Jamun isn’t a well-known fruit in the western world, but it is very popular in traditional Ayurvedic remedies. Every part of this fruit has some type of anti-diabetic property, namely due to the ellagic acid and glycosides in the fruit. These compounds can help the pancreas manage the levels of insulin in the body, and help blood sugar levels stay even. Jamun can be consumed in many different ways, but most people prefer to mash the fruit after boiling it in water to soften the flesh. Although primarily found in the East, jamun can be found in some exotic import stores and grocers.
