    Managing Your Blood Sugar Levels

    Healthy blood sugar promotes health balance … the energy and vitality to get moving … and improve over all health.

    Diabetes is a disease in which your body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert natural sugar, starches and other foods into energy needed for your daily living. The cause of diabetes continues to be unclear, although both genetics and environment factors appear to play key causes.

    About 20.8 million children and adults in the United States have suffered from this disease. While an estimated 14.6 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes, and 6.2 million people are unaware that they have this disease.

    We are happy to inform you that … more and more patients suffering from Diabetes (Blood Sugar levels) are finding solutions through our Blood Sugar Program … are the natural way to help promote and maintain healthy Blood Sugar levels.

    INTRODUCTIONBack to top

    It’s a national epidemic; obesity, diabetes and what has been termed the metabolic syndrome. Let’s take a little time to define and discuss what that means for people diagnosed with diabetes type I and type II.One of the features that are common to both types of diabetes is insulin resistance. The message from the latest research in this area is clear; you can’t treat diabetes without addressing insulin resistance.

    Although the precise molecular chemistry is a bit uncertain, what is known is that affected people exhibit a strange paradox of physiology. Their blood sugars are elevated but yet, they have more insulin circulating than normal people. How is that possible? The answer is that for some reason the cells of the body have become resistant to insulin, as if something switched off the normal utilization of insulin. The pancreas does it’s best to keep pumping out insulin in excess quantities to meet increased demands. Mounting and persistent elevations of free fatty acids and glucose are toxic to the beta cells of the pancreas. In time, beta cell death and reduced mass of beta cells takes its toll. Eventually, the pancreas fails completely, burns out, and the person graduates to being an insulin dependant diabetic (Type I) taking at least two injections a day of exogenous insulin.

    Recent research in this area has revealed a link between a substance excreted by fat cells called monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and insulin resistance. Other research has implicated inter-leukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Interestingly, both of these are known to be over expressed in adipose tissue. diabecareRegardless of the exact biochemistry, the inescapable conclusion is that excess body fat causes insulin resistance in susceptible persons. In the past, fat depots have been thought of largely silent storage areas. A more contemporary view is that this area, especially weight around the middle, is actually a metabolically active hormone producing organ. The conclusion is obvious; the less fat, the less chance for elevated insulin levels and insulin resistance.

    The strange situation has a further twist. The elevated circulating level of insulin by itself has an appetite stimulating effect on the brain. Ever wonder why so many diabetics are overweight? One answer is that the high insulin level drives their appetite. In effect, they can’t win This is a very important issue to address; what can we do to lower insulin resistance? We have mentioned some of the consequences of elevated insulin levels but a quick reminder may be in order to underscore the significance. Elevated insulin levels have been shown to independently predict the occurrence of congestive heart failure. Elevated insulin levels are associated with the development of colon cancer and also of breast and pancreatic cancer. Insulin by itself has been shown to cause athero-sclerosis of the blood vessels. In an important lab experiment, insulin was dripped in continuously into the femoral artery of a dog. Over a period of months the vessel on the experimental side developed severe atherosclerosis that the other side did not. The implications for humans couldn’t be clearer.

    INDIVIDUAL INGREDIENT FUNCTIONSBack to top

    vitamin_CVitamin C may be helpful for people with diabetes in a number of ways. First, some studies suggest that people with diabetes have high levels of free radicals (the damaging metabolic by-products, mentioned earlier, associated with many chronic illnesses) and low levels of antioxidants, including vitamin C. This imbalance may contribute to the fact that those with diabetes are at greater risk for developing conditions such as high cholesterol and atherosclerosis. Secondly, insulin (which is low in type 1 diabetics and does not function properly in type 2 diabetics) helps cells in the body take up the vitamin C that they need to function properly.At the same time, lots of circulating blood sugar (glucose), as is often the present in diabetics, prevents the cells from getting the vitamin C that they need, even ifeating lots of fruits or vegetables. For this reason, taking extra vitamin C in the form of supplements may be helpful in those with diabetes. Elevated insulin levels are very dangerous.

    VITAMIN E

    vitaminE

    People with diabetes tend to have low levels of antioxidants. This may explain, in part, their increased risk for conditions such as cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E supplements and other antioxidants may help reduce the risk of heart disease and other complications in people with diabetes. In particular, antioxidants have been shown to help control blood sugar levels, to ower cholesterol levels in those with type 2 diabetes, and to protect against the complications of retinopathy (eye damage) and nephropathy (kidney damage) in those with type 1 diabetes. Vitamin E may also play a role in the prevention of diabetes. In one study, 944 men who did not have diabetes were followed for 4 years. Low levels of vitamin E were associated with an increased risk of becoming diabetic in that time course.

    MAGNESIUM OXIDE

    magnesiumMany studies have shown that both mean plasma and intracellular free magnesium levels are lower in patients with diabetes than in the general population. This magnesium deficiency, which may take the form of a chronic latent magnesium deficit rather than clinical hypomagnesaemia, may have clinical importance because the magnesium ion is a crucial cofactor for many enzymatic reactions involved in metabolic processes. Many studies show that mean plasma levels are lower in patients with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes compared with non-diabetic control subjects.

    In a study from Taiwan, the risk of dying from diabetes was inversely proportional to the level of magnesium in the drinking water. This was all the more striking because the greatest increase in chronic disease mortality in Taiwan since 1970 has been due to diabetes. Because the dysregulation caused by a chronic latent magnesium deficit is probably more important than clinical hypomagnesaemia in the pathogenesis of diabetes, this may suggest that dietary magnesium (including that in a water supply) is protective against diabetes and its dreaded complications.

    The concentration of intracellular free magnesium in erythrocytes is a more sensitive marker in people with diabetes and insulin resistance than are plasma levels of magnesium. Decreased levels of free intracellular magnesium in erythrocytes have been reported in the majority of patients with type 2 diabetes. Resnick and Associates suggest that extra cellular and intracellular magnesium deficiency is typical in chronic, stable, mild type 2 diabetes and may be a strong predisposing factor for the development of the excess cardiovascular morbidity associated with diabetes. These investigators showed that the levels of serum, ionized, magnesium and erythrocyte, intracellular free, magnesium were significantly lower in 22 untreated patients with type 2 diabetes and and mild hyperglycemia than they were in 30 healthy control subjects (P<.001) Serum total magnesium was not reduced.

    MAGNESIUM LOSS AND INSULIN RESISTANCE

    Among its many actions, insulin stimulates the transport of magnesium from the extra-cellular to the intracellular compartment. Using atomic absorption spectrophotometer and the euglycemic hyperinsu-linemic glucose clamp technique, Paolisso and associates showed that plasma magnesium levels declined and erythrocyte magnesium levels rose significantly (P<.05) in response to insulin in fasting healthy adults with no family history of diabetes. Insulin resistance, central to type 2 diabetes, is associated with reduced intracellular magnesium and can be mitigated with magnesium. It has been demonstrated that insulin resistance in skeletal muscle can be reduced by magnesium administration. Reduced magnesium levels in diabetes are caused by several factors (Figure 2). The link between magnesium deficiency and the development of diabetes is strengthened by the observation that several treatments for type 2 diabetes appear to increase magnesium levels. Metformin, for example, raises magnesium levels in the liver. Pioglitazone, a thiazolidinedione antidiabetic agent that increases insulin sensitivity, increases free magnesium concentration in adipocytes.

    CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS OF LOW MAGNESIUM LEVELS

    Reduced intake and reduced levels of magnesium may lead to increased atherosclerosis. In addition, lower serum magnesium levels have been associated with increased likelihood or progression of retinopathy in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Epidemiologic data suggest that populations with low magnesium intake are at increased risk for hypertension, stroke, and other manifestations of atherosclerotic disease. In the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study, for example, dietary magnesium intake was inversely correlated with ultrasonographically measured carotid artery wall thickness, which is a surrogate marker for atherosclerosis.

    ORAL MAGNESIUM: VALUE OF A HIGH INTAKE

    oral_magnesium

    There are potential benefits supporting the use of magnesium supplementation in persons who have diabetes or risk factors for diabetes (Table 3). Increased magnesium intake is associated with decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes in populations. In a prospective study of almost 85,000 women, the relative risk of diabetes for women in the highest quintile of magnesium consumption was 0.68 when compared with women in the lowest quintile. (Figure 2). Oral magnesium supplementation is contraindicated in patients with significant renal impairment. Higher dietary intake of magnesium was among the factors associated with a reduced risk of stroke in men with hypertension. In a survey of almost 45,000 men ages 40 to 75, the overall risk of stroke was significantly lower for men in the highest quintile of intake of potassium, magnesium, and cereal fiber, but not of calcium, compared with men in the lowest quintile of intake (Figure 2). A similar relationship was reported this year by Meyer and Colleagues, who observed that a diet rich in magnesium, grains, fruits, and vegetables reduced the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes in a group of almost 36,000 women. While no consistent effect of magnesium on blood pressure has been noted among persons with diabetes, a significant blood pressure reduction was noted in diabetic patients with hypertension after dietary sodium was replaced with potassium and magnesium.

    BIOTINBack to top

    biotin

    People with type 2 diabetes often have low levels of biotin. Biotin may be involved in the synthesis and release of insulin. Preliminary studies in both animals and people suggest that biotin may help improve blood sugar control in those with diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes. More research in this area would be helpful.

    ZINC OXIDE

    zinc_oxide

    Scientists at Notre Dame* and at the U. of Illinois have discovered that zinc has an insulin-like effect on the manifestation of diabetes. Insulin, they note, promotes the transport of glucose and amino acids (proteins) and decreases the breakdown of muscles while healthfully enhancing their buildup. “Failure to enhance glucose transport, ” they say, “into insulin-sensitive cells is a hallmark of diabetes [emphasis added]. They have found that zinc enhances this glucose movement.

    MANGANESE

    manganese

    Although results have been conflicting, some research suggests that people with diabetes have significantly lower levels of manganese in their bodies than people without diabetes. It is not clear however, whether this is a cause or effect of the condition. In other words, researchers have yet to determine whether diabetes causes levels of manganese to drop or if deficiencies in this trace element actually contribute to the development of the metabolic disorder. In addition, one study found that diabetics with higher blood levels of manganese were more protected from oxidation of LDL (”bad”) cholesterol than those with lower levels of manganese. (LDL oxidation contributes to the development of plaque in the arteries which can lead to heart attack and stroke.) Further studies are needed to determine whether supplementation with manganese helps prevent and/or treat diabetes and its associated complications.

    CHROMIUM – AMINO ACID CHELATE (PICOLINATE)

    chromium

    Chromium is an essential trace mineral that occurs naturally in small amounts in some foods, including brewer’s yeast, lean meat, cheese, pork kidney and whole grain bread and cereals. It is poorly absorbed by the human body but is known to play an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat and protein. Several reports have indicated that chromium picolinate is better absorbed by humans than other forms of the mineral. The review, co-authored by Philip Domenico from Nutrition 21 who produces chromium picolinate supplements, is a timely summary of the state-of-play for the mineral that could offer significant benefits to the growing number of diabetics. An estimated 39 million people are affected by diabetes in the US and EU 25.

    The total costs in the US alone are thought to be as much as $132 billion, with $92 billion being direct costs from medication, according to 2002 American Diabetes Association figures. C. Leigh Broadhurst and Domenico reviewed data from fifteen studies (14 focused in type-2 diabetes) with a total of 1,690 subjects, including 1,505 receiving chromium picolinate. Doses ranged from 200-1000 micrograms of chromium per day and supplementation periods ranged from one week to nine months.
    “The data indicate that chromium picolinate supplementation represents a uniquely efficacious modality for glycaemic control in subjects with diabetes,” wrote reviewers C. Leigh Broadhurst and Philip Domenico. “Indeed, 13 of 15 clinical studies reported significant improvement in at least one outcome of glycaemic control.”

    Broadhurst and Domenico report that six out of ten studies measuring fasting glucose levels showed a significant improvement of 15.3 per cent, and postprandial glucose levels of 18.9 per cent. Fasting insulin levels, measured in four studies, improved by 29.8 per cent, while postprandial insulin improved by 15 per cent from baseline as a result of chromium picolinate supplementation. The authors note that a recent meta-analysis of chromium supplementation with respect to diabetes did not report significant benefits, but this may due to the form of the mineral and that people with type-2 diabetes may need higher doses than normal people for a benefit to be observed.

    “The main messages are that all forms of chromium are not equivalent, and that higher doses of chromium picolinate are required for people with type 2 diabetes,” said Broadhurst in a statement. “Previous chromium reviews examined all types of chromium at widely varying doses. But separating out chromium picolinate, which yields highly consistent results in research studies, compared to other chromium supplements shows that at doses between 200–1000 mcg it is a superior nutritional adjunct to diabetes treatments.”

    The supplement has a “compelling safety profile”, said the researchers, and is an inexpensive and efficacious way of improving diabetes control and could be used in combination with existing medications, as well as reducing the requirement of these expensive medications.

    “Though the data supporting the benefits of supplemental chromium picolinate for subjects with diabetes are strong, future studies may require a more careful selection of subjects to pinpoint its usefulness,” they concluded.

    BANABA EXTRACT

    banaba_extract

    Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa), long used in the Philippines as diabetes herbal medicine, is now gaining momentum and widespread acceptance, even in the western medical circles. Medical research and clinical trials performed on this miraculous herb not only in the Philippines but in other countries as well have proven age-old Filipino wisdom correct! Banaba possesses the powerful compound corosolic acid that lends itself to the treatment of diabetes. A 15-day randomized control trial on banaba was done in 10 patients with type 2 diabetes and fasting glucose levels between 140 and 250 mg/dl. The results of the trial were published in a 2003 issue of the Journal of Pharmacological Sciences (93:69-73).

    Diabetes medications were stopped 45 days before the study. Three different doses of banaba—16 mg, 32 mg, or 48 mg—in either a soft-gel or hard-gel formulation were used. Five subjects in each group received the three different doses for 15 days, with a 10-day washout between doses. Basal glucose was determined by a fasting blood sample seven days before starting banaba. During the study, three samples were taken, and an average of the three readings was compared to the basal value. The 32- and 48-mg soft-gel formulations showed 11 percent and 30 percent decreases, respectively, from basal values after 15 days of treatment.

    GUGGUL

    guggul

    Guggul, also known as guggulipid, is a substance secreted by the mukul myrrh tree (Commiphora mukul) after it has been injured. It has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat obesity, osteoarthritis, and some skin conditions. Recently, research has suggested that guggul also may lower total cholesterol levels, especially triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. The method by which guggul lowers cholesterol is not totally understood, however, there have been many mechanisms proposed. These mechanisms include blocking cholesterol synthesis and increasing removal of LDL cholesterol. Some of the research performed on guggul suggests that it does modestly lower total cholesterol (between 10 to 27 percent),and LDL cholesterol.

    BITTER MELON EXTRACTBack to top

    bitter_melon_extract

    The blood lowering action of the fresh juice of the unripe Bitter Melon has been confirmed in scientific studies in animals and humans. At least three different groups of constituents in Bitter Melon have been reported to have hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) or other actions of potential benefit in diabetes mellitus. These include a mixture of steroidal saponins known as charantin, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids. It is still unclear which of these is most effective or if all three work together. Nonetheless, Bitter Melon preparations have been shown to significantly improve glucose tolerance without increasing blood insulin levels, and to improve fasting blood glucose levels.

    Rich in iron, bitter melon has twice the beta carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, twice the potassium of bananas, and contains vitamins C and B 1 to 3, phosphorus and good dietary fiber. It is believed to be good for the liver and has been proven by western scientists to contain insulin, act as an anti-tumor agent, and inhibit HIV-1 infection. At least 32 active constituents have been identified in bitter melon so far, including beta-sitosterol-d-glucoside, citrulline, GABA, lutein, lycopene and zeaxanthin. Nutritional analysis reveals that bitter melon is also rich in potassium, calcium, iron, beta-carotene, vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C. Even more effective than a conventional drug in lowering blood sugar! Recently, the Department of Health in the Philippines has recommended bitter melon as one of the best herbal medicines for diabetic management. And multiple clinical studies have clearly established the role of bitter melon in people with diabetes.

    Scientists have now identified three groups of constituents that are thought to be responsible for its ‘blood sugar lowering’ action. One of these, a compound called charantin, which is composed of mixed steroids, was found to be more effective than the oral hypoglycemic drug, tolbutamide, in reducing blood sugar. Another, an insulin-like polypeptide, called polypeptide P, appears to lower blood sugar in type I (insulin dependent) diabetics, while alkaloids present in the fruit have also been noted to have a blood sugar lowering effect. As yet, researchers are unclear as to which of these compounds is most effective or if it is the synergistic effect of all three. Further research is required to understand how these compounds actually work. Compounds known as oleanolic acid glycosides have been found to improve glucose tolerance in Type II (maturity onset) diabetics by preventing the absorption of sugar from the intestines. Bitter melon has also been reported to increase the number of beta cells (cells that secrete insulin) in the pancreas, thereby improving your body’s capability to produce insulin (insulin promotes the uptake of sugar from your blood by cells and tissues).

    LICORICE EXTRACT

    licorice_extract

    Also, to be safe, if you have high blood pressure or heart trouble, avoid large amounts of licorice. The overconsumption of candies containing licorice extract has caused some people to develop symptoms of edema, or swelling, and related problems. Large amounts of licorice should be avoided since the herb can deplete your body of potassium, causing an electrolyte imbalance. Advanced DiabeCare employs a small amount of licorice, 25 mg as a stomach soothing aid and to assist absorption of the other ingredients. If you have advanced kidney disease or have problems retaining potassium, licorice should be avoided. In all cases seek the advice of your regular healthcare provider.

    CINNAMON POWDER

    cinnamon_powder

    According to some studies, cinnamon may improve blood glucose and cholesterol levels in people with Type 2 diabetes. The results of a study from 2003 in Pakistan showed lower levels of fasting glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol after 40 days with levels continuing to drop for 20 days after that. The study was made up of 60 people with Type 2 diabetes who were divided into six groups of ten. Three groups received cinnamon in the form of capsules totaling 1, 3 or 6 grams of cinnamon a day. The other three groups received placebo capsules. The capsules were taken three times a day, after meals. All three levels of cinnamon showed results, leading researchers to believe that as little as 1 gram a day of cinnamon may benefit people who have Type 2 diabetes. There has been some debate in this country on whether “true” cinnamon was used for the study.

    According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are two types of cinnamon sold in the United States; cinnamomum zeylanicum or cinnamomum cassia (L.) blume. Most of the cinnamon sold in our grocery stores is cinnamomum cassia. The Pakistani study does list cinnamomum cassia as the cinnamon that was used. Richard A. Anderson, Ph.D., CNS, of the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center (BHNRC), is one of the original researchers in the Pakistan study. The BHNRC is under the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). From results of his continued study of the components of cinnamon and their effect on blood glucose and cholesterol, he states: “We have also shown that the active components of cinnamon are found in the water-soluble portion of cinnamon and are not present in cinnamon oil, which is largely fat-soluble.”

    Based on these studies, it seems that cinnamon may lower blood glucose, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in people with Type 2 diabetes. The fact that studies so far have involved a small amount of people and have not yet explored the long term benefits of cinnamon, would lead to the conclusion that there may not be enough evidence gathered yet, to support cinnamon as a major player against Type 2. But adding more cinnamon to already healthy lifestyle changes probably wouldn’t hurt either.

    GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE

    gynmena

    In 1990 a series of published studies on GSE lifted this herb from interesting to revolutionary. To begin with, it was shown that the administration of GSE to diabetic animals not only resulted in improved glucose homeostasis, this improvement was accompanied by a regeneration of beta cells in the pancreas. In the words of the authors, “This herbal therapy appears to bring about blood glucose homeostasis through increased serum insulin levels provided by repair/regeneration of the endocrine pancreas.” To our knowledge, this is the only compound that has shown the ability to lessen indicators of diabetes by directly repairing/regenerating the pancreas cells responsible for producing insulin. As abnormalities in beta cell number and/or function are directly related to both Type I (insulin dependent) and Type II diabetes mellitus, it appeared that GS and GSE was a major discovery in the battle against one of the most common disorders in the world.

    Also in 1990, this same research team published results on their treatment of both Type I and Type II diabetics with GSE over a period of more than 2 years. In the case of Type II diabetics, GSE resulted in significant reductions in blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, glycosylated plasma proteins, and conventional drug dosage. At the beginning of the study all participants were taking oral antidiabetic medication, and treatment with GSE resulted not only in a lowering of oral medication necessity, but almost 25% of the participants were able to discontinue conventional oral medication and maintain blood glucose homeostasis with GSE alone. Additionally, GSE significantly improved cholesterol, triglyceride, and free fatty acid levels that were elevated in the study participants. The fact that GSE lowered conventional medication requirements, increased serum insulin levels, and required months to obtain optimal effects, led the authors to speculate that, “These data suggest that the beta cells may be regenerated/repaired in Type 2 diabetic patients on GSE supplementation.” The control group used in this study not only didn’t improve during the study period, they actually worsened.

    An additional study in Type 1 diabetics showed equally impressive results.(7) Insulin requirements came down together with blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin and glycosylated plasma protein levels.Serum lipids returned to near normal levels with GSE therapy. This may help prevent cardiovascular disease, a common complication in diabetics. Most impressively, an increase in C-peptide levels was found in these participants. This is strong indication of a restoration of insulin production, presumably due to regeneration/repair of beta cells in the pancreas.

    A control group showed none of these improvements, and actually worsened over the study period. Importantly, none of the participants in either of these studies presented any adverse side effects, although many patients developed hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) and required a lowering of their dose of conventional oral medication or insulin. Thus, any diabetic that uses GSE must carefully monitor blood glucose levels and adjust their medication, in consultation with their physician, to maintain desired blood glucose levels. This is because improved insulin production and release during GSE supplementation may result in over-medication, and thus low blood glucose levels, unless the dosage of conventional oral medication or insulin is lowered.

    Since most diabetics monitor their blood glucose levels on a daily basis, this shouldn’t present a problem. Because diabetes usually isn’t recognized until significant damage has occurred to the pancreas cells responsible for producing insulin, GSE may be of use to anyone concerned about preventing the development of diabetes.

    YARROW POWDER

    yarrow_powderYarrow Powder
    This herb has been used since antiquity to treat a variety of disorders. It is thought to have anti-oxidant properties and helps to promote vascular health. It has been a mainstay in the treatment of bleeding disorders and has been safely used in the naturopathic treatment of diabetes for many years.

    CAYENNE POWDERBack to top

    cayenne_powder

    The spice capsicum, the fruits of the genus Capsicum (Family Solanaceae), is a very popular food additive in many parts of the world, valued for the important sensory attributes of color, pungency, and aroma. A large number of varieties of cayenne pepper are widely cultivated and traded. The characteristic cartenoids of the bright red paprika and cayenne-type chilies, the high character impact aroma stimuli, the methoxy pyrazine of green bell capsicum, the esters of ripe tabasco and the highly potent pungency stimuli, and the capsaicinoids of African and other Asian varieties of chillies, have been of great interest to chemists and biochemists.

    Cayenne contains carotenoids and capsaicinoids. In patients suffering from Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas fails to produce sufficient levels of insulin, causing inflammation and death of insulin-producing islet cells in the pancreas.Experts have long believed that the condition was caused by the body’s immune system turning against itself, but the Toronto researchers, immunologist Dr. Hans Michael Dosch and pain expert Dr. Michael Salter, theorized that faulty pancreatic pain neurons could be to blame. Dosch had observed in previous research that islet cells in diabetics were surrounded by an “enormous” number of pain nerves that signaled the brain that the pancreatic tissue was damaged. To test their theory, Dosch and Salter injected capsaicin into mice that had Type 1 diabetes, to kill the animals’ pancreatic pain nerves. The researchers said they were stunned to discover that the injected mice’s islet cells began producing insulin normally almost immediately. “I couldn’t believe it,” Salter said. “Mice with diabetes suddenly didn’t have diabetes anymore.”

    JUNIPER BERRIES

    juniper_berries

    Test tube studies show that juniper berries can inhibit prostaglandin synthesis, which suggests that the traditional use for easing arthritis pain may have some scientific basis. In addition, they apparently inhibit platelet-activating factor (PAF), which would discourage blood clots. This is not a traditional use for juniper berries in herbal medicine. Juniper berry extract also has antioxidant activity. Animal studies indicate that juniper berries lower blood sugar in experimentally induced diabetes. It has not been tested for this effect in humans.

    BILBERRY

    bilberry

    Bilberry leaves have traditionally been used to control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. A couple of modern day reports of a few individuals with type 2 (adult onset) diabetes as well as animal studies suggest that this traditional use may have merit. Rigorous scientific studies are needed.

    ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

    Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is manufactured in the human body. Antioxidants are substances that work by attacking “free radicals,” waste products created when the body turns food into energy. There are also many sources of free radicals in the environment such as ultraviolet rays, radiation, and toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and pesticides. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. As a result a person becomes more susceptible to long term diseases such as diabetes and liver damage.

    Alpha-lipoic acid works together with other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. It is important for growth, helps to prevent cell damage, and helps the body rid itself of harmful substances. Several studies suggest that treatment with ALA may help reduce pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in people who have nerve damage (called peripheral neuropathy) caused by diabetes. Alpha-lipoic acid has been used for years for this purpose in Europe.

    Other studies have shown that alpha-lipoic acid speeds the removal of glucose (sugar) from the blood of people with diabetes and that this antioxidant may prevent kidney damage associated with diabetes in animals.

    Taurine is needed by the brain, heart, central nervous system and skeletal muscles. Recent research indicates taurine’s role as an important nerve and muscle interaction regulator. Clinical studies in humans have demonstrated beneficial effects in congestive heart failure, diabetes, and seizure disorders. Diabetics are known to have lower levels of taurine. Taurine improves the utilization of sugar and potentates the action of insulin. It is also used for its beneficial effects on eye and heart health.

    VANADYL SULFATE

    Vanadyl Sulfate is the most popular and common form of vanadium, an element in the body that is found in foods such as pepper, dill, radishes, eggs, vegetable oils, buckwheat, and oats. Debate has raged over whether or not it is an essential nutrient in certain plants and animals, but little is certain (Harland, Harden-Williams 1994). The physiological role of vanadium in humans is unknown, but it seems that the substance is needed for normal growth and development (Boden et al. 1996). Recently, a great deal of attention has been paid to vanadium because of its supposed insulin-mimicking activities.
    The precise mechanism by which vanadium mimics the effects of insulin is uncertain, but some researchers have made proposals.

    The most popular view has been that vanadium works as a cofactor. Specifically, it is thought to work by altering the concentration and effectiveness of several enzymes that are involved in the breakdown and distribution of glucose molecules and amino acids. The lack of research into the specific methodology and structure of vanadium has left much up to speculation. It is however clear that Vanadyl sulfate does play an important role in glucose metabolism.
