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 properties to positively affect blood glucose metabolism (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.

Natural support for health

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 and increased glucose uptake. Furthermore, stable and healthy blood glucose levels help to manage appetite.

Science

An in vitro study showed that 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 clinical study provided in vivo evidence for positive effects of the ingredient on blood sugar levels. Sixty-three patients with type 2 diabetes received 180 mg purslane herb extract or placebo daily for 12 weeks. After six weeks, HbA1c levels in blood 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.
