Author(s): Honorio-França, Adenilda C.1; De Oliveira, Fabrício Carneiro2; França, Eduardo L.1; Ferrari, Carlos K. B.3

Objective: the aim of this work was to evaluate possible anti-diabetic effects of drinking sulphurous water on rats.

Materials and Methods: rats were separated in control group, sulphurous water group, alloxan-induced diabetes mellitus with or without sulphorous water drinking. Glycemia and blood superoxide dismutase (SOD) values were determined.

Results: alloxan-induced diabetic rats had increased glycemic values and massive oxidative stress evidenced by decreased SOD values. Sulphurous water drinking reversed the diabetic effects of alloxan.

Conclusion: sulphurous water reversed the hyperglycemic state of rats and improved SOD synthesis, offering beneficial effects for diabetics.
