Citrus Peel Reduces Insulin Resistance for Diabetics

According to a North American study, daily supplement of an extract from citrus peel could reduce insulin resistance in hamsters, suggesting the extract might also help prevent diabetes in humans.

This study provides novel evidence that PMF reverse hypertriglyceridimia and restores insulin sensitivity,said researchers from the University of Hawaii, in collaboration with KGK Synergize, a Canadian nutraceutical company.

PMFs are similar to other plant pigments found in citrus fruits that have been increasingly linked to health benefits, including protection against cancer, heart disease and inflammation. The main PMFs in the extracts are tangeretin and nobiletin, as well as small amounts of synephrine.
