The Problem With Diabetes.

Diabetes is a growing problem all around the world. In America alone, it is estimated that nearly 30 million people have this condition which is caused by the pancreas either not producing insulin at all (type 1 diabetes) or not producing enough of it to keep up with the body’s demands (type 2 diabetes). Either way, this disease can lead to serious problems such as kidney failure. Unfortunately, many of the medications that mainstream medicine is now using can have serious side effects and do not always seem effective at preventing complications from this disease. Fortunately, there are more natural options to choose from to accomplish this.

1. Nigella Sativa

Also known as black seed, has been valued for its medicinal properties for around 2,000 years. It has been shown that some of the active compounds in black seed have an anti-diabetic effect. Use the oil made from the seeds and use it in water or a juice daily to help modulate the effects of diabetes.

2. Cinnamon

Perhaps one of the best-known (and widely-researched) treatments for diabetes. Research has found that many of the bioactive ingredients in this popular spice are able to mimic the action of insulin making it easier for glucose to travel from the bloodstream to the cells (where they are needed for energy). This, in turn, prevents high blood sugar and all the problems that can go with it.

3. Grape Seed Extract

The liver (like the pancreas) plays a big role in regulating blood sugar levels and keeping them in a range that is safe for the body. Grape seed extract can help because it is able to protect and rejuvenate liver tissue and support healthy liver function. This is a very important factor to consider for diabetics.

4. Bitter Melon

Bitter melon is a popular Indian remedy for diabetes and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for this and many other conditions. It is believed that compounds in bitter melon mimic the action of insulin in the body and can help with natural blood sugar regulation and control.
