Chinese Herb Gan Cao shown to treat Diabetes

The diagnosis rate of diabetes continues to rise despite widespread medical knowledge, pharmaceutical treatment, and improved understanding of the impact that diet has on the course of disease. Following the current trends, 10% of the world’s population can be expected to suffer from diabetes by 2030. An inability to regulate blood sugar can lead to far more serious problems like loss of vision, widespread nerve damage, and an inability to fight off infection that can turn a tiny cut into a potential threat of gangrene.
Fortunately, help is at hand for diabetes suffers. Gan Cao (licorice) has been used by Chinese Medicine for millenia in the treatment of diabetes or as it is described in CM, “thirsting & wasting disease. The ability of Gan Cao to treat diabetes has recently been confirmed by a study in Cornell University in which the active components of Gan Cao were described as being “structurally new and powerful antidiabetics with unprecedented effects for a dietary molecule.”

The benefits of Gan Cao are not limited to the treatment of diabetes, Gan Cao is also commonly used in the treatment of the following diseases:

  • Peptic ulcers
  • Canker sores (Apthous ulcers)
  • Eczema
  • Dyspepsia (indigestion, GERD)
  • Upper respiratory infections (cold, cough)
  • Weight loss
So why suffer needlessly and risk the serious side effect of diabetes when you can available of the benefits of Gan Cao and Chinese Herbal Medicine.
