Dear Sir,

I found that apple is not effective in diabetes. I am taking daily, but my blood sugar level fasting is out of range.

Dear Anil

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. It is true.

But if you are diabetic, you should be a bit cautious. A diabetic person should take half i or a medium sized apple. And should strictly avoid taking it on an empty stomach, as it is known to increase the blood sugar levels.

So, do not take an apple on an empty stomach. You can take apple daily. remember not to take a huge apple.
Do take Tinospora cordifolia tincture to control the levels. Add 10 drops of it in half glass of water, regularly!!

Respected Madam,

I am taking Tinospora Cordifolia mother tincture and Gymnema mother tincture since 25 days both 10 drops twice a day. But I found it is not beneficial in sugar and Blood Pressure.

Dear Anil

It is strange that the Herb did not show any effects. Because I used the same set of Herbs. Followed the regimen for 20 days and the effects were outstanding. And the best part is I don't even take Allopathic medicines. You should observe the changes closely. That is when you would be able to analyze. It happens, that Herbs do take time to show effects. Stay observant.

Dear Anil

That's sad. Well, then I guess, there might be some other issue. Can't comment, since i am no health practitioner. Just wanted to share my experience with the Herb.
I still believe, Gymnema Sylvestre is a super effective Herb for diabetic patients. and for Blood Pressure Arjuna bark or Giloy.

All the best.
