As per the study, which was led by Dr Sudhir Chandra Sarangi — additional professor at Department of Pharmacology, AIIMS, the anti-diabetic herbal drug BGR-34 was helpful not only in reduction of fasting blood sugar through modulation of hormonal profile along with a significant body weight reduction but there were other benefits too.
