Bauhinia forticata has been used by local indigenous tribes in Brazil for centuries. It is renowned for its impressive powers and has been traditionally used as a blood cleanser, diuretic, and to treat snakebites, skin problems, and elephantiasis. In fact, it is known as ‘vegetable insulin’ due to its ability to treat diabetes.
For over sixty years, people have been using Bauhinia forticata to treat blood sugar disorders, balance blood sugar levels, and reduce other diabetic symptoms such as kidney disorder, urinary complications, and polyuria (urinary frequency).
Traditionally, the plant is prepared by infusing the leaves in hot water and then consumed three times a day with food to treat high blood sugar.
Recent studies have confirmed the efficacy of Bauhinia Forticata in reducing blood sugar levels and its antioxidant effect. The leaves are rich in an antibacterial chemical called astragalin, along with other alkaloids, glycosides, and flavonoids. One of these, kaempferitrin, has been found to assist in kidney cell regeneration and induce a diuretic effect.
Other chemicals found in the plant include guanidine, heteroglycosides, organic acids, quercitrosides, rhamnose, and saponins.
