商品描述

Diabetes is a chronic condition associated with metabolic disorder. Persons suffering from diabetes have shown accelerated levels of blood sugar which often harms the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Over the past few decades, the prevalence of diabetes has been progressively increasing. Synthetic drugs are used to treat diabetic patients to help control the disorder, but it is shown that numerous medicinal plants and herbal drugs are widely used in several traditional systems of medicine to prevent and treat diabetes. They are reported to produce beneficial effects in combating diabetes and alleviating diabetes-related complications. These plants contain phtyonutrients and phytoconstituents demonstrating protective or disease preventive properties. In many developing countries, herbal drugs are recommended by traditional practitioners for diabetes treatment because the use of synthetic drugs is not affordable.

Key Features:

  • Provides botanical descriptions, distribution, and pharmacological investigations of notable medicinal and herbal plants used to prevent or treat diabetes
  • Discusses phytochemical and polyherbal formulations for the management of diabetes and other related complications
  • Contains reports on antidiabetic plants and their potential uses in drug discovery based on their bioactive molecules

This volume in the Exploring Medicinal Plants series provides an overview of natural healing treatments in selected antidiabetic plants. The book presents valuable information to scientists, researchers, and students working with medicinal plants or for those specializing in areas of ethnobotany, natural products, pharmacognosy, and other areas of allied healthcare. It is also useful to pharmaceutical companies, industrialists, and health policy makers.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

糖尿病是一種與代謝紊亂相關的慢性疾病。患有糖尿病的人顯示出加速的血糖水平,這通常會對心臟、血管、眼睛、腎臟和神經造成傷害。在過去幾十年中,糖尿病的盛行率一直在逐漸增加。合成藥物被用於治療糖尿病患者以幫助控制這種疾病,但研究表明許多藥用植物和草藥在多種傳統醫學系統中被廣泛使用以預防和治療糖尿病。據報導,它們能夠產生有益的效果,對抗糖尿病並緩解與糖尿病相關的併發症。這些植物含有具有保護或預防疾病特性的植物營養素和植物成分。在許多發展中國家,傳統醫生推薦使用草藥治療糖尿病,因為合成藥物的使用是不可負擔的。

主要特點:
- 提供了有關預防或治療糖尿病的著名藥用植物的植物描述、分布和藥理學研究的資訊
- 討論了用於管理糖尿病和其他相關併發症的植物化學和多藥物配方
- 包含有關抗糖尿病植物及其潛在用途於基於其生物活性分子的藥物發現的報告

這本《探索藥用植物》系列中的一冊提供了選定的抗糖尿病植物的自然療法治療方法的概述。本書為從事藥用植物研究的科學家、研究人員和學生,以及專注於民族植物學、天然產品、藥用植物學和其他相關醫療領域的人士提供了有價值的信息。對於製藥公司、工業家和衛生政策制定者也很有用。
