From Machesney Park, Illinois, USA:
I received a mailing from a company claiming that they produce a natural formula of 10 herbs that restores normal pancreatic function by regenerating beta cells within the pancreas. All together, the herbs claim to lower blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and decrease the need for insulin, sometimes completely. The product name is Antibetic Pancreas tonic. The list of some of the herbs are: gymnema sylvestre, momordica charantia(balsam pear), tinospora cordifolia, trigonella foenum-graecum, and cinnamomum tamala. Does this have merit in possibly curing diabetes as they say it can?
In my opinion, no.
