Ayurvedic Proprietary Medicine


Hyponidd is an ayurvedic proprietary medicine used for controlling hyperglycemia (high blood sugar in diabetes mellitus) and treating irregular menstruation due to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It is used as supportive therapy for the management of the polycystic ovarian disease and helps to regulate the menstrual cycle.

Its ingredients have antihyperglycemic effects and help to normalize blood sugar level. However, it gives promising results in recently diagnosed cases of diabetes mellitus type II. In severe cases of diabetes, it can be used as adjuvant to modern anti-diabetic drugs, but cannot be used as the main medicine. It is likely to be effective for pre-diabetic people and people with mildly elevated blood sugar level (mild diabetes).

The positive thing, it never causes hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood sugar level) like modern anti-diabetic drugs because its ingredients have antihyperglycemic effects. Actually, hypoglycemic is a wrong term used for it or its ingredients; the better term for its action is antihyperglycemic.
