Remarkable Raw Puer Tea

A day after my T2D diagnosis, my wife sent me the following article…

Pu’er tea a wonder cure for diabetics

The researchers carried out a test among 120 diabetic volunteers. They were asked to drink Pu’er regularly and stop their medicines, while making no change to their dietary habits. Seventy percent reported blood sugar levels lowered to below 7 mmol/L, with an average decrease of 35 percent.

That led me to try out some of the raw puer tea that I had tucked away…

The tea was from Hojo Tea

A week later I started this community page and posted this

Subsequently I continued to order and try a variety of raw Puer Tea and had remarkable results with a number of them…The dragon ball from Jing Mai region.

Also effective and affordable is the Purple Bud Puer Tea from Cai Ceng Tea company.

Another remarkably effective raw puer tea from the #景谷 region。Close to 90mg drop within 90 mins like emoticon.#stopdiabetes #puertea #T2D #古树春茶 #黄草坝 #普洱茶 http://world.taobao.com/item/523994553011.htm?fromSite=main10421303_10154084972004445_2106868845523307160_n

From the Bing Dao region

The effective raw puer tea is able to bring post meal glucose down below 90mg within 2 hours from rather elevated levels. Whether such sharp fluctuation is actually helpful is debatable, but that it is so effective is remarkable.

There’s many puer tea that have no effect…so do explore an try them out and find which one works best for you and though not a cure, it can perhaps help you maintain a healthy post-T2D-diagnosis medication free life.

Enjoy!

Some studies on Pu-erh Tea

Pu-erh tea extract ameliorates high-fat diet-induced nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and insulin resistance by modulating hepatic IL-6/STAT3 signaling in mice.

Notes: Most of the puer tea here are moderately priced between US$15-30 /kg. Given that each brew requires 5-8 grams of tea leaves…that is remarkably cost effective for glucose control.

Update Jan 2017:-

A year on my HbA1c remains at a stable 5.5%. I have since rely less on tea drinking for glucose control. The fact that strong tea induces hypoglycemia suggest that it may over stimulate insulin production. Given that T2D already has significant beta cells dysfunction and impairment, I concluded that it may be more beneficial to continue to manage glucose levels thru fats friendly diet/fasting.

    Hi, delighted to have stumbled on your blog and thanks for sharing about the wonders of PuEr for blood glucose control.

    I was diagnose in early Dec last yr with HbA1C of 8.6% and FBGL of 9.5 mmol.

    I immediately went on LCHF diet and did not take the Metformin and statin prescribed by the doctors.

    My glucometer tracking on daily basis 6 times a day pre and post meal now range between 5 to 7 mmol. The LFHC diet also cut down my LDL by 50%.

    I am intrigued why doctors and dietician here in Singapore are so resistent to using diet to contain diabetes but instead are trigger happy to prescribe drugs and advise patients to eat “balance” diet which contain high carbs and fruit fractose.
    Diabetes can be simply manage by cutting sugar and starch. And glucometer is a MUST for all diabetics. In fact, it should be made publicly available at affordable price to all diabetics as this is the BEST “medication” that will save many lives!
