definition, it’s the primary starch-digesting enzyme secreted in the body.
To be more specific, it digests carbohydrates (polysaccharides) into
smaller disaccharide units, eventually converting them into
monosaccharides, such as glucose. Alpha-amylase (α-Amylase) is the major
form of amylase found in humans & other mammals and is mainly made the
pancreas & salivary glands, but it’s also produced by the small intestine
mucosa, ovaries, placenta, liver & fallopian tubes. (1)"

Only a few chemicals are known to activate
AMPK. Berberine is 1 of
Reports that berberine activates AMPK were first published in 2006.5
Resveratrol, salicylate & metformin also activate this chemical
Berberine increases glucose uptake by muscle fibers independent of
insulin levels.8 Berberine triggers AMPK activation and
increases glycolysis, leading to decreased insulin resistance &
decreased oxygen respiration.9 The same mechanism leads to a
reduction in gluconeogenesis in the liver.10 AMPK activation
also explains why berberine has an antiatherosclerotic effect in mice.11
The same mechanism is reported to underlie berberine’s antiobesity
effects and favorable influence on weight loss12...
Berberine increases expression of insulin receptors and so reduces
insulin resistance. 32,33 A 2009 study in China suggested
that a synergistic action occurs when berberine
is combined with metformin or 2,4-thiazolidinedione (THZ) (a peroxisome
proliferator-activated receptor [PPAR] activator used to treat diabetes)
and might allow a reduction
in the amount of these

Goldilocks flower -
indigenous Israeli aromatic shrub called Chiliadenus

according to plant biologist Jonathan Gorelick,
scientific director of the Judea Regional Research
and Development Center in Israel. The center’s
efforts to isolate the plant’s active compounds —
and to assure these compounds are present when the
plant is grown in the greenhouse rather than in the
wild — is the topic of Gorelick’s presentation today
at the 25th Judea and Samaria Research Studies
Conference at Ariel University. 'This is a
plant that only grows in Israel, Jordan & the Sinai
& has been used traditionally by Bedouins
for controlling diabetes,' Gorelick tells ISRAEL21c.
'I’ve been screening different Israeli plants for
diabetes and this is one of the best candidates.'
published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology
in October 2011, Gorelick and his team describe how
they tested the effects of the plant on a particular
Negev rodent with a nutritionally induced model of
diabetes. When the animals were given an oral
glucose tolerance test, blood-glucose levels
returned immediately to normal levels only in the

reason why the stable form responds so well to the HCG method of
treating obesity, whereas the brittle type does not. Obese patients are

treat people with polyuria (excessive urination due to excess sugar in the

leading symptoms of untreated diabetes. References date as far back as
ancient Egypt & it was in common use in Medieval Europe. The herbal treatment was
featured in an English medical treatise by Culpepper in the 17th

medical center of the 18th century from which the 1st medical school in

- The (fairly safe plus inexpensive) metabolic “drug, metformin, is
already widely prescribed to decrease the glucose in
the blood of diabetics (76.9 million metformin
prescriptions were filled in the United States in 2014)In the years
ahead, it’s likely to be used to treat or at least to prevent some cancers.
Because metformin can influence a number of metabolic pathways, the
precise mechanism by which it achieves its anticancer effects remains a
source of debate. But the results of numerous epidemiological studies have
been striking. Diabetics taking metformin seem to be significantly less
likely to develop cancer than diabetics who don’t & significantly less likely to die from the
disease when they do…
Near the end of his life, Dr. Otto Warburg grew obsessed with his diet.
He believed that most cancer was preventable and thought that chemicals
added to food & used in agriculture could cause tumors by interfering with
respiration. He stopped eating bread unless it was baked in his own home.
He would drink milk only if it came from a special herd of cows, & used a
centrifuge at his lab to make his cream & butter…
The insulin hypothesis can be traced to the research of Lewis Cantley,
the director of the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College.
In the 1980s, Cantley discovered how insulin, which is released by the
pancreas & tells cells to take up glucose, influences what happens inside
a cell. Cantley now refers to insulin and a closely related hormone, IGF-1
(insulinlike growth factor 1), as “the champion” activators of metabolic
proteins linked to cancer. He’s beginning to see evidence, he says, that
in some cases, 'it really is insulin itself that’s getting the tumor
started.' 1 way to think about the Warburg effect, says
Cantley, is as the insulin, or IGF-1, signaling pathway “gone awry.
It’s cells behaving as though insulin were telling it to take up glucose
all the time and to grow.” Cantley, who avoids eating sugar as much as he
can, is currently studying the effects of diet on mice that have the
mutations that are commonly found in colorectal & other cancers. He says
that the effects of a sugary diet on colorectal, breast and other cancer
models 'looks very impressive' & 'rather scary.' Elevated
insulin is also strongly associated with obesity…

Artificial sweetener Aspartamine [NutraSweet, Spoonfulls, or

packaged) sucralose/Splenda and (pink packaged) Sweet-n-Low
(saccharin)*] & is often found in diet sodas. 50% of aspartame is
phenylalanine, an amino acid. Too much in the brain causes serotonin to
drop, leading to depression, craving for carbohydrates, and brain tumors.
40% of aspartame is aspartic acid, an amino acid, that when NOT bound to
protein causes an increase in aspartate, which may contribute to epilepsy,
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, & fetus damage. Same may apply to glutamate.
10% of aspartame is methanol (wood alcohol) which converts to
formaldehyde, which can damage the retina, optic nerve, DNA replication & the fetus.

The body’s inability to effectively break down sugar alcohols causes
them to arrive for the most part intact when they reach the intestines. At
that point, a process called 'passive diffusion' takes place whereby the
sugar alcohol that was consumed draws water into the bowels. This results
in only partial breakdown. The unmetabolized portion begins to ROT,
creating the perfect environment for undesirable bacteria &
pathogens to feed,
thrive, and grow.
An imbalanced intestinal environment where pathogens & other
undesirable microbes have a favorable place to exist is exactly the set
of conditions that eventually compromise the gut lining, damage the
enterocytes that line the gut wall, and promote the development of
autoimmune disease symptoms."

Researchers found fructose, one of the 2 main carbohydrates in refined
sugar, is primarily metabolized by the liver; while glucose
(found in starchy food like bread and potatoes) is metabolized by all
cells. This means consuming excessive fructose extra strain on the liver

insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome, which doctors now
generally acknowledge to be the major risk factor for heart disease,

Scientifically speaking, there is only one true cinnamon, which is
most commonly called "Ceylon cinnamon," and comes from the
plant Cinnamomum zeylanicum. An alternative scientific name for
Ceylon cinnamon is Cinnamomum verum, which simply translates as
"true cinnamon." The term "cassia" never refers to Ceylon cinnamon
but rather to other species of cinnamon, including Cinnamomum cassia
(alternatively called Cinnamomum aromaticaum) and
Cinnamomum burmannii. While most simply referred to as "cassia,"
you'll often find Cinnamomum aromaticaum being referred to as
"Chinese cinnamon" or "Saigon cinnamon." You'll find Cinnamomum
burmannii being called "Java cinnamon" or "Padang cassia."
Ceylon cinnamon is typically more expensive than any of the cassia
versions. Is also the cinnamon more closely associated with
potential health benefits involving blood sugar regulation. However,
since both forms belong not only to the same family of plants (Lauraceae,
the laurel family) but also to the same genus (Cinnamomum). They
share many characteristics. In some studies on rats and mice, the
cassia cinnamons have shown blood sugar regulating ability as well.
What true cinnamon and cassia do not have in common is their coumarin
content. Coumarins are naturally occurring plant components that can be
quite toxic in large amounts. These toxicities tend to affect the liver
and nervous system most directly. While the level of naturally occurring
coumarins in Ceylon cinnamon appears to be very small & lower than the
amount that could cause health risks, the level of naturally occurring
coumarins in the cassia cinnamons appears to be higher. (Remember CC
