According to reports in the diabetes news, drinking a cup of chamomile tea every day alongside a healthy diet could help to prevent diabetes complications . A team from the UK and Japan revealed the findings.
The report, which could eventually lead to the development of new diabetes treatments based on chamomile, will be published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Chamomile, which is called manzanilla in some areas, has been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years as a medical cure all. Herbal tea has long been suspected of having anti-diabetes properties, but this most recent study is the first scientific testing. The researchers found rats with diabetes that were given chamomile supplements showed decreased blood glucose levels.
