Salacia oblonga (Celastaceae), "Ponkoranti", is a woody plant found in forests of Sri Lanka and India. The roots and stems of Salacia Oblonga have been used extensively in Aryuveda and traditional Indian medicine for treatment of Diabetes.
Recently, it has been found that a-Glucosidase inhibitors are potent therapeutic agents in carbohydrate-metabolic disorders such as Diabetes Mellitus.
Salacia Oblonga contains two potent a-Glucosidase inhibitors: Salicinol and Kotalanol 9. Methanol extracts from roots of Salacia Oblonga exhibit an inhibitory effect on increase of serum glucose levels in sucrose- and maltose-loaded rats. Salacia Oblonga has also been found to show inhibitory activity on Aldose Reductase which is related to such chronic diabetic complications as peripheral neuropathy, retinopathy, and cataracts.
Superior in terms of safety compared to chemically synthesized products, Salacia Oblonga is an effective anti-diabetic and dieting agent. Salacia Oblonga is more than 200 times stronger than Acarbose, an a-Glucosidase inhibitor manufactured by Bayer Corp.
Drug-Free Pain MedicationWritten by Danielle Papageorgiou
Well, it’s about time!
One would think that FDA would be a reliable source of confidence when it comes to considering safety of medications. And one would think that those persons who conduct studies on drugs for human consumption would have credibility to be trusted to submit honest reports for perusal by anyone asking. But, public faith and trust in FDA is quickly fading away.
Quotes such as this one, from Dr. David Graham, senior drug safety researcher at FDA, only serve to increase public concern. “On 9/11, 3000 people died. With Vioxx, ten to fifteen times that number died . . . . it is a national catastrophe.” As pharmaceutical companies argue over why public was not provided with true hazards of consuming their products, recent news articles explain heart attack and stroke risks of taking Pfizer’s product, Vioxx, and Merck’s product, Celebrex. Sadly, it would seem that an organization set up to protect us ultimately cannot be trusted. So, if FDA is unreliable in certifying safety of common pain-relieving drugs, where does a person with chronic pain turn? Perhaps answer lies in natural products. In India, an herb called Boswellia (known in biblical times as Frankincense) has been used for thousands of years as a proven pain reliever for overworked joints. It acts much like well-known non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and those anti-inflammatory effects make it beneficial for ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel syndrome, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
