Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), the magical herb, is considered to be nature's gift to mankind. For centuries, ayurvedic medicine has used it to treat people for their day to day woes such as stress, anxiety, exhaustion, lack of sleep et al. And with an abundance of antioxidants, iron and amino acids, it's no surprise that Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful herbs in ayurvedic healing. When it comes to diabetes, Ashwagandha works by influencing the body's production of insulin and insulin sensitivity. It stimulates the secretion of insulin in bloodstream thus improving the break down of sugars in the blood. This ensures that less harmful sugars are being stored on your body.
Saptarangi (Salacia Oblonga), native to India (Western Ghats), China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and other Asian regions, Saptarangi belongs to the Celastraceae family of plants. It typically grows in tropical climates and bears beautiful greenish-yellow flowers. This perennial plant works to purify pitta and helps to treat kapha-vitta disorders. It is the most traditional herb used for the treatment of type 2 Diabetes. This herb contain enzymes known as alpha-glycosides that turn carbohydrates into glucose, the sugar that circulates throughout the body. If this enzyme binds to the herbal extract rather than the carbohydrates then less glucose will get into the blood stream resulting in lowering blood glucose and insulin levels.
Mamejava, also known as Enicostemma littorale is a herbaceous bitter pant that can help treat rheumatism, skin diseases, abdominal disorders, obesity and maintian blood sugar levels. The medicinal plant has antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory and hypoglycemic properties. It can lower the levels of triglycerides, cholesterol and fatty acids.

Karela (Momordica charantia) helps regulate the blood sugar level in your body. According to studies, karela has a few active substances with anti-diabetic properties. One of them is charantin, which is famous for its blood glucose-lowering effect. Bitter gourd contains an insulin-like compound called Polypeptide-p or p-insulin which has been shown to control diabetes naturally. These substances either work individually or together to help reduce blood sugar levels. When your insulin is active, your blood sugar would be used adequately and not convert into fat, which would eventually help in weight loss too.
9. JAMUN SEEDS
Jamun Seeds (Syzygium cumini) contain alkaloids called jambosine and jamboline. Both these are believed to slow down the process of converting starch into sugar. This means there are lesser chances of a sudden spike in blood sugar levels when the starch in your food is metabolised. Type 2 diabetics have low levels of insulin available to act on blood glucose; this could be because either the production of insulin in the pancreas is low, or due to a very fast degradation of the insulin that has been produced. Jamun Seeds ensure a greater availability of insulin by either increasing its secretion or preventing it from degrading fast. It also helps in reducing diabetes symptoms like constantly feeling thirsty and frequent urination.
10. DARU HALDI
Daru Haldi (Berberis aristata) is also called as Indian barberry or Tree Turmeric stimulates the pancreas to release insulin in the blood and also helps with insulin resistance among the cells. Hence, glucose enters the cell providing energy and purifying the blood of any sugar. Daru Haldi is very beneficial for managing blood sugar levels by increasing the metabolism of glucose and preventing further formation of glucose. It also lowers the bad cholesterol levels in the body and helps in weight management by inhibiting the formation of fat cells in the body. This is mainly due to the active constituent berberine present in Daru Haldi which has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Harar (Chebulic Myrobalan), known as "king of herbs" and also known by the vernacular names Kadukkai in Tamil, Karakkaya in Telugu and Indian hog plum in English is one of the three rejuvenating herbs that constitute the miraculous Triphala formulation. Several scientific researches strongly advocate the use of Harar for managing diabetes and keeping the blood sugar levels under control. The production of insulin from the pancreatic β-cells become active on consumption of the Harar. It also helps to reduce the breakdown of starch into glucose which in turn regulates the secretion of insulin and leads to low blood glucose level. It is also extremely effective in reducing stomach acidity and minimalizing the chances of various stomach ulcers. Also Harar is traditionally used as a mouthwash for treating and curing various problems related to oral hygiene like gum disease, mouth ulcers, oral sores.
Baheda (Terminalia bellirica) is also known as “Bibhitaki” in Sanskrit which means “The one that keeps away from diseases”.

Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) is a traditional remedy that may help keep blood sugar at a steady level and prevent spikes after meals. Amla or Indian gooseberry is mostly recommended by health practitioners as a general tonic and as a topical treatment for skin and hair and other ailments. Amla contains a mineral called chromium, which helps in regulating the carbohydrate metabolism and making the body more responsive to the insulin that keeps the blood sugar in track. Amla contains a load of antioxidants which are extremely essential for our body as they quench the free radicals in the blood. Free radicals are those unstable molecules which can damage the cells. They form when atoms or molecules in our body gains or loses electrons. Their formation is normal but if they are not quenched, they can even harm our organs and their abilities to perform various functions. Only antioxidants can safely interact with free radicals by donating the missing electron to them but, when they do so, they become a free radical themselves. Our body can’t produce antioxidants on its own, so it becomes very important to have loads of antioxidants through our diet. Thus Amla is a must-have fruit for the diabetics to make sure that their blood sugar levels are controlled.
VIjaysar (Pterocarpus Marsupium) is a large deciduous tree that usually grows to a height of 3o metres. These trees grow in Nepal, Srilanka and India. It is usually found thriving in the western ghat regions, Karnataka-Kerala region, hilly regions of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, and in the forests of central India. Vijaysar is an excellent plant for managing high sugar levels by improving the metabolism due to its Tikta (bitter) and Kashaya (astringent) properties and Kapha-Pitta balancing doshas. The excellent anti-glycemic nature of Vijaysar plays a quintessential role in alleviating the blood sugar level of the body. Be it the bark powder, leaf juice or heartwood decoction, the production of insulin from the pancreatic β-cells becomes active on taking Vijaysar. It helps to reduce the breakdown of starch into glucose which in turn leads to low blood glucose levels.
Diabetes is a disorder characterized by chronic high blood glucose levels. Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is very effective in boosting the secretion and utilization of the insulin hormone. The holy leaves of Tulsi are blessed with antioxidants and essential oils that produce mystic components like eugenol, methyl eugenol, and caryophyllene. These compounds aid in the secretion of insulin and increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin. Significantly greater improvements in glucose control occurred in those taking tulsi plus their usual medications. Spikes in blood glucose levels after eating also improved significantly. Tulsi leaves are said to have hypoglycaemic properties, which lower blood sugar levels and help prevent complications of diabetes.
Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) acts as a hypoglycaemic agent and helps treat diabetes particularly Type 2 diabetes.

Dalchini (Cinnamomum verum) is known to contain large amounts of antioxidants that help the body reduce oxidative stress, a type of damage to cells that is caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress is attributed to the development of many chronic diseases, including type-2 diabetes. In people with diabetes, pancreas cannot produce enough insulin or cells may not respond to insulin properly, leading to unstable blood sugar levels, Dalchini increases insulin sensitivity immediately after consumption. Dalchini also helps lower the risk of other health conditions like heart diseases and blood pressure. Dalchini significantly lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Also Dalchini can help keep these blood sugar spikes after meals in check.
24. ARJUN CHHAL

Arjuna Chhal also has strong anti-hypertensive property and helps reduce high blood pressure.
Over the years, Saunth (Zingiber officinale) has been used to help reduce blood sugar levels and help regulate insulin response in people with diabetes. Different ginger extracts, spissum and an oily extract, interact with serotonin receptors to reveres their effect on insulin secretion. Saunth has a low glycemic index (GI), so low as to be negligible. People with diabetes benefit from low GI foods because these foods release glucose into the blood at a slower rate, preventing unwanted spikes in blood sugar levels.
Kutki (Picrorhiza kurrooa) is known to balance blood sugar levels; thanks to its diuretic, anti-diabetic and hypocholesterolaemic properties that make it a rejuvenating herb for diabetics.
