Trehala manna, also known simply as shakar tigal, is a substance that was historically believed to be a sweet substance derived from the nests of certain insects, particularly scale insects. These insects secrete a sugary substance as they feed on plant sap, and this secretion forms a protective covering over the insects.
Some studies suggest that trehala manna may have antioxidant properties, which can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. Antioxidants are believed to play a role in reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
Trehala manna has been investigated for its potential immunomodulatory effects. It may have the ability to modulate the immune system, helping to balance its activity.
There is some research suggesting that trehala manna may have hepatoprotective (liver-protecting) effects. It might help protect the liver from certain toxins and improve liver function.
Trehala manna has been studied for its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is associated with various health conditions, and substances with anti-inflammatory effects may have potential therapeutic benefits.
Some research has explored the possible anti-diabetic effects of trehala manna. It may have a role in regulating blood sugar levels and improving insulin sensitivity.
