From Herndon, Virginia, USA:

My brother in Germany has a tea (ready to consume in sachet and boxed) that has already been tested in clinic overseas and lowers blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Do you have any advice as to how to get it tested here (if needed) or perhaps how to market this?


The first thing your brother needs to do in order to get his tea accepted by people with diabetes and those who treat them is to make it available to scientists and researchers. They can then carry out studies of its use by many test subjects. These clinical trials should ideally be randomized, placebo-controlled, and double blind. Finally, the scientists and researchers need to present the results of their research in a peer-reviewed publication that is included in PubMed. Only then will people with diabetes and those who treat them in America accept the validity of your brother's claims.
