CSIR’s Anti-Diabetes Ayurvedic Drug BGR-34 Priced ‘High’ Hits Markets

Though not gone through clinical tests on humans like many allopathic drugs, a partically validated anti-diabetes herbal drug called BGR-34 was launched commercially by a Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) lab in Lucknow on Sunday, assuring that it has no side effects.

Priced relatively much higher than an allopathic drug at Rs.5 per tablet, the drug manufactured by Aimil Pharmaceuticals, has been jointly developed by two CSIR laboratories, National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) and Central Institute for Medicinal and Aromatic Plant (CIMAP) — both funded by government and the tax money collected from the public.

It was officially launched on the 62nd annual day of the NBRI for commercial manufacturing, but the price revealed has come as a shocker without any explanation. There are many Ayurvedic drugs for diabetes available in the market but the BGR-34 claims that it was scientifically proved on animals and "achieved 67%" success, while no proof of it has been uploaded by the NBRI on its website.

"The drug has extracts from four plants mentioned in Ayurveda and that makes it safe," said Dr AKS Rawat, senior principal scientist, NBRI. It was not made clear whether the drug has undergone any officially prescribed test on humans or not. "It has been tested on animals and scientific study has found it safe and effective, with clinical trials showing 67% success," said the scientist without giving the details.

The NBRI claims that the drug boosts immune system, works as antioxidant and checks free radicals and help maintain normal blood glucose levels, reduce chances of complications due to persistent high blood glucose levels and impart a good quality life to patients with high blood sugar levels.

While the allopathic medicine for diabetes called Melmet is sold Rs.25 for 15 tablets, almost Re.1.60 per tablet, the Ayurvedic medicine at Rs.5 per tablet is an eye-opener in a country like India where the Ayurvedica and Herbal medicines are funded by the government but priced high in the commercial market.

"We will manufacture it now and it will be available in market shortly," says V S Kapoor, marketing head of Aimil Pharmaceuticals for UP and Delhi. It is priced at Rs 500 for 100 tablets.

However, the major complaint on all Ayurvedic medicines is that they have not been put through the rigorous human clinical trial and very often touted to be "without side effects", which is not always true.

  17. I read your article where u said, “BGR 34 is really not a recommended medicine” because you suffered from gastric disorders and severe allergy all over your body. It is really a big problem that you are facing .But it’s really a strange thing that any ayurvedic medicine has shown any side effect. I recommend this medicine to my neighbor she uses this medicine since last 2 months but doesn’t suffer any problems. Have you contact CSIR or AIMIL about your problem.

Sir I heard about your BGR-34. & I want to use this medicine. So you are warm requested to kindly guide me what will be does & till how long have to take? Also guide can I take with English Medicine which presently I am taking (Zoryl-2).? I shall be OBLIGED & THANKFUL to you for this kind co-operation.

  19. Today I have bought BGR-34. From tomorrow I will start this medicine. Then I will share my experience with you people. My recent blood sugar fasting levels are 253 and HBA1c is 10.90. Let’s wait and see the effects. Till then goodbye and wish me gud luck!

  20. Reference to the mentioned side effects from Ayurvedic Diabetes Drug BGR-34. It may be noted that the drug has been thoroughly

    pre-clinical and clinically studied for efficacy & safety and is duly licensed by State Licensing Authority (ISM) and is composed from all known herbs used in the country since centuries. Anyhow, based on sensitization of individual, even if the claimed allergic or gastric discomfort is felt the concern along with the medical reports should contact NBRI-CIMAP, medical officials or the manufacturer at their New Delhi Office.

  21. BGR 34 is really not a recommended medicine, i took the dosage for nearly 10 days initially i was suffering from gastric disorders and now i have a severe allergy all over my body… So i wont recommend the tablet to anyone.

  22. Kya muje ye tablet mil sakti hain, I m living in mumbai. Plz tell me.

  23. try to where bgr_34 tablets available in a.p&karnataka

  24. Today I have got the BGR-34. Shall start taking twice a day from tomorrow and also shall continue the present allopathic medicines which I have been taking. Shall get my Blood and Urine checked after a week. If I achieve 90 for fasting and 120 for post lunch sugar, I shall think that the drug has worked.

  25. Arunima Dasgupta

    With great hope I want to share few words.As becaz we ,diabetics are having a hope to reverse the inconvenience, we always jump to the field ‘shall I be cured with this med?’ So I personally would like to know little more about bgr34 so that I get d benefit . Good wishes to all.Nothing b is impossible. ……

  26. Sir , kya up me available ho chuki hai Yeh pills

  27. Kindly let me know from where to collectBGR 34

  28. I am surprised that CSIR is claiming this to be the first Scientifically Validated Anti Diabetes Ayurvedic Medicine as Ayusante Gluco Health is available in the market since April 2014. Maybe AIMIL has had to shed a lot of bucks for that lie. And unlike BGR 34, Gluco Health has been clinically tested on humans too with direct comparisons with Metformin, Roziglutazone etc. Anybody who wants to get good results in Diabetes can contact me, the price for Gluco Health is Rs.575

    When I was a child during the period between 1936 and 1948 my parents treated many diseases by local herbs or its products. I survived typhoid with that. Indian herbs are all medicinal plants. Let us survey for their medicinal properties. Tribal people treat their diseases and other maladies with locally available herbs. With the advent of modern medicine, most of the population forgot or neglected indigenous ways of treating diseases.
    Psoriasis is cured with the herbal extract of Wrightia tinctoria. This tree is a common tree growing in hilly forests in India, Vietnam and Australia. Medicine alone can not cure. Along with herbal medication the patient has to boost immunity by following healthy life style including 1. Early to bed and good rest 2. Diet includes vegetables, fruits and whole grains 3. Regular physical activity 4 Regular excretion through sweat, urine, breathe and stool 5 Positive emotion.. No smoking, drinking, soft drinks. No coloured or preservative food additives.
    Not only psoriasis pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, lupus and other autoimmune diseases are cured with Wrightia tinctoria. Indian herbs are GOLD MINE. Let us explore.

  68. Can anyone care enough to give more info on this BGR-34, what are active ingredients, what is the mechanism of action and what kind of scientific literature basis and any clinical trial studies – otherwise it will end up becoming another quack medicine…

  69. Happy to know about medicine to control blood sugar .send me ,price list ,which contents, used by u.
