Diabetes is a condition that affects the way the body uses food for energy. For healthy people, the sugar you take in is digested and broken down to a simple sugar, known as glucose. The glucose then circulates in the blood where it waits to enter cells to be used as fuel. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps move the glucose into cells. A healthy pancreas adjusts the amount of insulin based on the level of glucose. But, for people with diabetes, this process breaks down, and blood sugar levels become too high. There are two main types of diabetes. Sufferers from Type 1 diabetes are completely unable to produce insulin. People with Type 2 diabetes can produce insulin, but their cells don’t respond to it. In either case, the glucose can’t move into the cells and blood glucose levels can become high. Huereque (Ibervillea sonorae) is derived from the root of the Huereque cactus from the Mexican desert. Huereque has a strong effect on lowering blood sugar levels and is widely used in traditional medicine for the control of high blood sugar. Huereque also purifies the blood and the lymphatic system Huereque belongs to the gourd or pumpkin family, which includes plants that have biochemical compounds that can reduce the levels of sugar in the blood. Huereque is also known as “wereke”, “Guareque”, “Wareki” and “Choyalhuan”. Another useful herb in order to lower the blood sugar is Bitter Melon. Bitter Melon grows in tropical areas like Asia, the Caribbean, and South America, where it is used as food as well as medicine. At least three different components in Bitter Melon have been reported to have blood sugar lowering or other actions of benefit in diabetes mellitus. These include a mixture of steroidal saponins known as charantin, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids. The use of Bitter Melon has been shown to improve glucose tolerance without increasing blood insulin levels, and to improve fasting blood glucose levels.

Bitter melon grows on a vine with green leaves and yellow flowers. The fruit has a bumpy exterior, like a cucumber, and the inside is yellow-orange. There are many varieties of bitter melon, ranging in color from creamy white, golden, pale green to very dark green. Green melons are the ones most often seen in the United States. Some varieties are only a few inches long with very marked bumps; others are much larger with smoother, less-defined bumps. The insulin lowering properties of Bitter melon are currently being looked at as an effective treatment for Diabetes. Studies suggest that Bitter Melon play an important role in controlling the production of insulin by the body, and therefore promoting blood sugar control. The hypoglycemic effect is more pronounced in the fruit of Bitter Melon where these chemicals are found in the highest quantity. There are three groups of compounds in Bitter Melon that scientists have found to be responsible for its blood sugar lowering action:
Charantin, a compound of mixed steroids, Polypeptide P, an insuline-like plypeptide which appears to lower blood sugar in type I diabetics. Alkaloids present in the bitter gourd are also noted to have blood sugar lowering effects. Oleanolic Acid Glycosides, these compounds have been found to improve glucose tolerance in Type II diabetics by preventing the absorption of sugar from the intestines. Bitter Melon has also been linked to effects of increasing the number of beta cells in the pancreas as well, and as a result improving the body’s capability to produce insulin. Bitter melon and Huereque are the ingredients of Blood Sugar Combo from Nepatica.
