What Is In The New SugarMD Diabetic Supplement?
Today I am talking about something huge! It is about diabetic herbs. I know you guys have heard “some stuff” from “people”, but you are probably all lost. Some of you have tried our supplement SugarMD advanced glucose support, which is now totally renewed and strengthened, and you may have strong or mixed feelings about supplements. However, this time, this information will help you understand what natural herbs can and cannot do for your diabetes, as well as why every supplement does not work as they claim.
You may have been a victim of a Facebook or Google ad that claimed that this supplement was going to cure your diabetes or make your blood sugar totally normal. Today I will tell you exactly what may happen when you take the herbs, which will have a variable effect on every individual, just like any other medicine. Remember that herbs can be very effective on some people, but not on others. So choosing the right supplement with the right ingredients and high quality.
Today I will talk about bitter melon, fenugreek, amla, gymnema, turmeric, and jambolan. I actually chose these herbs for our newest diabetic support formula. I have a confession to make, and I will be vulnerable for a moment. I have always wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I have tried to come up with supplements twice, and we did ok, but we did not do great. They worked for some people, but not for all. Some people said it did not work for them, and that broke my heart. I do not want you to buy something to regret later. But we did not give up. We finally came up with a strong formula with minimal side effects that will help your blood sugar holistically and naturally. I realized that it’s not just the type of herb that matters, but also where you get it and how you process it. Just like a soup, for example, no matter where you go, that one restaurant or that one person, which is typically your mother, does it just right, but nobody else can match it. That is called proprietary. We finally found the secret sauce to making the best diabetic supplement and today I am proud to talk about the ingredients in it.
Bitter Melon- Main Diabetic Supplement in Advanced Glucose Support
Bitter melon contains several chemicals that appear to act like insulin and aid in blood sugar regulation.
According to many studies, it does this by increasing the amount of glucose that enters the cells and then assisting your body in processing and storing it in the liver, muscles, and fat by storing glucose in the form of glycogen. Bitter melon also prevents your body from converting protein and fat into glucose and releasing it into the bloodstream.
So you might be thinking that it’s like being on insulin but not taking it. Yep, bitter gourd has a compound that functions just like insulin. In fact, it reduces the blood glucose levels in both type I and type II diabetes. If you are on insulin most of the time, you will have to lower the dose of insulin when you take bitter melon. Again, I do not recommend buying and using bitter melon alone from sources you do not know and without knowing what you are doing. We put just the right amount of it in our supplement, but you will still need to carefully monitor your blood sugar once you start, and if your blood sugar is below 100 mg/dl or 5.5 mmol/L in the morning, lower your insulin by at least 10 percent. Some of my patients stopped taking insulin by gradually lowering their insulin. If you are unsure what to do with your insulin, ask your doctor how much to lower your insulin because your blood sugar is lower now.
What other benefits? Bitter melon is also high in antioxidants and vitamins A and C, both of which are beneficial to the skin. It fights acne and skin blemishes while also slowing down the aging process. It can be used to treat a variety of skin infections, including ringworm, psoriasis, and itching.
Fenugreek, A Mediterranean and Indian Delicacy.
Fenugreek seeds are used in many Indian kitchens. It has been used a lot as an herbal supplement to treat diabetes. Multiple reasons have been suggested for its effectiveness in people with diabetes. Soluble fibers in fenugreek, like glucomannan fiber, slow the absorption of sugars in the intestine. Alkaloids like fenugrecin and trigonelline have been shown to have antidiabetic activity, and amino acids like 4-hydroxyisoleucine (4-OH Ile) help the pancreas release insulin.
Amla, A Unique Diabetic Supplement
Amla also has chromium, which may make your body more sensitive to insulin, which helps keep your blood sugar levels in a healthy range. Amla also contains a high concentration of antioxidants, which are extremely beneficial to our bodies by quenching free radicals in the blood. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can harm cells. When atoms or molecules in our bodies gain or lose electrons, free radicals form. Their formation is normal, but if not stopped, they can harm our organs and their ability to perform various functions. Only antioxidants can safely interact with free radicals by donating the missing electron, but doing so causes them to become free radicals themselves. Because our bodies cannot produce antioxidants on their own, it is critical that we consume plenty of antioxidants through our diet. As a result, amla is a must-have fruit for diabetics to ensure that their blood sugar levels are under control and that they can live a better life!
In addition to that, there is a bonus benefit of amla here for you: Scientists at the University of Maryland Medical Center say that amla can also be used as a traditional remedy to avoid pancreatitis. Why is pancreatitis an issue? It is fairly common among diabetics and your risk is even slightly higher if you are on medications such as Ozempic, Trulicity, Januvia, etc. So, Amla can help prevent this potentially devastating complication.
Gymnema, King of Diabetic Herbs
It has been used as a supplement in conjunction with other diabetes treatments to help lower blood sugar levels. It’s also known as “gurmar,” which means “sugar destroyer” in Hindi. Gymnema may aid in the suppression of sugar cravings and the reduction of high blood sugar levels. The herb may also aid in the treatment of diabetes by stimulating insulin secretion and the regeneration of pancreatic islet cells, which are the cells that make insulin when needed.
Turmeric/Curcumin- A Great Diabetic Supplement
Curcumin has been shown in a number of animal and human studies to have a favorable effect on high blood sugar levels through enhancing insulin sensitivity. People with prediabetes who took curcumin as a diabetic supplement for nine months had a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who took a placebo. According to the study’s authors, curcumin appeared to boost the activity of the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin.
Jambolan or Jamun, which are the same thing or synonyms, is a popular folk remedy for diabetes.
It is even used orally to treat gas (flatulence), stomach swelling (inflammation) (gastritis), constipation, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal conditions. So, if you are already struggling with these problems, using jambolan, which is present in the new formula of sugarmd glucose support, may help you in both ways.
Don’t take my word for it, but some people even use jambolan as an aphrodisiac to stimulate sexual desire. I am not sure if that is a strong aphrodisiac, but if I was diabetic, I would not have had any problem with it.
Jambolan as a diabetic supplement aids in the slowing of the starch-to-sugar conversion process. As a result, the chances of a sudden spike in blood sugar levels when the starch in your food is metabolized are reduced.
People with type 2 diabetes have low insulin levels, right? Jambolan seeds increase insulin availability by either increasing secretion or preventing it from degrading quickly.
So that is it. I gave you the benefits of all the herbs we have in our diabetic supplement. We pretty much collected the finest and purest ayurvedic herbs. I’d like you to give it a shot and let us know what you think of it and how it affected you in the comments section below. For those who want to just try it, it is risk-free. Unless you purchase 3 or 6 bottles at a time, which happens a lot, we will refund your money if you are not happy with the supplement for one or another reason.
