Trying to think of a good drink for breakfast if you are
diabetic?  Chamomile tea, also known as manzanilla, is one of
the best choices.

According to a new study published September 10, 2008 in the
Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, chamomile extract
fed to mice can help to prevent the complications of diabetes,
which include loss of vision, nerve damage, and kidney damage.

The new study was conducted by Dr. Atsushi Kato and his team
of researchers from the University of Toyama in Toyama,
Japan, and researchers from the Institute of Grassland and
Environmental Research in the United Kingdom.

The research may be used in the future to develop
chamomile-based diabetes medications.

In the meantime, drinking a cup or two daily can help in your
overall program of diabetes management.































This and other studies suggest that chamomile helps to reduce
the symptoms of diabetes and the risk for developing diabetes
by lowering blood sugar, increasing the amount of glycogen
stored in your liver.

Chamomile also reduces the oxidative stress on your pancreas
caused by high blood sugar levels, according to another 2008
study from  Afyon Kocatepe University in Turkey.


Unfortunately, most of the studies on chamomile's usefulness in
treating diabetes have been conducted on animals and many
more human studies will be needed to clarify the promising role
of chamomile in treating diabetes.
