INSULIN PLANT – MAGIC treatment for Diabetes claimed by Ayurvedic Medicine

Today will look into an interesting herbal plant known as the Insulin Plant or Keukand Plant or kostum plant in hindi – which is believed to be a magic plant used in the herbal treatment of diabetes mellitus. In the end we also talk on all its beneficial effects, the dosage and how to use it in diabetes.
Chamaecostus cuspidatus or Costus igneus commonly name fiery costus or spiral flag, is a herbaceous plant in the Costaceae family native to eastern Brazil and also south east Asia.
In India, it is popularly known as insulin plant because of its use in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-diabetic properties. So in India its cultivated mainly for this purpose, but elsewhere its grown as an ornamental plant.
This is a herb and the maximum height achieved by this plants is about two feet. It even gets flowers in summer which are usually orange in color. Its called spiral flag because its leaves are arranged in a spiral fashion around the stem.
Now few points on the growth and propagation of insulin plant. The plant grows very quickly and easily and again this is also a zero maintenance plant. It does well in some sunshine or partly shady areas. Perhaps about 2 to 3 hours direct sunlight is sufficient for this plant.
Regarding Water and Soil requirements: Just requires regular watering and a well drained soil – the regular soil what we make is about 40 percent garden soil, 30 % sand or cocopeat or even perlite plus about 10 to 20 percent vermicompost or any compost .
And the propagation is easy by stem cutting. Will make a separate video on this once this present plant grows bigger and large enough to fetch some cuttings.
Now lastly few points on its Benefits:
– In Ayurvedic Medicine, its leaves are believed to increase the production of insulin from pancreas.
– So the consumption of its leaves is believed to lower the blood glucose levels.
– According to Ayurvedic research and studies, diabetics were found to lower their sugar levels after oral ingestion of leaves of insulin plant.
– Its also believed to have Anti – hypolipidemic property – meaning it can lower your bad cholesterol and triglycerides (that’s body fat).
– Its also believed to have some Anti-Cancer effect, Anti-Oxidant effect and also Anti-inflammatory effect – like anti microbial effect as claimed by Ayurveda.
The Prescribed regime for Diabetics is like this:
The patient has to chew 2 leaves in the morning and again in evening for 1 week daily. Then for another 3 weeks, one leaf in the morning and one in evening daily. So total 30 days therapy.
