Research shows the natural compound resveratrol can help lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, according to the American Holistic Health Association. This compound is found in red wine, nuts and grapes. There is evidence to show that people taking resveratrol supplements were able to lower their blood glucose levels and insulin resistance. They also had lower blood pressure.

2. Leafy Greens
The American Holistic Health Association promotes eating green leafy vegetables as a good natural way to help prevent diabetes among other health problems. The chlorophyll in the raw vegetables is believed to be one of the important natural agents in helping keep the body healthy.
