How Jamun keeps diabetes under control

When it comes to people suffering from diabetes, strict diet rules are important to keep the insulin levels under control. And in this process, it is often suggested that one should consume certain fruits and vegetables. One such seasonal fruit that can do wonders is Jamun. Jamun not only acts as a powerful antioxidant that helps to improve immunity but it is also beneficial in the treatment of diabetes. According to Diabetic Living India, jamun has lesser glucose and fructose count and it is also laden with minerals and provides fewer calories as compared to other seasonal fruits.

According to Unani and Ayurvedic systems, jamun is beneficial in many digestive disorders. It has been proven that the leaves, bark, and seeds are popular for their anti-diabetic properties.

As per traditional Ayurvedic medicine, the key ingredient that shows anti-diabetic action is jamboline, a chemical found in the seeds. Also, it has been proven that the extracts of the bark, seeds and leaves help in the prolonged decrease of blood sugar and glycouria. It has been found that jamun seeds, which are rich in alkaloids, have hypoglycemic effects with up to 30 percent reduction in blood sugar when consumed regularly during the season. It is suggested that diabetic patients should consume 10-12 jamun daily to control their sugar levels, which automatically helps in controlling insulin activity and sensitivity. In addition, experts suggest that jamun seeds powder can be taken as an adjuvant both for type-2 diabetes, insulin-dependent or non-insulin-dependent. According to experts, the use of jamun seeds powder is beneficial at the IFG (Impaired fasting glucose) stage. Consuming seeds powder helps in the regulation of IFG, which further prevents the early onset of diabetes and further conditions. Jamun is also rich in vitamin A and C, which makes it perfect for eye and skin health. It also acts as a coolant and also possesses anti-diarrhea properties, and is beneficial for the digestive system.
