Cyanidin-3-O-Glucoside (Chrysanthemin) Supplementation Ameliorates Metabolic Insulin Resistance via Restoration of Nitric Oxide-Mediated Endothelial Insulin Transport

What is already known is that
-Anthocyanin improves insulin resistance.
-Endothelial insulin resistance impairs NO associated microvascular vasodilation: this produce less insulin transport to muscle and brain.

The Anthocyanin they tested is this one:


Chrysanthemin - Wikipedia
Natural occurrences
Chrysanthemin can be found in the roselle plant (Hibiscus sabdariffa, Malvaceae), different Japanese angiosperms,[1] Rhaponticum (Asteraceae),[2] The fruits of the smooth arrowwood (Viburnum dentatum, Caprifoliaceae) appear blue. One of the major pigments is cyanidin 3-glucoside, but the total mixture is very complex.[3]

In food
Chrysanthemin has been detected in blackcurrant pomace, in European elderberry,[4] in red raspberries, in soybean seed coats,[5] in Victoria plum,[6] in peach,[7] lychee and açaí.[8] It is found in red oranges[9] and black rice.[10]

It is the major anthocyanin in purple corn (Zea mays). Purple corn is approved in Japan and listed in the "Existing Food Additive List" as purple corn color.

I recently super beefed up my purple food intake.

Anti- blood stagnation. There are lots of intense purple foods (red, orange purple) all of which can be used to in my opinion. Dragon fruit for instance. (reminder: get some purple potatoes)

For the time being, I am using ACAI. Feel guilty, as its shipped in. And beefing up some other local berries. Which I just wasn't eating much of, I don't eat alot of fruit, due to my shaky status pre Type 2.

My gut and digestion has been ALOT better.

Anthocyanins are a powerful class of polyphenols. They are powerful antioxidants; it is oxidative stress that damages the cells.

I credit polyphenols for a good bulk of my recovery, I use more than anthocyanins.
