Diabetic Herbs

Yacon and Pata de vaca are two natural diabetes herbs from Peru. They are found in a new natural diabetes herbal supplement from Amazon Botanicals. Yacon is a unique plant in that it is sweet but is low in calories and contains oligofructose a sugar that is not absorbed into the body because the carbohydrates in Yacon are in the form of insulin not starch.

Pata de vaca, meaning literally “the cow’s hoof” is a small plant that grows to a height of 5-9 meters and has leaves that are shaped like a cow’s hoofs. Pata de vaca is an important medicinal herb in Brazil. The plant is a diabetes herb that has been used for over sixty five years to control blood sugar. Its effects are supposed to be so good that it has earned the sobriquet “vegetable insulin”. In Peru and Brazil it has been clinically studied and is used extensively as a natural diabetes herb.

“Sugar Control” combines the goodness of these two natural diabetes herbs to provide you with a reliable, safe and natural treatment for diabetes. Amazon Botanicals uses fresh recently harvested herbs either organically grown or wildcrafted. Other manufacturers who procure the material from middlemen may, however, be using stale or adulterated herbs that are unable to give the benefits.

Two forms of these natural diabetes herbs are available – tea and tincture. The tincture is prepared by extracting 100% pure Yacon and Pata de vaca in distilled water and 40% alcohol. The recommended dosage is 60 drops (2 ml) twice a day, taken under the tongue or added to water or juice.

The tea is prepared from 100% pure Yacon and Pata de vaca leaves and is available in the form of tea bags. The tea bags are to be infused in hot water for ten minutes and taken once a day.

Since these herbs lower blood pressure, those using medications should watch their blood pressure and consult a medical doctor to adjust doses.
