supplements for diabetes and high blood pressure

Recommended Posts

hi, i have used gymnemma and karela.  gymnemma lowers the A1c, so it takes longer to see the effects.  Karela shows quicker results.

 

there are a few other supplements that can work as well.  they work for some and not for others so you never know until you try.

I take magnesium malate, which has other benefits, but helps overnight blood sugar.

 

Chromium and zinc did not do anything for me.

 

for blood pressure, Hibiscus sabdariffa, the red tea is almost magic, works for a great many people, but you need sweetner in it because it is bitter.

I've been drinking hibiscus tea made with the loose leaves, not in tea bags, I drink it plain, no sweetener.  It is a bit tart but I like it.  Dunno if it's doing me any good yet.

Potassium would be a thought to look into as this counteracts Salt!! Perhaps too much salt??

careful adding potassium if you don't know your potassium levels, it could play havoc with your heart.
