Aromatic Shrub

Good news for everyone suffering from diabetes or high blood sugar!

Israeli researchers have discovered an aromatic shrub, indigenous to Israel and the Middle East, called Chiliadenus iphionoides (sharp varthemia) that has the ability to lower blood sugar levels.

According to Dr. Jonathan Gorelick’s research in the field, consumption of the plant increases sugar absorption in skeletal muscle and fat cells, effectively reducing blood sugar levels! He and his team are currently working hard to isolate the active ingredient of this amazing plant so that it can be made into an accessible treatment for diabetes patients.

Keep your eyes out for this little yellow flower during your upcoming trip to Israel. You may just be looking at the next groundbreaking treatment for diabetes.

See you soon in The Land!
