Effect of minor minerals containing chromium on human health part i. diabetes control with herbs



Pakistan Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research 29(1): 45-47



It was established scientifically in 1950 that chromium plays a vital role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and that its deficiency leads to diabetes in the human body. In the Islamic system of medicine, several herbs have been used for the control of diabetes for centuries. In the present paper, some of these herbs have been evalauted for their chromium contents by the atomic absorption technique. The results show the presence of chromium in all these herbs perhaps thereby pointing to its therapeutic value. The chromium contents varies from 1.25 to 15.00 .mu.g per gram in dried herb.
