Researchers at the University of Ulster in Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, found that the Chirette contains compounds that could stimulate insulin production and improve the action of the hormone .
The team presented their findings at the Diabetes UK annual professional conference in Glasgow . Lead researcher Dr. Abdel-Wahab reportedly commented: “Natural anti-diabetic drug discovery is a key area of research that is attracting a lot of interest.
