Diabecon contains Gymnema, Indian Kino Tree and Shilajit. Gymnema’s principal constituent is gymnemic acid, which has antidiabetic properties. It reduces excessive blood sugar. It also has a regenerative effect on pancreatic beta cells and is insulinotropic, which means that it stimulates the production and activity of insulin. Indian Kino Tree’s contains epicatechin which has alpha-glucosidase inhibitory properties and regularizes key metabolic enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism. Shilajit decreases hepatic glucose production and prevents hyperglycaemia. Shilajit has a protective action on b-cells of the pancreas, and promotes unrestricted endogenous insulin action.
