Every time a condition or disease occurs that affects millions of people, you will find that nutrients or nutritional deficiencies are the cause of the disease. Following are the claims that certain CeraCare supplements or herbs "solve" the problem. And when it comes to type 2 diabetes, there are many claims that herbs are able to lower blood sugar.

How about reading the research?

With the information explosion, the number of articles about the effects of herbs and CeraCare supplements in the body, how they work, doses and toxicity has tripled. For excellent research on herbs, see Medical Research at Pub Med. To access this resource, simply type "Pub Med" into your Google browser and you will easily find the NIH site. Once there, you just need to enter the plant or supplement, you want information about and hundreds of articles will be displayed about that plant or supplement.

But don't always take your word for the gospel ... researchers often had no official training in the use of herbs.

This part is interesting: a lot of studies on antidiabetic plants ... those that lower blood sugar have shown that more than 70 percent of people in these studies have benefited from the blood lowering properties of these plants. There were also very few side effects. However, the researchers decided that there was not enough data to classify the plant as safe. However, if a drug is 33% successful, the medical profession will decide that it is a safe drug!

Herbal remedies have existed since around 1550 BC. BC, with at least four hundred different plants "prescribed" to help with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This was before Western medicine began to develop the current drugs that are now recognized as "Traditional Western Medicine".

Different herbs are used in different crops and often a combination of certain plants gives better results. This is one of the reasons why there is unlikely to be the definitive guide to the use of all plants.

Here are some of the most popular plants that lower blood sugar:

Stevia: Who would have thought that a medicinal plant called stevia would lower your blood sugar, even though its leaves are 300 times sweeter than sugar? There is only one precaution with stevia and that is; it is a one-way plant. This means that it will lower your blood sugar, never restore your low blood sugar to normal blood sugar levels. So, if an extract is made too strong by concentration, stevia can lower your blood sugar too much and too fast.

Gymnema sylvestris: a study showed that fasting blood glucose levels and HbA1c levels are low. There has been an increase in the body's own insulin production by Gymnema... apparently made by the beta cells of the pancreas. This plant is taken with a meal or an hour after a meal, when the blood sugar level is highest.

Bitter melon: Bitter melon contains medicinal ingredients similar to animal insulin. However, the plant is used ... juice, fruit or dry powder ... all of which have been shown to help lower blood sugar and are used in ceracare advanced blood sugar support formula.
