How to Make Jamun Seed Powder Which Controls Diabetes Mellitus Type 2





Introduction: How to Make Jamun Seed Powder Which Controls Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

We have a huge Jamun tree (Botanical name : Syzygium cumini) at our home garden, which bears deep purple colored fruits during the months of June and July. The fruits are also known as Jambul or Indian Blackberry having sweet and sour taste. All parts of this tree, leaves, bark, fruit and seeds have medicinal properties and are being used in Ayurvedic medicine for treatment of various ailments. The dried seed powder is known to control Type 2 Diabetes and is even sold in Amazon and ebay stores.

This instructable will guide you in simple steps on how to make Jamun seed powder easily at home.

Step 1: Separate Seeds From Fruits

  • Clean the fruits and keep in a medium sized container
  • Squeeze out the seeds with your fingers to remove the flesh and store in a different container
  • Wash the seeds thoroughly so that any remaining flesh attached to the seeds are cleaned out
  • Make a smoothie with the seedless fruits and enjoy

The last picture shows the washed seeds ready for drying

Step 2: Sun-dry the Seeds

Spread the seeds in a clean cloth and keep it in the sun for drying. After two to three days in the sun, the outer shell becomes loose and can be very easily peeled off.

Step 3: Peel Off the Outer Shell

Once the outer shell becomes dry, you can very easily peel of the skin and collect the green inner core of the seeds.

Step 4: Dry the Inner Core

The green inner core can be easily broken into pieces by pressing with your fingers, which will accelerate the drying process. Keep them in the sun for few more days till they are completely dried.

Step 5: Make Powder

  • Using a mixture-grinder, powder the dried seeds.
  • Sieve the crushed seeds.
  • Repeat crushing and sieving few more times till most of the dried seed powder passes through the sieve.
  • Do not throw away the remains. You can mix them with the sieved powder.
  • Store the powder in air-tight container.

Our Jamun seed powder is ready

Step 6: How to Use the Jamun Seed Powder

Take about half a tea-spoon, that is about 3 grams, of the seed powder early morning with water in empty stomach. If you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes, this seed powder will bring you great relief.

    I had no idea that I had type II diabetes. I was diagnosed at age 50, after complaining to my doctor about being very tired. There is no family history of this disease. I'm a male and at the time of diagnosis, I weighed about 215. (I'm 6'2")Within 6 months, I had gained 30 to 35 pounds, and apparently the diabetes medicines (Actos and Glimiperide) are known to cause weight gain. I wish my doctor had mentioned that, so I could have monitored my weight more closely. I was also taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily December 2017our family doctor started me on Green House Herbal Clinic Diabetes Disease Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case blurred vision, frequent urination, or weakness

    Visit Green House Herbal Clinic official website www. greenhouseherbalclinic .com.I amstrong again and able to go about daily activities.This is a breakthrough for all diabetes sufferers

    I'd like to see a proper reference to prove the efficacy against Type II diabetes?,+Karonda,+Jamun+and+Jackfruit.pdf/1d433a1e-b95f-4c68-93aa-812de0608a80

    None of those links are proper medical references - there are no proper double-blind trials referenced, anecdotes are presented as facts, and several wildly inaccurate, even dangerous claims are made, such as herbal medicines have no harmful side-effects, or that self-medication can cure cancer!

    Sorry, I'm not going to stop anybody taking the seeds, but nobody should expect any sort of genuine medical benefit when they do.

    I hope all our ancestors survived on herbal medicine only. Jamun seed powder has been used in Ayurvedic medicines to control type 2 Diabetes for more than hundred years. Whether you accept it or not is none of my business and nobody in India needs your recommendation to try or not to try this

    Just because a treatment has history, that does not mean it is effective - people on the Indian sub-continent have been drilling holes in peoples' heads to treat persistent headaches since the stone-age - would you advocate that as a modern alternative remedy?

    Also Type II diabetes was only identified in 1935, and is only really a problem in populations with a high level of obesity and low level of physical activity, so I would take some issue with anybody making those claims.

    One final point - "Alternative" medicines which have been found to actually work have a special name; medicine.

    Apparently huge numbers of skinny undernourished people in the Phillipines are type 2 diabetics (from a doctor who worked there) diabetes is not just a condition of obesity. There is one published trial showing cinnamon may help in reducing bgl levels, can't answer for this plant, take care out there folks

    yes cinnamon too is beneficial, just in a very small amount as it has warm properties, my mother has type 2 diabetes and she takes cinnamon in her tea. Diabetes exists from the time before even ayurved existed, in ayurved diabetes is called "madhumeh", madhu in hindi means sugar or sweet. And there are many things that are prescribed in ayurved for diabetes including bitter gourd, cinnamon, jamun, anwala or indian gooseberry and so on......indian people have existed on these remedies even before the invention of homeopathy or allopathy, so this kiteman should fly kites instead of preaching people, off course people in India take the regular medicines as well as these natural medicines.....ayurvedic doctors in india are certified doctors from the government, ayurved is a science not some superstition that this person claims......he has no knowledge of what India and its culture is, and the link which he gave belongs to some fool who writes everything against hindus, his blog is full of hatred and false information and the fact is that not only hindus but every other religion that exists on this secular land use these remedies as they are proven, they don't need any certificate from any medical institutions though they have but they actually have been used by real people for centuries who are the living proof and certificate.

    I'm sorry you see hatred - my motivation is care, care for strangers who might decide to take unknown vegetable substances without and knowledge of the possible effects or side-effects. Yes, there are many traditional medications, but many of them are actually dangerous to the patient.

    Those that seem beneficial get tested, properly, and if they are beneficial the active ingredients are identified, purified and administered in properly controlled doses (for instance, foxgloves seemed to calm the heart, but an overdose stopped the heart. The purified form is a valuable medicine; digitalis.)

    My comments have absolutely nothing to do with culture or religion.

    You said; course people in India take the regular medicines as well as these natural medicines...

    So, how do you know it is the traditional medicines that help? Of course, you don't. That is why we must properly test claims such as these.

    Actually, Kiteman, the trepanning you describe hasn't been going on since the stone age. Trepanning is a conventional medical practice, which is actually still done today in Western conventional medicine. Type II Diabetes was "not" identified in 1935. It was a disease that was well known even in conventional medicine long before that. Even though insulin was discovered in 1921, Banting and Best knew about both "types" of diabetes. Best's further research resulted in understanding even more information about the nutrients needed by the body to "treat" the disease in all its forms. Diabetes of all kinds can affect any population and is not limited to the "obese" at all. This is not shocking information, it's basic pathophysiology and medical history.

    As for your "final" point about alternative medicine: given that Ayurveda has been practiced for more than 5000 years with excellent results, and herbal medicine has been practiced worldwide since the beginnings of life on the planet, TCM has been practiced for 5000 years as well, and even homeopathy has been consistently effective without ever changing its basic exact scientific method for over 200 years (and we all know theories and "knowledge" in conventional medicine are exploded and proven useless every 20 years or so, and pharmaceuticals and surgical procedures like bloodletting and trepanning are exposed as deadly yet still practiced by conventional medical doctors even today) it's quite clear which medicines have been consistently proven effective and which "medicines" are questionable. All we know from long term observation is that if the older and more consistent forms of medical treatments failed to be effective, then humanity would have died out, especially in the cultures where these ancient forms were developed. Guess what? They have not and they still thrive using those medicines.

    That said, Antoniraj has posted a very clear and useful protocol for preparing this well established and effective ayurvedic medicine for those who use ayurveda to treat their ailments. If you don't believe in Ayurveda, and you don't believe in szygium, don't use it. But don't come here and troll your lack of knowledge to others. This is a place where people share information with those who seek out how to accomplish what they wish to accomplish on their own. If someone gains a benefit from using this herbal preparation and you just can't stand it because it doesn't fit in with your ideas about medicine, you might simply want to stay out of the thread. No one needs you to police his or her health choices.
