|Remarkable blood glucose reduction
In an observational study over 5 weeks, Frutarom's purslane herb extract normalized blood glucose in individuals with elevated levels.
Significant reduction of long term marker for blood glucose control
In addition, a placebo controlled, randomized clinical study in 63 type 2 diabetic patients taking blood glucose lowering medication was conducted over 12 weeks. Frutarom's purslane herb extract significantly reduced the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) compared to placebo in responding patients. HbA1c is a long term marker for blood glucose control, strongly associated with an increased risk for developing cardiovascular disorders. The reduction outperformed placebo by 44%, resulting in an average HbA1c value in line with the targets recommended in therapeutic guidelines for good blood glucose control (e.g. by the American College of Endocrinology). Furthermore, the extract was considered safe and well tolerated.
