Herbal teas: Addition to therapy of diabetes
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacognosy
Keywords: plants; plant extracts; traditional remedies; hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic activity; herbal teas
More than 800 plants have been used for the traditional treatment of diabetes. Modern experimental and clinical trials brought a proof of efficacy for some of those plants. It is believed that plants must be considered as excellent candidates for future studies on determining the mechanisms of their hypoglycemic activity, as well as for isolation and identification of active hypoglycemic substances. Meanwhile, there are no a lot of herbal remedies for the treatment of diabetes. Today, mainly herbal teas are used. The components of teas are drugs containing: polysaccharides (Guar gummi), tannins, bitter constituents (Centaurii herba, Taraxaci radix T. herba), chromium salts (Phaseoli pericarpium, Myrtilli folium) and guanidine derivatives (Galegae herba). Herbal teas have to be used as additional therapy of diabetes under medicinal control.
