My father side being a family of diabetics, I have become extra careful about what I feed my family. This is why I try my best to avoid fast food or processed food and just cook. Home-cooked meals are healthier and cheaper anyway! Aside from cooking healthy meals for my family, I also make it a point to encourage everyone to exercise daily, even for just 10 minutes a day. We also make sure we take vitamins and supplements that can help us stay healthy.
One supplement we’re taking is Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsules. I’ve heard a whole lot about Moringa Olifeira–more commonly known as Malunggay–being used as an effective means in lowering and regulating blood sugar levels, which is why we’re taking it as a combo to healthy eating and regular exercise.
In late 2014, physicians at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) embarked on a study presenting the possible beneficial effects of Malunggay in relation to blood sugar level. They used Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsules, which features the purest form of the herb in an easy-to-take capsule.
According to Doctors Rainier Nery Mozo and Imelda Caole-Ang, an extract derived from Malunggay reduced Hemoglobin A1c at 0.6% in the blood glucose after a regular dosage of Malunggay capsules. It is also said to reduce C-reactive protein (hsCRP) by 50%, the presence of whice indicates conditions like diabetes. Furthermore, the study by Mozo and Ang showed that consuming malunggay can improve glucose metabolism and lowers insulin resistance.
That said, experts recommend that diabetic patients make malunggay part of their diet. Apart from adding malunggay to dishes like Tinola or Monggo, taking it in capsule form like what is offered by Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule (which, by the way, is made of purely malunggay) can make dosage more concentrated and more convenient.
If you are a diabetic, come from a family of diabetics, or simply want to feel the benefits of malunggay, Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule is something you may want to add to your diet. I just hope they have something for the minis so they can benefit from it too!
