London-based nutraceutical company tackling diabetes – and triumphing

Article-London-based nutraceutical company tackling diabetes – and triumphing

Nutritional supplement Ojamin Herb & Fruit has proven to have remarkable effects on diabetes. During standard clinical testing, Ojamin was shown to be more effective in improving the side effects of diabetes than existing pharmaceutical medication prescribed by GPs.

The restorative, nature-driven supplement promotes overall wellness, and clinical studies have found that Ojamin is more effective than prescription diabetes medication Metformin. Pre-clinical studies have also shown that Ojamin’s active ingredients help repair liver cells damaged by fatty liver disease. Increased fat deposits in the liver can be caused a poor diet, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Studies have indicated that Ojamin can help boost the effects of traditional medication by counteracting side effects and potentially leading to a reversal of type 2 diabetes. 

Ojamin fits neatly into any nutritional regime as it is vegan friendly, gluten free and can be taken alongside other prescribed medication. Packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins, Ojamin is available in both tonic and capsule form.


The supplement is a unique blend of 14 herbs and fruits sustainably sourced from the world's rainforests and blended together using pure spring water. Inspired by L.K. Tate’s traditional Indian Ayurvedic tonic, key ingredients include turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory, aloe vera, proven to strengthen hair and nails, and neem which helps to regulate blood glucose levels. 

The original formula has been refined by MedTate, founded by L.K. Tate’s grandson, Pete Tate in 2011, and contains herbs sourced from pristine forests in India which are free from fertilisers, pesticides and GMOs, then combined with pure spring water. Other key ingredients include basil, beleric, bitter melon, cumin, gooseberry, bael, haritaki, fenugreek, java plum, neem, okra, and watermelon seeds – all of which have been found to have nutritional benefits.

Commenting on the benefits of Ojamin, Pete Tate said: “Ojamin Herb & Fruit has long been used as a health and wellness supplement. The formula is packed with key natural ingredients which have individually been proven to support a healthy lifestyle and over all wellbeing. Not only this, but our supplement has been clinically proven to have remarkable effects on diabetes and has shown its potential to be able to reverse type 2 diabetes.

“Supplements should not be used to cure illness or disease, however studies have shown that the potency of Ojamin Herb & Fruit could greatly benefit those suffering from diabetes and those who wish to prevent the condition.”

In the UK, Ojamin is fully approved by DEFRA, the Food Standards Agency and MHRA. The supplement can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways, including in hot or cold water, juice or hot drinks such as tea or soup.
