Default Crepe Myrtle's Effect on Blood Sugar

I was discussing medicinal plants with a friend and neither of us could think of a use for crepe myrtle. So, after some research he came up with this little factoid.

I think it deserves some attention:


What if someone told you that your diabetes symptoms could be relieved with the leaves of that beautiful, flower-laden tree growing in your front yard? You may be surprised to learn that traditional herbal medicine deals with diabetes by using a natural source of insulin contained in the leaves of the crepe myrtle tree. This makes crepe myrtle a viable natural treatment to help diabetics rise above the pain, without side effects.
Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly.
Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably,
and never regret anything that made you smile.

Women are Angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible like that
