Pushkarmoola

A traditional Ayurvedic botanical medicine, Pushkarmoola (Inula racemosa), has demonstrated blood glucose-lowering effects and enhanced liver glycogen storage without elevating plasma insulin in animal studies. This effect was not due to increased adrenal gland activity or beta-cell degranulation.36 In addition, the researchers involved in one animal study suggested that the hypoglycemic response that Inula produces may occur peripherally via enhancement of insulin sensitivity, not via up-regulation or release of insulin itself. Inula extract decreased serum glucose concentration in corticosteroid-induced hyperglycemia animal models, also suggesting that additional studies of this botanical medicine may shed light on its use for treating insulin sensitivity.37 Additional research in human models is needed to quantify the effects of this herb further as an adjunctive treatment for metabolic syndrome.
