The effect of Cordyceps Militaris on blood sugar levels and diabetes has been the subject of extensive research. Diabetes is commonly divided into two types: type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes normally develops early in life, when the immune system attacks and destroys the pancreas’ insulin-producing cells. This kind of diabetes affects ten percent of diabetics.
Consumption of too much sugar and refined carbohydrate over a long period leads to the development of cellular resistance to insulin action in type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes. The link between excessive consumption of these foods and insulin sensitivity is still debated. Overconsumption of sugar and refined carbohydrate, on the other hand, has been proved to cause persistent hyperinsulinemia, which could be the cause of cellular insulin sensitivity loss.
Cordyceps Militaris promise as a blood sugar regulator has been demonstrated in several clinical trials (in both animals and people). In one study, individuals treated with 3 grams of Cordyceps Militaris per day compared to patients treated with other more traditional treatments exhibited 95 percent improvement in their blood sugar profiles, compared to 54 percent improvement in the control group.
Cordyceps Militaris enhance blood glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and the liver’s release of the glucose-regulating enzymes glucokinase and hexokinase, according to animal studies. Cordyceps Militaris is derived from a Latin term that means “club and head.” It is harvested from April to August and belongs to the mushroom family. Cordyceps Militaris primarily infects insect larvae, and each species of Cordyceps Militaris infects a distinct type of bug. When the fungi’s spores settle on the caterpillar, the infection begins.
The spores will then pierce the insect and germinate, resulting in microscopic thread-like filaments sprouting from the insect’s head, which will eventually develop into mycelium. The mycelium will continue to grow inside the insect until it has completely consumed it. A blade-like fruiting structure will sprout from the insect’s head and generate spores once it has been completely devoured. The insect’s dried shell, together with the fungus, is then combined to form a blood sugar-controlling drug. Scientific proof of the Cordyceps Militaris mushroom’s properties appears to be promising.
Having high blood sugar regularly or for an extended period might harm your nerves, blood vessels, and organs. It can potentially lead to more significant health problems. Ketoacidosis, a build-up of acids in the blood, is common in people with type 1 diabetes. Extremely high blood sugar can lead to a potentially fatal situation in which your body can’t process sugar if you have type 2 diabetes or are at risk for it. The condition is known as a hyperglycaemic hyperosmolar nonketotic syndrome (HHNS). You’ll pee more frequently at first, then less frequently afterward, but your urine may darken and you may become extremely dehydrated.
You shouldn’t have to worry about hyperglycaemia if you work to keep your blood sugar under control by sticking to your meal plan, exercising regularly, and taking your medications on time. Additionally, you can:
Know your diet and keep track of the total carbs in each meal and snack.
Check your blood sugar levels regularly.
If you experience abnormal blood sugar readings regularly, tell your doctor.
In the event of an emergency, wear medical identification to let people know you have diabetes.
Diabetes affects around 25.8 million women, men, and children worldwide today. 7 million people have yet to be diagnosed, and about 80 million people have symptoms of prediabetes. Cordyceps Militaris has been found to improve insulin sensitivity, blood glucose metabolism, and liver output of the glucose-regulating enzymes hexokinase and glucokinase.
