I'd like to know what plant this is- a patient says she uses it daily to control her Diabetes.
79 yr patients cure for diabetes!!!
We are in the medical profession and are just concerned if it's safe for consumption - and what is the name of the plant.
It looks like a succulent.I thought of purslane ... But am not sure.
Hi, Amendri -
This is definitely not purslane.
I submitted it to some plant identification specialists to see what they came up with, and their best guess was Plectranthus amboinicus, also known as Cuban oregano or Indian borage.
But I've never heard of this plant helping in diabetes control before.
What does the patient call it? Does it have any smell? Does it flower?
Any information you might have would be helpful.
Anyone else have any ideas as to what this plant might be?
