1. Conversion of glucose to vitamin C
Humans are one of the few species who lack the enzyme to convert glucose to vitamin C. According to the scientific study, Gynura procumbens leaves are rich in enzymes and coenzymes which have ability to convert glucose to vitamin C in vitro. By taking orally it may transform plasma glucose to ascorbic acid inside our body.
2. Anti-diabetic Action
The ethanol extract of Gynura procumbens was reported to have anti-hyperglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic activities in diabetic rats. The extract of Gynura procumbens leaves may have biguanide-like activity. The extract showed similar effect to metformin by improving glucose tolerance (OGTT) in STZ-induced diabetic rats. The methanol extract and n-butanol fraction exerted a significant hypoglycemic effect when administered orally to streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The leaf extract of G. procumbens significantly reverses the adverse effects of elevated accumulation of intracellular glucose. It may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
3. Anti-hypertensive action
Gynura procumbens extract (GPE) administered rats had significantly lower serum lactate dehydrogenase, creatine phosphokinase and increased nitric oxide, a known vasodilator and decreased the systolic & diastolic blood pressure. Glycoconjugated or peptidal substances found in GPE that exhibit an inhibitory effect on ACE. It is useful for prevention and treatment of hypertension through increasing nitric oxide production in blood vessels.
