What is Naringin?
Naringin belongs to the group of flavonoids. Pure naringin is a yellowish powder. Naringin is a conjugate of a sugar molecule with naringenin. The structure of naringin is very similar to that of hesperidin.
Health Benefits of Naringin
Prevent and treat cancer.
Naringin has also been shown to enhance the effects of drugs used to treat cancer. In laboratory studies, naringin has been shown to reduce damage to healthy cells and increase sensitivity of cancerous cells exposed to the conventional chemotherapy drugs bleomycin and doxorubicin.
Regulate blood sugar in diabetes.
Preliminary studies indicate that the hypoglycemic effects of naringin may be useful in regulating blood glucose levels in patients with diabetes. In a 2008 study, treating diabetic rats with high doses of naringin and Vitamin C regulated blood sugar levels as effectively as insulin alone.
Naringin has also been shown to help prevent eye and nerve damage in people with diabetes.
Improve heart health.
Some studies have shown that naringin increases levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol, which helps to slow accumulation of artery-clogging plaque. In a 2004 study, naringin was as effective as the conventional medication lovastatin in decreasing total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol in rats. Naringin also seemed to prevent damage to the aortic wall. In a small double blind, crossover study of 12 patients with high blood pressure, drinking juice with a high content of naringin and narirutin (another citrus flavonoid) significantly reduced diastolic blood pressure (the lower number in the blood pressure reading) compared to juice with 1/4- 1/3 less naringin and narirutin content.
