Type 2 diabetes: Add this supplement to your diet to lower blood sugar

Type 2 diabetes is a condition whereby your pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. Blood sugar is the main sugar found in blood and is an important source of energy and nutrients for the body. The pancreas usually aids the absorption and storage of blood sugar so when the pancreas is out of action, blood sugar levels rise uncontrollably.

Over time, high blood sugar can inflict damage on your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels, so it is imperative to keep it in check.

To compensate for a faulty pancreas, you must modify aspects of your lifestyle to regulate blood sugar.

Diet forms an essential component of blood sugar management.

Research investigating the impact of certain dietary decisions on insulin resistance and blood sugar levels shows that certain items can improve these impaired mechanisms.

Additionally, in a large study of over 62,000 adults, the likelihood of having diabetes was 27 percent lower in those who took dietary supplements containing chromium.

According to an Associate Professor of Medicine at University of Vermont, “prior human studies have suggested that chromium picolinate decreases insulin levels and improves blood sugar metabolism in both obese people and people with type 2 diabetes”.

Echoing this positive assessment, Richard Anderson, of the US Department of Agriculture, said: “Essentially all the studies using chromium picolinate supplementation for impaired glucose intolerance and diabetes showed a positive effect.”
