Marmite can cure diabetes

Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Thursday, March 24, 2011

London: Marmite, a brown-coloured spread made from yeast, could save the lives of millions of people �because it contains a vitamin that protects against some potentially fatal heart conditions and diabetes, scientists have claimed.

Tests show that vitamin B1, which occurs naturally in yeast-based foods, may prove to be a potential lifesaver for �people with diabetes, reports

The discovery could offer fresh hope to people who have diabetes and face an increased risk of heart problems.

Scientists from Bristol University have shown that a form of vitamin B1 protects heart cells from damage.

Although the tests have only been carried out in mice, they hope that further trials will show that the compound - also known as benfotiamine - can also work in humans.

Paolo Madeddu who led the study, said: 'Supplementation with benfotiamine from early stages of diabetes improved the �survival and healing of the hearts of diabetic mice that have had heart attacks.'

'We conclude that benfotiamine could be a novel treatment for people with diabetes, and the next step in this research will be testing whether similar �effects are seen in humans,' he said.
