Former Health Secretary Jaime Galvez Tan is endorsing an “amazing” supplement for diabetics dubbed as BioHerb.
“We have an amazing food supplement that is packed with leaf extracts of four plants known to be most effective in lowering sugar level. People in the countryside and mountains eat these plants and they live longer,” he said.
According to Tan, BioHerb is not designed to replace diabetics’ daily maintenance medicine.
The food supplement, however, has four major ingredients—ampalaya, banaba, camote, and duhat—to manage blood sugar level
Tan said those who are not diabetic may also take a tablet of BioHerb daily after meal.
It helps lower the level of cholesterol and triglyceride, enhances insulin secretion, reduces glycogenesis, inhibits absorption of carbohydrates from the intestines, and lowers blood pressure.
BioHerb is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is manufactured by Filipino-owned firm La Croesus Pharma Inc.
“We at Nutra Berde Inc. want to provide Filipinos an all-natural way to manage diabetes. It is a disease that is a growing cause of morbidity in the country,” said Mark Lopez, president of Nutra Berde Inc., which distributes the supplement.
A United Nations study has shown that by 2030, the Philippines will be among the top 10 countries with the most people with the said chronic disease, translating to over seven million Filipinos with diabetes.
“With a healthy diet, exercise, and a regimen of taking Bioherb once a day, Pinoys can combat the effects of diabetes and even more, prevent its onset for those likely to develop it,” added Genebebs Hollesca company pharmacist of Nutra Berde Inc.
