Traditional Use

Rich in valuable nutrients, the fleshy leaves of purslane are appreciated as a culinary ingredient worldwide.
Purslane also has a long tradition of medicinal use. In Near Eastern folk medicine the plant is treasured for its antidiabetic
properties. Purslane has been used as a remedy for a variety of ailments such as head and stomach ache or urinary discomfort in different parts of the world. It was also treasured as a blood purifying remedy.

Science

An in vitro study showed Portusana®induced the translocation of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) from intracellular storage compartments to the plasma membrane in an insulin-like manner. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial underlined the beneficial effects. Sixty-three patients with type 2 diabetes received 3x 60mg purslane herb extract or placebo daily for 12 weeks. After six weeks, HbA1c had improved in almost 80% of patients. After 12 weeks, the responder subgroup analysis revealed that HbA1c declined significantly more in the purslane extract group than the placebo group.

Natural Health Benefits

Portusana® helps to regulate the glucose metabolism protecting the body from the negative effects resulting from
high blood sugar levels. It acts through three key mechanisms: reduction of intestinal glucose absorption, increased insulin
sensitivity, increased glucose uptake. Furthermore, stable and healthy blood glucose levels help to manage appetite.
