nutritional vegetable listed as a medicinal plant in the Philippine Pharmacopoeia. The bitter alkaloid is momodicin (a triterpene glycoside) is the active principle. Radioisotope labeled glucose study had shown that ampalaya increases the utilization of glucose by the liver. A polypeptide-p had also been identified with insulin-like properties and induces the capacity to regenerate pancreatic beta cells in animal models. Ampalaya also has lipid lowering properties in the presence or absence of diabetes with the consequent decrease in triglycerides and cholesterol.
Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) is a herb tradionally used as a diuretic. It is known to lower blood sugar and helps in reducing weight. The active principle is corosolic acid, a triterpenoid compound, which increases glucose transport. In animal and cell culture studies, there were reductions in blood sugar levels and normalization of insulin levels. With the reduction of blood glucose comes a reduction in body weight even without dietary restrictions.
Luyang Dilaw (Curcuma longa) is a strong natural anti-oxidant. It has been known that turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. The anti-inflammatory property may be compared to that of hydrocortisone. This herb is also reported to protect the liver and help maintain liver function in detoxifying (remove toxins) the body. There is evidence to show that luyang dilaw can reduce COX-2 mRNA expression and decrease synthesis of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), a factor in mechanism of pain, especially joint and muscle pains.
