Poterium Spinosum: natural ingredient of KalospeedThe decoction of the root of Poterium is very well known among the Bedouins as anti-
diabetic and it is for this reason that the Bedouins of Syria are hardly affected by diabetes mellitus despite having a diet rich in carbohydrates.

The reason for this refractoriness to contract diabetes is due to the tradition of drinking a decoction of the roots of a shrub that grows in the desert. The Bedouins cook the root in the morning and still make it cook over low heat during the day so that it is ready for drinking earlier in the evening.

The Arabs call this plant Schico Netesh, the Turks Abdest Bozan otu, while the plant is called in Hebrew Sira kotzanith. Alicante, Spain, it is traditional to use the aerial parts of Poterium ancistroides Desf as popular a cure for diabetes.

The first indications of the antidiabetic Poterium Spinosum appear in a publication in the journal “Selecta” No. 1, 1962 (Selecta-Verlag, Planegg bei munchen) where it is reported that a group of researchers who sought medicinal plants in the desert north-east of Syria, had identified a plant rich in active ingredients that could be used in the treatment of diabetes mellitus.

The group formed by chemists and pharmacologists under the direction of Dr. Aiman Kuzbari, had noted that at the Bedouin populations, those who had been diagnosed with certainty diabetes, taking a decoction made from the roots of a shrub growing in the desert areas.

The intake of the product, which had lasted for several months, eliminated all the symptoms of the disease, although the patients did not observe a strict dietary regimen being particularly their feeding provided with of carbohydrates. The clinical assessment made after the treatment, which lasted a year, did not show none recurrence of the disease.

The German chemist of the groupwho had arrived to ascertain some active principles of the plant, died following an accident near the Syrian- Turkish frontier and since he had written most of his documentation in encrypted code, these were subsequently unusable.
