The Powerful Blood Sugar Lowering Effect of Withania Coagulans

The Powerful Blood Sugar Lowering Effect of Withania Coagulans Finally, diabetic mice that were fed the nanoparticles for 5 days showed about 40% lower blood glucose levels compared to their starting amounts. Surprisingly, even 5 days after the treatment ended, the mice showed a 60% reduction in blood glucose compared to their starting levels. Kaarunya…
