Sure you remember that carrots are good for your eyes but that's only because you've never seen a rabbit with glasses.  What about conditions that aren't so visable?  What should a person suffering from blood sugar disorders be getting the most of everyday?  Well here they are - the top five supplements to help control blood sugar:

  • Chromium (200 – 1,000 mcg per day) – Chromium is a trace mineral that enhances the action of insulin and may help boost fat, protein, and carbohydrate metabolism. May also help normalize blood sugar.
  • Cinnamon (500 mg per day) – May enhance insulin signaling pathways. Also may help your liver and other organs effectively metabolize blood sugar and help your muscles utilize sugar in the best possible way.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (600 mg per day) – Strong antioxidant that helps protect nerves and organs from damage by high blood sugar. May also help muscle cells up take blood sugar. One four week study on people using ALA improved their insulin sensitivity by 27 percent.
  • Gymnema Sylvestre (400-600 mg per day) – The name gymnema sylvestre means “sugar destroyer” in Hindi. Research shows that gymnema sylvestre can block sugar binding sites and can improve insulin resistance.  It may also help boost the activity of enzymes that help cells use glucose.
  • Bitter Melon – May help cells use glucose more effectively and block sugar absorption in the intestines. One study showed bitter melon juice improving glucose tolerance by 73 percent.
