Glucose is an essential component for all bodily functions and an important source of energy for cellular activity. Even more so, it’s the main source of energy for the brain to function at optimum levels. Glucose is a byproduct from the food we eat and is regulated by insulin, which is a hormone. Insulin regulates the proper balance of glucose and is responsible for levels becoming too high or too low.
When glucose levels become too high, the person suffers from diabetes. There are two types of diabetes: type 1 is an autoimmune disorder (which is less common) and type 2 develops from improper lifestyle habits and is much more common.
What Causes High Blood Sugar?
According to Ayurveda, the root cause of high blood sugar comes from a combination of a sedentary lifestyle and eating too many foods that produce excess kapha or cause excess mucus. Ayurveda calls high blood sugar Madhumeha, which is similar to type 2 diabetes.
With type 2, the person lacks the ability to properly use insulin and excess glucose builds up in the blood. The kidneys try to compensate and some of the excess glucose is removed by the kidneys and excreted in the urine.
Reduced insulin production and decreased insulin sensitivity are the contributing factors for madhumeha known as Hyperglycemia or high blood sugar.
Symptoms of High Blood Sugar

- Frequent urination
- Increased hunger
- Unintended weight loss

Amritamehari Churnam is a special herbal supplement for people suffering with high blood sugar. Its herbal actions are antidiabetic and antihyperglycemic and helps to normalize the blood glucose level. It also helps stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin.
Amritamehari Churnam is formulated to reduce excess kapha, kleda (moisture/dampness) and meda dhatu (fat tissue). The unique combination of herbs protects the body from the damage caused by high blood sugar. Chronic high blood sugar damages the nervous system, urinary system, bone marrow, kidneys and the bladder. Amritamehari Churnam helps balance cellular function and reduces fatigue.
