Reducing Blood Sugar using Natural Herbs

February 18, 2012

We have seen on this website how Hyperglycemia (Too much glucose in the blood) is a chronic condition associated with diabetes.

There is plenty of evidence that diabetes is an issue for individuals,  authorities and healthcare professionals around the world.

Diabetes brings with it other related conditions like cardiovascular disease amongst other  complications.

Physical exercise, a healthy life style and diet are all important in managing the above chronic conditions.

Sugar reducing natural herbs like Emblica officinalis (gooseberry), green tea, and cinnamon were reviewed in a paper by Deng.  Composite supplements containing Emblica officinalis (Amla, Amlaki) showed the most consistency in lowering fasting blood sugar (FBS) or glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels in diabetic patients.

The hypoglycemic effects of cinnamon  was also demonstrated to be effective in most of the trials.
