Diabetics Can Count On Chromium
Chromium, an essential dietary mineral, plays a central role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbs, fats, and proteins for energy. Because of this insulin-enhancing role, chromium can be especially helpful in controlling, and sometimes reversing, some of the symptoms of prediabetes and type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. (Chromium, Type 2 Diabetes, Syndrome X)

Chromium
Excessive blood sugar promotes diabetes and all the destruction that goes with it. Studies show that if you have high blood sugar, chromium supplements will bring it down. Chromium increases the power of insulin to process sugar, so you need less insulin to do the job, and blood levels drop. (Chromium, High Blood Sugar, Diabetic Nutrition)

Chromium
In addition to helping to create normal blood sugar levels and regulating your cholesterol - without the side effects of diabetes medication - chromium may also improve muscle tone and burn fat, according to studies published in Sports Medicine.

Managing Hypoglycemia - Helpful Supplements (Part II)
This article lists many supplements that are suggested as useful for hypoglycemia in the literature. Outlines the importance of the B vitamins in  metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc are discussed.  (Low blood sugar)

Gymnema Sylvestre, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon Extract, Vanadium & Chromium
If you are trying to get your carbohydrate-craving and weight-storing chemistry under control, gymnema may be of benefit. Bitter melon can help by improving blood sugar balance and reducing the amount of sugars in the blood. A compound in cinnamon bark has been shown to increase glucose metabolism. Research on vanadium indicates that it may produce insulin-like activities in the body, making it of potential value for those with diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome. Chromium is thought to stimulate fat metabolism and to have a lowering effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product)

Weighty Research On Diet Supplements
Researchers in this study that covered a 10-year period found that obese or overweight consumers who took four supplements experienced less weight gain than those who did not use the supplements. Chromium seemed to most help weight control. It helps regulate blood-sugar levels, which keeps appetite in check. (Chromium, Diabetes Nutrition, Weight Loss)

Drive Diabetes into Retreat with Natural Remedies
Decades of research have shown the validity of minerals and herbs in lessening and even reversing the symptoms of diabetes. (Type I and Type II) Chromium, Vanadium, Gymnema sylvestre, Cinnamon and Fenugreek are discussed in this article on diabetic nutrition news. (Diabetic products)

The Natural Solution For Lowering Your Blood Sugar
Some of the most promising alternative treatments for high blood sugar come from nature's pharmacy, which isn't surprising.  Read more about these all natural alternatives, including Gymnema sylvestre, Fenugreek, Bitter melon, Chromium and Vanadium. (Diabetic Product, Herb for Diabetes and Diabetes Nutrition)

Diabetes Health Tricks
No magic bullet can stop our epidemic of type 2 diabetes, but certain supplements may help cut risk and alleviate symptoms. (Alpha-lipoic Acid, Neuropathy, High Triglycerides, Insulin)

A Growing Epidemic: Taking Aim at Managing Blood Sugar
The loss of insulin sensitivity can be decreased with the right nutrients. Numerous vitamins, minerals, herb and antioxidants have been studied for their efficacy at promoting healthy blood sugar and protecting cells from the damage of elevated blood sugars with favorable results. (Chromium, Fenugreek, Gymnema sylvestre, Vanadyl)

Diabetes - The Inflammation Syndrome Connection
Many nutritional supplements can lessen the inflammation in diabetes, but it is essential that the underlying diet be corrected. That said, a key objective of supplementation should be to lower glucose levels and improve insulin function, which should in turn reduce inflammation. Helpful supplements include chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and the omega-3 fatty acids. (Diabetes Nutrition, Inflammation, Arthritis, Heart Disease)

Fatigue: Why Am I So Tired?
If you have diabetes, your pancreas either stops making insulin or doesn't use it efficiently. With insulin resistance, your body can't absorb glucose properly, which means you won't have any energy. In addition to feeling tired, signs of diabetes include being very thirsty and hungry, having to urinate frequently, and losing weight. How can you get your energy back?

Mineral Deficiencies And Food Cravings
Clinicians note that deficiencies in certain minerals may trigger carbohydrate/sugar cravings. (Sugar Cravings, Diabetes Nutrition)

Conquer Your Carb Cravings - 14 Ways to Beat Temptation
Chances are, no matter how strong a dieter's resolve, sooner or later a craving will rear its ugly head. But even the strongest urge for a forbidden food doesn't warrant abandoning your low-carb lifestyle. "You should diet as if your life depended on it," says Fred Pescatore, M.D., author of The Hamptons Diet. "If you make it as important as anything else in your life, then you can't fail." Read more as low-carb experts and successful dieters share their tips to fend off cravings and stay on the path to weight loss and better health. (Diabetic Diet and Low Carbohydrate Diet)

Cinnamon
Cinnamon appears to fight inflammation and help insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar. (Type 2 Diabetes and Diabetes Research)
