If you expect that herbal medicine will ease the symptoms of your illness immediately, you will be disappointed. Symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

Kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) prolonged administration has shown to reduce sugar blood levels of test subjects, a renowned institute study suggested.

Kidney bean is popular because of its kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature, It is often an excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol, but a good source of protein and minerals.

According to the University of Extremadura, oral administration of alpha-amylase isolated and purified from an extract of white kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) at 50 mg/kg body weight to adult Wistar rats, ameliorated the increase in glycaemia over the basal value, without modifying the insulin response.

Hyperglycemia is a condition of abnormal high levels of blood sugar, affecting people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, as well as pregnant women with gestational diabetes.

Dr. Tormo MA, the lead author said, "(The extract expressed) significant anorexigenic(appetite suppressant) action of the inhibitor; there was reduced food intake...., a reduced weight gain,...., as well as changes in the activity of some intestinal enzymes".

In fact, the extracts of kidney beans ( Phaseolus vulgaris ) reduced glycemia as in studies of rodents and humans may be attributed to the direct interference with the central mechanism(s) in regulating appetite, food intake, and food palatability, inhibited enzymes response to process of starch digestion and hunger. 

In genetically obese Zucker fa/fa rats, dry extract administered daily, at doses of 50 and 500 mg/kg, in three 5 days treatment periods followed by three 20 days off-treatment periods, decreased in daily food intake and body weight and suppressed glycaemia in both treatment phases.

The investigation of clinical use of the combination of P. vulgaris and C. scolymus extracts also supported the hypoglycaemic effects of kidney bean as a successful example of translational research in the pharmaceutical-grade and standardized nutrient field.

With the collected information, kidney bean no doubt has processed a clinical value with potential of becoming a standard medicine for treatment in controlling and management of hyperglycemia in obese and over weight patients.
