Which Blood Glucose Supplements Lower Blood Sugar?

Supplements

The fact of the matter is there are so many supplements out there. So you need to know which are beneficial for controlling blood sugar. I’ll discuss the top nutritional supplements for diabetes here.

First off, let’s remember that you should consult with your physician before taking any supplement for any reason. It pays to be safe. Let the doctor know what you plan on taking. It’s extremely important.

They will advise you just to make sure that there are no conflicts with any medication that you are currently on. I’m just going to put things into simple terms that are understandable and let you decide. Deal? Ok then…

Supplements for Blood Sugar Control – Pick & Choose 

Chromium

It is necessary for proper metabolism. In addition chromium is a big contributor to level blood sugar levels.

Magnesium

Magnesium is responsible for numerous chemical reactions in your body which is why it supports blood sugar levels too. It accomplishes this by increasing insulin sensitivity and therefore supporting glucose in a healthy state as well. I take magnesium at night to get better sleep too.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been shown to slow the absorption of carbohydrates and digestion and increasing insulin sensitivity. It is a very powerful antioxidant. I take cinnamon every morning without fail.

Fenugreek

Again like magnesium, the seeds of the fenugreek plant aid in slowing of digestion and carbohydrate absorption and help stimulate insulin.

Ginseng

It’s not only good for blood sugar, it has other health benefits as well.

Silymarin

This extract of milk thistle that has antioxidants is another supplement that can aid in lowering blood sugar and can even help with losing weight.

Coconut Oil

This not only is an excellent source for many health issues, but can be a factor in reducing insulin resistance as well.

Turmeric

Turmeric can help increase the effects of your diabetes medication. You must be careful with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). I take turmeric every morning because it has many health benefits too such as being an anti inflammatory and lowering your risk of heart disease.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Your body’s tissues and organs need to be protected from free radicals and this will not only do that with its antioxidants, it aids in converting glucose into energy for your cells. Again, alpha lipoic acid helps to increase the insulin sensitivity.

Sunshine

Vitamin D

This one is extremely important for you! I take 1000 IU of vitamin D3 everyday. This vitamin is probably the most important vitamin for your health because 75 % of U.S. people are deficient in vitamin D, which is nicknamed the sunshine vitamin because we get vitamin D from the sun.

This is one reason for everything from heart disease to cancer and diabetes, according to recent studies. Most people don’t get their vitamin D levels checked and I can tell you that other than taking vitamin B-12? This is the one and ONLY other vitamin that I take because it IS that important.

These supplements can all help your blood pressure.  This is important especially when you have diabetes. A few other natural supplements to regulate your blood sugars are vitamin B-6 and B-3.  Add to that alpha-lipid acid (mentioned above), which is an antioxidant made by the body.  It helps make energy and reduces nerve damage caused by diabetes. This can be a huge benefit for diabetes and neuropathy.

Bitter Gourd also helps in the quest of regulating blood sugars.  The Chinese have used it for centuries. And Chromium Polynicotinate is an organic mineral that’s essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and fat. It also restores blood glucose balance.

The next step is to choose which supplements I want to try and discuss it with my physician. THAT is what is important! Now, just because my physician may say it’s ok to try, doesn’t mean that I don’t follow instructions. I read the labels. I don’t want interactions with my diabetes medication. Also, I don’t have to take a zillion supplements, I exercise and I sleep well. I want to have open my eyes to visions
