I recently spoke with a customer about natural options to help control her blood sugar. She had been told she had prediabetes and was understandably very concerned. Prediabetes is often considered a wake-up call, because it means if left unchanged, you are likely on the path to developing type-2 diabetes.

However, type-2 diabetes is not the only concern associated with elevated blood sugar levels. Insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome, heart disease and even Alzheimer's disease are all related to blood sugar levels. In fact, some doctors are beginning to refer to Alzheimer's disease as type-3 diabetes, due to the association between blood sugar levels and the cognitive disorder.

The good news is, there are many steps you can take to help balance your blood sugar. Diet and lifestyle play a critical role. For more, check out registered dietitian Nicole Gould's 7 Diet and Lifestyle Tips to Reduce Blood Sugar Spikes.

Additionally, supplements can have a dramatic effect.

While there are many great options available, one of the most comprehensive formulas I’ve seen is Glucose Support. Glucose Support (available here on shop.vchoice.com) combines a variety of research validated minerals and herbs at effective doses. The formula combines chromium, vanadium and alpha lipoic acid with time-tested herbal remedies including gymnema, bitter melon and lagerstroemia, commonly called banaba leaf. Over the years we have received great feedback on this product, including some cases where people have been able to reduce or even eliminate their prescription medications. 

Please note, if you are currently taking glucose medications, do not use this product before consulting your doctor as it can enhance the effects of many glucose medications.
