Herbal Treatment Shows Promise for Type II Diabetes
“Diabetes is a growing health problem. Giving antioxidants is recognized as one way of helping people with diabetes to control their blood sugar levels. The herbal medicine extracted from seeds of the Milk Thistle, Silybum marianum (silymarin) is known to have antioxidant properties and research published this week in Phytotherapy Research shows that this extract can help people significantly lower the amount of sugar bound to hemoglobin in blood, as well as reducing fasting blood sugar levels.”

Other natural supplements and minerals that beneficially impact blood sugar are: Chromium, Vanadium, Bitter Melon, Gymnema Sylvestre, Cinnamon, Fenugreek, Blueberry, Bilberry, and Ginseng… among others! The important thing is a healthy lifestyle, eating a reasonable diet, and watching your weight!
