Luyang Dilaw for Type II Diabetes

My mother-in-law, who's also a diabetic, has been drinking turmeric tea for a week now. In an effort to make it more acceptable to our taste, she added coffee to the tea. I just starting drinking turmeric extract with my coffee this morning and, surprisingly, it did not taste annoying at all. Have you heard about the benefits of luyang dilaw (turmeric)?

I have read about how beneficial it is for diabetics. In fact, Ampalaya Plus, a diabetic herbal supplement, has extracts of luyang dilaw added to that of the extracts of ampalaya and banaba. Turmeric has curcumin, an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant ingredient that has lessened insulin resistance in mice observed during a laboratory experiment. Not only that, the ingredient also lessens the risk of heart disease. In traditional Indian medicine, turmeric is used for treating wounds, arthritis, and stomach problems. In Okinawa, Japan, turmeric tea is taken in to treat stomach problems and other ailments.

There is still much to be researched about luyang dilaw being an anti-diabetic treatment. Nevertheless, its all-natural so I'm all for trying it.
