A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of efficacy and safety of Frutarom’s purslane extract in controlling blood glucose levels was published this spring in the Journal of Medicinal Foods by Wainstein, et al. The findings show that Frutarom’s purslane extract is effective in improving blood glucose control in Type 2 diabetic patients, as demonstrated by the reduction in HbA1c.
In the light of the increasing concerns over the global rise of diabetes, this recent publication supports the use of Portusana® as part of healthy diet for those needing to control and maintain healthy glucose levels. It requires a very small dosage—180 mg per day—and has a very mild taste.
Portusana® is produced using Frutarom’s EFLA® HyperPure technology which ensures its compliance with the new 2015/1933 PAH regulation for maximum levels of PAHs in food supplements.
