Scientists have shown that the roots of Sarcopoterium spinosum, a Mediterranean shrub related to the garden rose, exhibit anti-diabetic properties. In a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, they sought to examine whether the same anti-diabetic properties could be found in the plant’s aerial organs.
The researchers concluded that S. spinosum’s aerial organs had anti-diabetic properties and could serve as the basis for finding an alternative treatment for type II diabetes.
