Traditional Thai Medicine Effective Against Diabetes

It's encouraging to read when modern science confirms the effectiveness of a traditional medicine.

Senna siamea, also known as Siamese cassia, has been used as an antidiabetic drug since antiquity.

From the research paper:

"S. siamea components demonstrated effects against insulin resistance. The chemical structure displayed identical biological activity to that of the compounds (resveratrol, piceatannol, dihydropiceatannol, chrysophanol, and emodin.)

Therefore, S. siamea wood extract and their components are potential therapeutic options in the treatment of diabetes."

If this ancient remedy helps you, thank a Thai medicine man... or his wife.

Cassia wood extract is available worldwide from Herbs First.
