Extracts of Schisandra and Soybean May Provide Blood Sugar Benefits

Extracts of Schisandra and Soybean May Provide Blood Sugar Benefits

Schisandra is a vine that produces red-purple berries called five-flavor fruit. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. A new study has found that supplementation with extracts of schisandra and soybean may provide blood sugar health benefits. 

63 adults with high blood sugar levels participated in the study. They consumed 500 mg of schisandra and soybean extracts with a 5:1 ratio or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. The researchers evaluated plasma fasting glucose, fasting plasma insulin, postprandial insulin, and the glucose-related markers C-peptide and fructosamine at baseline and at the end of the study period. 

Participants in the extract group saw significant reductions in plasma fasting glucose, fasting plasma insulin, and postprandial insulin at the end of the study compared to the placebo group. They also saw significant decreases in C-peptide and fructosamine levels compared to the placebo group. 

The study was conducted by researchers from Jeonbuk National University. It was published online ahead of print on July 30, 2022 in the journal Nutrients. 

Mulberry fruit was found to provide blood sugar health benefits in a previous study.
