any idea of the chinese name for andrographis paniculata?
andrographis paniculata seems a possible try for supplement along with diabetes tablets.


Hi Eva,

The andrographis paniculata is also known as 穿心莲. Here is a short article for your reading pleasure. :)/>

I have a lot of seeds that were given by BMB Albert who happens to be my neighbour! :)/> You can get some from me to plant if you want.

Cheers!

The noni fruit looks like a mini pineapple which has been peeled. It is green when young and turns white as it ripens. It grows on a tree and the leaves are also occasionally used in Asian cooking as a wrap. It enjoyed great popularity a few years back when Tahitian noni or Hawaiian noni juice was sold by MLMs at exorbitant prices as a sort of cure-all but some of the enthusiasm has died down though I saw a shop near Tanjong Pagar MRT station that still sells it. It is a fairly common tree, actually. There are two near my home. A month ago I was climbing a ladder to pick a whole basketful for a friend who had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. Basically, she took the ripe fruit and juiced it. Then, she cooked that together with the juice of some apples (to make it more palatable). She said the whole house stank and her son complained. :unsure:/> Then she drank a little every day - by holding her nose and gulping it down really fast. She hasn't asked me for another basketful yet.

I have heard that it is eaten in a salad in Indonesia when it isn't too ripe. It doesn't smell until it is ripe. Then, it is white and squishy.


Yes, it is very hard to get real cinammon. If you look at real cinammon, you will know it is the real thing if the curls are paperthin, fine and tightly rolled. Cassia is thicker and the spiral will just be one or two turns. The smell of real cinammon is wonderful.


Woa, i've learnt lots here. Thanks shireen. By the way shireen, is it possible for me to have some noni fruits? i have family member who has diabetic i am keen to try out the fruits that you talk about. May i?

edited to add - i will be in katong on sunday. maybe i can meet u there? :)/>

sori to interrupt, but the stamens and leaves of maize (Zea mays) is used in TCM for reducing blood glucose level. as of thyroid gland infection, u cook 10 black beans in coconut juice until everything softens. drink once to twice per day depending on severity

The herb carnitine can be used to reduce oxidative stress in diabetic patients.

Look harder at those RC plantation, likely to find it.
Grows very easily, just need to take a cutting and plant into soil.

Gynura Procumbens aka Sambung Nyawa has been written about in the Singapore medical journal. It was found to be effective in diabetic rats. No diabetics in my home, but we did give some to friends who have found it effective. Can be grown easily from a cutting. This plant also has other properties like able to help shrink tumours and control high blood pressure or so I hear.

1) cinnamon has been proven to help

2) roselle

3) sage

4) fenugreek

5) gymnema sylvestre

Dun use them all at once though.

moringa oleifera and bitter gourd help too
