Natural remedies are the best. They’re cheap, easy, and delicious. They are also usually good for you.
So a whole list of 10 natural remedies that can help you get your blood glucose under control seems like a no brainer.
#1 Eat Whole Foods
Fruits and vegetables, I tell ya. They are packed with nutrients that can combat all of the awful side effects of diabetes while also supporting your body in regulating blood sugar. Plus, it will likely help you lose weight, which will also get your blood sugar under control.
#2 Go For a Walk
A 30-minute walk after dinner every evening will boost your glucose metabolism pretty easily. The moderate exercise signals your body to digest food more efficiently, down to the glucose swirling around in your blood. Plus, just like a healthy diet, it will help you lose weight too!
#3 Drink More Water (and less of the other stuff)
Sugary drinks are an obvious no-no, but so are diet drinks. The sugar alternatives do major damage to your brain and actually lead to weight gain instead of weight loss. Stick to water and natural tea, if you can.
#4 Add Cinnamon to Your Diet
Cinnamon has been shown over and over again to lower blood glucose when consumed regularly. Sprinkle it on your oatmeal, make cinnamon tea, or buy cinnamon supplements. However you get it into your diet, it will help.
#5 Eat More Fiber
Fiber is great for digestion because it helps pull everything through your intestines and out of your body. In this way, it makes it harder for glucose to enter your bloodstream so quickly. By slowing down this process, blood glucose is less likely to spike after eating.
#6 Eat More Turmeric
Turmeric is a miracle root that seems like it can prevent or cure virtually any disease, diabetes included. Turmeric increases insulin sensitivity, which makes glucose metabolism go a whole lot smoother. Check out this delicious turmeric smoothie I wrote about here.
#7 Make a Moringa Green Smoothie
Moringa research has shown diabetic markers to significantly reduce when moringa is consumed regularly. Get some moringa powder and add a scoop to your morning green smoothies to get your diabetes and blood sugar under control.
#8 Make a Raw Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir
Just by incorporating raw apple cider vinegar into your daily routine, you can seriously slow down the absorption of glucose into your bloodstream after eating. Try this delicious morning elixir I posted about, earlier.
#9 Eat Raw Cacao
Raw cacao is packed with magnesium and chromium, which have been shown to lower blood glucose. Sprinkle a bit over your oatmeal or blend with frozen bananas for a delicious (and healthy) treat.
#10 Eat More Nuts
Natural fats are so good at protecting your brain and heart that you should try to work them into your diet no matter what your blood glucose is. Nuts are also full of magnesium and chromium (like cacao), which will further support your quest in regulating blood sugar.
Incorporate these things into your daily habits and watch your blood sugar level out in no time!
