Gurmar Premier Herb for Diabetes

 Gurmar (Gymnema Sylvestre)is an Indian herb.  the word "Gurmar" literally means "sugar destroyer". Gumar has been used for centuries to treat diabetes.

How it Works:
When consumed before a meal, gumar binds to taste receptors on the tongue snubbing out sweet perception.

 One study found that when 22 people with type 2 diabetes were given 400 mg of gumar for 18 - 20 months, along with their diabetes medication, they showed significant reduction in blood glucose.  Five participants were able to get off their diabetes drugs and maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Recommended Dose:

200 - 250 mg of standardized Gurmar extract twice daily.

May cause reaction in people allergic to milkweed.

Alpha-lipoic a great diabetes manager

Alpha -lipoic is an antioxidant that helps cells efficiently convert glucose into energy

It is believed to lower blood sugar levels by metabolizing glucose and ushering it to the muscles where it is needed for energy.

Alpha-lipoic is used as a prescription in Europe as a prescription remedy for diabetic neuropathy and numbness, pain or tingling sensation in feet or legs that occurs when high blood sugar levels damage nerve endings.

A 2006 study of 180 diabetic patients found that patients taking 600-1800 mg per day of alpha-lipoic acid saw significant reduction of diabetic neuropathy compared with those taking a placebo.

Recommended dose 300-1200 mg per day.

cautions: Can significantly lower blood sugar levels so take under a doctor's care.
