 Grape seed Extract

Grape seed has a proven track record in improving the conditions associated with diabetes,. Grape seed performed greatly in studies performed in Japan and various countries.
. Grape seed was successful in protecting the liver cells and setting up defense mechanisms against reactive oxygen species produced by hyperglycemic conditions.

Grape seed comes in capsules of 50-100mg. It is usually suggested to take 50mg per 50 lbs. of weight, not to exceed 300mg per day. Whole grape seeds are the best alternative, which need to be ground and placed in vegetarian capsules. Taking 3 capsules a day is enough. The time of day does not matter.
Oral grape seed extract is used in capsules or tablets usually containing 50 mg or 100 mg. Insufficient scientific information is known, however, about how long-term use of grape seed extract might affect health or any disease.
Side-effects and cautions, other NCCAM advisories.
  • In general, grape seed extract is well tolerated when taken by mouth, although it is better tolerated when encapsulated, as its taste is bitter. It has been used safely for up to 8 weeks in clinical trials.
  • Side-effects most often include headache, a dry, itchy scalp, dizziness, or nausea
  • Interactions between grape seed extract and medicines or other supplements have not been carefully studied
Due to the possible action of proanthocyanidins on limiting platelet adhesion,[ grape seed extract may act as a blood-thinner, increasing clotting time.

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.

Best source of alpha-lipoic:Alpha-lipoic

Magnesium for Diabetes Control

Our bodies require magnesium for more than 300 metabolic functions. On of those is regulating blood sugar levels for diabetics. It also supports muscle and nerve function, blood pressure control and even enhances energy levels and may even have antidepressant effects.

Sources for magnesium include green vegetables, peas, beans, soybeans, almonds, cashews, peanut butter, yogurt and whole unrefined grains.

We get low magnesium levels from overactive stress hormones (probably applies to everyone nowadays), or excessive dietary calcium. Seniors are particularly susceptible because of digestive issues.. Other threat factors can come from prescribed drugs, diuretics, antibiotics and medications used to treat cancer
