Arrow Natural Ways to Regulate Blood Sugar

Here are some natural ways to regulate blood sugar, remember when using any vitamins or supplements to always research any side effects or drug interactions....especially if you're on prescription drugs already.

More info here: http://energytimes.com/pages/feature...cosechart.html


Chromium
Trace mineral found in small amounts in most foods; good sources include brewer’s yeast, broccoli and tomatoes Needed to create a molecule, LMWCr, that helps insulin drive glucose into the body’s cells; low levels have been linked to high blood sugar levels

Cinnamon

Cinnamomum zeylanicum, from the inner bark of a tree native to Sri Lanka and parts of southern India Contains compounds that increase insulin sensitivity and promote cellular uptake of glucose; inhibits breakdown of starch to sugar in the intestines; has reduced glucose levels in people with diabetes
Coenzyme Q10
A substance found in most of the body’s cells; also known as ubiquinol; meat and fish are among the richest sources Crucial for conversion of glucose into energy within the cell and helps fight oxidative stress, both important factors in diabetes; supplementation in diabetics has shown various benefits

Fenugreek

Trigonella foenum-graecum, the leaves and seeds of which have long been used in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking Has shown an ability to balance glucose levels; has inhibited progression from prediabetes to diabetes and prevented diabetic nerve damage in studies

Garlic
Allium sativum L., used in cultures around the world as a culinary and medicinal herb Helps lower glucose levels and fights oxidation and inflammation; also supports overall cardiovascular health, a major concern in people with diabetes

Ginseng*
Panax ginseng, long used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a restorative tonic An analysis of 16 clinical trials found ginseng to “modestly yet significantly” improve fasting glucose levels; studies have linked the herb’s glucose-lowering ability to improved mental functioning

Guggul
Commiphora mukul, a small tree native to northern India; guggul is a resin taken from the bark Has shown an ability to help reduce glucose levels; also helps to counteract unhealthy cholesterol conditions, which often occur in people with diabetes

Inulin
A type of dietary fiber called an oligosaccharide, found in many plants; most supplements use chicory inulin Has helped lower glucose levels in studies; may promote greater appetite regulation and reduce food intake, key factors in weight loss (maintaining a healthy weight helps prevent diabetes)

Lipoic Acid
An antioxidant that occurs in two forms, alpha and
racemic lipoic acid; found in yeast, liver and other foods Not only fights free radicals itself but also helps recharge other antioxidants; has reduce insulin resistance in studies; helps protect nerves against damage caused by high glucose levels

Rhemannia*
Rhemannia glutinosa, an herb native to China, where it is a staple remedy in TCM Has reduced glucose levels and inflammation markers in studies; used by traditional healers to treat inflammation of the kidneys, which are often damaged by high blood sugar levels

Seaweed Extract*
Extracts taken from two species, Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosus Helps to block the conversion of starch into sugar within the intestines, blunting post-meal glucose spikes; may promote weight control



Vitamin D
A fat-soluble nutrient created in skin that is exposed to sunshine; food sources include fish and egg yolks Plays a role in promoting healthy insulin production; low vitamin D levels have been linked to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes

Cinnamon sounds like a good cheap remedy for diabetes or high blood sugar.
