While there is presently no cure for diabetes, the Natures Healthbox range of blood sugar control products may help you to regulate your blood sugar levels - we recommend that diabetics consult their GP before taking them though.
Blood sugar control us part of diabetes management. The blood sugar level is the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood, which is noticeably low in the mornings but siginifcantly higher after meals. Ideally, you could monitor blood sugars four times per day to follow how well your sugars are controlled. For most people blood sugar levels remain within their tight but optimal limits but in those with diabetes these levels move beyond these limits until a diabetic patient is treated.
If a persons blood sugar is too low they will not have enough energy to carry out their daily activities. However, too much sugar can operate like a slow-acting toxin upon the cells of the pancreas, which can destroy their capacity to produce insulin.
High levels of blood sugar can also cause changes that lead to atherosclerosis, strokes, erectile dysfunction, poor circulation or a weakened Immune System.
Cinnamon has the ability to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin activity, while Chromium is used for improving blood sugar control in people with pre-diabetes (type 1 & 2). Due to its hypoglycaemic activity, the herb Fenugreek can also be used to help control diabetes, lower blood sugar levels, and improve glucose tolerance.
