Herbs and Dietary Supplements for Diabetes?

There are some herbs which have the capability for regulating blood sugar levels; they are known as hypo-glycemic herbs. These herbs naturally contain insulin and can be effective for people who have Type 2 Diabetic condition. These herbs are non toxic and effective.

  • Cinnamon: Can boost the ability of insulin to metabolize glucose.
  • Cayenne: Can significantly relieve nerve pain associated with diabetic neuropathy.
  • Garlic: Has demonstrated blood sugar lowering action.
  • Green Tea: Just two cups a day are recommended for antioxidants.
  • Ginseng Tea: May improve blood sugar control.
  • Kelp: Has many trace elements, chromium for one, which is important to carbohydrate metabolism.
  • Onions: Studies have shown the blood sugar lowering action of onions.
  • Bitter melon: Known to help regulate blood sugar levels.

If you’re just getting started with a holistic approach to managing your diabetes it’s probably best to make changes gradually (and under your doctor’s supervision) so that you won’t be overwhelmed and you will have a better chance of sticking to this new lifestyle. Remember be patient and kind with your self, while being self-disciplined. Change is difficult and consistency is key factor in improving your overall health.

    Any chance we can get a better picture to depict a diabetic? Although this is widely stereotypical of diabetics, the reality is far from the truth. Eating healthily for diabetics is great advice but we dont fit the stereotype, we are better than that
