Can the botanical beverage mix drink from Japan by a Malaysian company help people with diabetes?
According to the information in the product catalog, yes, it can help diabetes patients but only for Type 1 diabetes.
What is Type 1 diabetes?
According to Mayo Clinic website:
Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy.
What are the causes of type 1 diabetes?
Again, according to Mayo Clinic:
The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is unknown.
Usually, the body’s own immune system – which normally fights harmful bacteria and viruses – mistakenly destroys the insulin-producing (islet, or islets of Langerhans) cells in the pancreas.
Other possible causes include:
- Exposure to viruses and other environmental factors
The active ingredient
The main active ingredient in the product is IP-PA1.
It stands for Immunopotentiator from Pantoea agglomerans 1.
IP-PA1 has been clinically proven to repair insulin-producing cells and maintain insulin production.
The report for the above study was published in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Bulletin.
The title of the actual clinical study is Homeostasis as Regulated by Activated Macrophage. V. Suppression of Diabetes Mellitus in Non-obese Diabetic Mice by LPSw (a Lipopolysaccharide from Wheat Flour).
