Food Therapy: Black Bean, A Potent Anti Diabetes whole Food Medicine

By Kyle J. Norton

People who turn to alternative medicine for treatment of disease in avoidance of adverse effects induced by conventional medicine should be patient. In compared to herbal medicine; food therapy even takes longer than six months to ease symptoms, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Black bean with abundant phytochemicals and fibers may be considered as function food in reduced risk and treatment of diabetes, a renowned university postulated.

Black bean, a small roughly ovoid legumes with glossy black shells, genus Phaseolus, belongings to the family Fabaceae can bought in most grocery stores all around the year in dried and canned forms. It is believed that black bean was first domesticated growth in South America.

Diabetes is a medical condition ccharacterozed by insufficient insulin entering the bloodstream to regulate the glucose. It is either caused by cells in pancreas dying off or receptor sites clogged up by fat and cholesterol. In some cases, diabetes is also caused by allergic reactions of cells in the immune system.

According to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, bioactive peptides protein isolated from black bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) exhibited anti-diabetic activity by inhibiting important molecular markers, a particular sequence of DNA related to diabetes.

The study also stressed that certain types of peptides showed some degrees of different inhibitory potential on α-glucosidase, in compared to others. 

In C57BL/6J Mice fed a High-Fat Diet, black adzuki bean (BAB) extract exerted significantly anti diabetic effects in improved pancreatic β cells function in maintained mediation of normal glucose.

Furthermore, mice fed with dietary supplementation of black bean extract also significantly enhanced hyperglycemia and homeostasis measured by insulin resistance index, observed by expression of glucose intolerance, and regulated insulin secretion.

More importantly, in the comparison of protective effects of black bean peel extract (BBPE), pomegranate peel extract (PPE) and a combination of the two (PPE + BBPE) on streptozotocin-induced DM mice, mice treated with black bean or combination of black bean showed a strong improvement of fasting blood glucose and insulin levels, and pancreas weight index exerted through antioxidant in reduced oxidative expression.

Mice treated with PPE + BBPE also indicated a positive influence in ameliorated oxidative stress-against damage of pancreatic islets.

The finding evidences suggested that black bean, as a functional food may have a potential and therapeutic effect in prevention and treatment of diabetes.
