29 October 2015

Lucknow, India: For those having high blood sugar levels and are on antibiotics for long, state-owned National Botanical Garden Institute (NBRI) here has come up with a herbal and healthy option. “We have developed a medicine for Type-II diabetes patients on Ayurvedic method, which does not have any side effect,” Senior Principal Scientist AKS Rawat told PTI.

Generally antigens affect body organs on the long run. But this drug contains anti-oxidants, which help in rebuilding process, he said. Rawat said the initiative was taken by NBRI Director C S Nautiyal. He said the drug has been introduced in tablet form. The Ayurvedic drug has been named ‘BGR—34’ and may cost ₹500 (3 BHD) for 100 tablets. “If taken for a longer period, it may also reduce dependence on insulin,” Rawat said. A combination of natural extracts, the drug has been jointly developed by two CSIR laboratories — NBRI and the Central Institute for Medicinal and Aromatic Plant (CIMAP) — both in Lucknow.
