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.


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.
