Nutrients That Control Blood Sugar

Monday, 23 August 2010 09:26 AM

Question: Can you recap how to control blood sugar levels?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Many flavonoids lower blood sugar and improve diabetes (reduce insulin resistance). These include hesperidin, quercetin, ellagic acid, ferulic acid, cinnamon extract, curcumin, luteolin, and apigenin. Many of these are available as extracts.

R-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that also dramatically lowers elevated blood sugar and protects against many of the harmful effects of diabetes. Most diabetics are significantly magnesium deficient and should take extra magnesium.
