Plant-based medicines are the most prevalent modes of supportive diabetes treatment. More than 1200 flowering plants are said to possess antidiabetic properties. Results of scientific studies are available in scientific journals on a third of these flowering plants. (Chang, C.L et al., 2013) But Piper nigrum which is the botanical name for black pepper is not listed as an anti-diabetic herb either in Ayurveda or in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Several herbs and herbal combinations are used in Ayurveda to treat diabetes. After a detailed scientific review, I have been able to identify four plants (Gymnema sylvestre, Trigonella foenum-graecum, Eugenia jambolana, and Curcuma longa) that have the most substantial scientific support for their anti-diabetic properties.

A review of herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) shows that Atractylodes macrocephala, Codonopsis pilosula, Dioscorea opposita, Flos lonicerae, and Pueraria lobata prevent the progression of diabetes by reducing blood glucose level.

The universe of plants with antidiabetic properties is vast. Scientific studies are restricted mainly to animal trials. Today, herbal medicine is performing the role of mutual support to modern diabetic medicine.

I would look at a herbal combination that has the above-mentioned herbs for use as a supporting supplement with modern medicine. But do that only after taking your physician into confidence. Unlike the general belief that herbs are harmless and have no side effects, my research in plants tells me that this is not true. The world’s deadliest poisons, for instance, came from plants.
