We studied the effect of a dietary supplement on blood glucose. This prospective, single-arm, unblinded clinical interventional study investigated the impact of a nutritional supplement combination on fasting glucose and glycated hemoglobin (A1c) levels, which were measured before and after the intervention. The supplement, which consisted of organic mulberry leaf extract, LactoSpore probiotics, and Fenumannan prebiotic, was given to adult (age ≥21 years) prediabetics and adults with type 2 diabetes (A1c >5.60 mg/dL). The study protocol comprised six phases including initial and final tests for fasting glucose and A1c, and a 12-week period of supplement administration. The statistical analyses were carried out using SPSS and Intellectus Statistics. A total of 24 participants completed the study. A reduction of 0.94% in the A1c level and 40.52% in the fasting glucose level were found. These preliminary findings suggest that the nutritional supplement combination might be clinically effective in reducing fasting glucose and A1c in prediabetic adults and those with type 2 diabetes.
An emerging direction of research focuses on the gut microbiome as a complex, metabolically active system whose metabolites can impact the development of cardiometabolic diseases by directly influencing the phenotype of the host.
Clinician Feedback from Prior Restorative Medicine Programs
My interest in Neurology spans decades… When AARM created a neurology fellowship program, I immediately jumped on the opportunity. And AARM delivered! There are clinical pearls to learn in every presentation and lecture, and a self-paced approach with modules and monthly webinars was exactly what I needed to work with my schedule. Proud to be officially done and certified!
I just wanted to tell you how truly wonderful I found this program--I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learned so much of interest and of use in my family practice. I'm disappointed that I've finished it! You all have done a beautiful job in organizing the program, as well as finding excellent speakers and choosing appropriate clinical topics. If only all webinars could be so riveting… Thank you for a rewarding experience!

I would like to thank AARM for having this kind of fellowship program. Distant learning is within reach. They have a variety of dynamic speakers from different fields of herbal medicine. Now I am more confident in treating my patients with this modality.

The Fellowship program from AARM is the perfect complement to my IFM certification�.Thank you to all the teachers who impart their years of practical knowledge to us.
I have attended many integrative medicine conferences, and I get so much more out of AARM. I feel the clinical pearls I learned are not only cutting-edge information but practical applications I can use immediately in the clinic. Both my patients and I are personally enriched and benefit from the knowledge and skills learned.
The Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine (AARM) is a non-profit medical association whose mission is to promote the use of, and education surrounding Restorative Medicines amongst medical professionals. AARM members are part of a community of like minded professionals who meet multiple times a year to discuss their latest findings in their respective fields. Through these conferences, as well as our herbal Fellowship program, AARM hopes to advance the use of Restorative Medicine as a foundation for health.
Restorative Medicine focuses on the importance of a balanced endocrine system through recognizing how the different chemical messengers influence each other. Stabilizing the endocrine system as a whole, rather than treating a single individual hormone, helps to optimize health and promote longevity. The ultimate goal of Restorative Medicine is to reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing medical treatment, when possible, by truly restoring health at its core.
There are several ways you can get involved in our movement! To start, we suggest becoming an AARM Member, which will give you access to botanical medicine and nutrition monographs, a listing in our practitioner directory, 20% off conference registrations, and more! Then, once you're ready, we invite you to attend one of our conferences or to take our Herbal Fellowship Course, both of which present opportunities to earn CME Credits! Or, if you're still exploring what Restorative Medicine has to offer, we recommend reading The Journal of Restorative Medicine, or its digest!
