The antihyperglycemic effects of chemically synthesized d-chiro-inositol (d-CI), a component of an insulin mediator, have been demonstrated in rats. Buckwheat contains relatively high levels of d-CI: thus, it has been proposed as a source of d-CI for reducing serum glucose concentrations in diabetics. The present study evaluates the effects of a buckwheat concentrate, containing d-CI, on hyperglycemia and glucose tolerance in streptozotocin (STZ) rats. In fed STZ rats, both doses of the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Hypoglycemic and hepatoprotective effects of D-chiro-inositol-enriched tartary buckwheat extract in high fructose-fed mice.
TLDR
Findings are the first to demonstrate that the intake of DTBE may be a feasible preventive or therapeutic strategy for HF diet-induced hyperglycemia, hepatic steatosis and oxidative injury.
Extracts of common buckwheat bran prevent sucrose digestion.
TLDR
The data indicate that components of BBE other than rutin have inhibitory activity against sucrase in vivo, and suggest that BBE could have beneficial effects on diabetes.
D-chiro-inositol-enriched tartary buckwheat bran extract lowers the blood glucose level in KK-Ay mice.
TLDR
Oral administration of DCI-enriched TBBE could lower plasma glucose, C-peptide, glucagon, triglyceride, and BUN, improve glucose tolerance, and enhance insulin immunoreactivity in KK-A(y) mice.
EVALUATION OF BUCKWHEAT FOR MANAGEMENT OF DIABETES
TLDR
It was indicated that the oral administration of CBE and TBE could lower the blood glucose level and can increase glucose tolerance effectively and demonstrated that TBF contains higher nutritional contact as compared to CBF.
Antihypertensive effects of Tartary buckwheat flavonoids by improvement of vascular insulin sensitivity in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
TLDR
Quercetin was identified as the predominant active component of TBF in attenuating the development of hypertension with regard to reducing vascular oxidative stress, regulating the vascular insulin signaling pathway and restoring vasodilator response to insulin in the SHRs.
The Effect of Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) Groats Addition to the Lard Diet on Antioxidant Parameters of Plasma and Selected Tissues in Wistar Rats
TLDR
Buckwheat groats indicate a beneficial effect in inhibiting protein and lipid peroxidation in rats and improved lipid profile, suggesting that buckwheatGroats exert a significant antioxidant potential and may be used as normal food constituent to ameliorate the oxidant-induced damage in organism.
Effect of rutin from tartary buckwheat sprout on serum glucose-lowering in animal model of type 2 diabetes
TLDR
Rutin can play a critical role in down-regulation of serum glucose level in type 2 diabetes and down-regulated the expression levels of protein-tyrosine phosphatase 1B in a dose-dependent manner.
Buckwheat as a Functional Food and Its Effects on Health.
TLDR
Recent research regarding the health benefits of BW is reviewed, in vitro and in vivo, focusing on the specific role of its bioactive compounds and on the mechanisms by which these effects are exerted.

Chiroinositol deficiency and insulin resistance. II. Acute effects of D-chiroinositol administration in streptozotocin-diabetic rats, normal rats given a glucose load, and spontaneously insulin-resistant rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
D-CI administration, therefore, lowered elevated plasma glucose in streptozotocin-treated hyperglycemic rats, normal rats given a glucose load, and spontaneously insulin-resistant monkeys with or without noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
Antihyperglycemic effects of 3-O-methyl-D-chiro-inositol and D-chiro-inositol associated with manganese in streptozotocin diabetic rats.
TLDR
Three components of the pH 2.0 putative mediator of insulin action and D-Chiro-inositol and manganese are examined in low dose streptozotocin-treated rats, having an important role in glucose uptake, insulin release and mediator generation.
Urinary chiro-Inositol and myo-inositol Excretion is Elevated in the Diabetic db/db Mouse and Streptozotocin Diabetic Rat
TLDR
Urinary excretion of chiro-inositol and myo-inosltol excretion was elevated in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus, concomitant with hyperglycemia and glucosuria.
Effects of insulin and dietary myoinositol on impaired peripheral motor nerve conduction velocity in acute streptozotocin diabetes.
TLDR
It is suggested that insulin deficiency, and possibly hyperglycemia, are primary factors in the development of imparied MNCV in acute experimental diabetes.
Insulin mediators in man: effects of glucose ingestion and insulin resistance
TLDR
The data suggest that the pH 2.0 IPG plays an important role in mediating insulin's effect on peripheral glucose utilization in man under physiological conditions, and shows a defective change in the bioactivity of an insulin mediator isolated from insulin-resistant humans after hyperinsulinaemia, suggesting that inadequate generation/release of IPGs is associated with insulin resistance.

TLDR
It is known at the molecular level that glycogen synthase and pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC), the first rate-limiting enzymes in the respective metabolic pathways involved in these effects, are each activated by insulin-induced dephosphorylation.
