Dog Grass has traditionally been used to treat problems of the urinary tract, kidney, gallbladder and prostate glands and to heal gout and rheumatism.
Dog Grass may lower blood sugars in people. The August 2005 edition of the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published a study noting a potent blood sugar lowering effect of this herb in rats. Dog Grass does not stimulate the release of insulin, but it appears to make cells much more sensitive to insulin, at least in the laboratory. Consult your physician before consuming Dog Grass if you are diabetic. Prolonged use may cause low potassium levels in the body. Not recommended while pregnant or breastfeeding.
