When you’re first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, your biggest concern is making sure your blood sugar doesn’t skyrocket.
But once you start lowering your blood sugar with meds, it’s CRITICAL that your levels don’t take a nosedive.
Glucose levels that are brought down too low can be just as dangerous as those sugar spikes — if not more.
For too many diabetics, those numbers can jump all over the place… even within the course of a single day.
If you’re struggling to control your blood sugar, it’s time to get off the see-saw.
You can do that with an Asian herb named after a mighty king.
It’s in the same family as asparagus… but you won’t find it in your local produce aisle.
You’ll have to look UNDERGROUND.
An herbal cure fit for a king
There are no less than 74 species of Solomon’s seal… and most of them grow in Asia.
They’re all known by the scientific genus Polygonatum— but it’s Polygonatum officinale that’s most renowned for its medicinal benefits.
Solomon’s seal has become known as a symbol of power in ancient medicine.
But while its namesake, King Solomon, may give this flowering plant a mystical or even magical reputation… its real-world value as medicine has been scientifically proven.
Especially when it comes to achieving PERFECT blood sugar control.
The most potent part of the plant is its rhizomes – the underground stem where it stores many of its nutrients.
In a 2009 study, Chinese researchers found that a flavonoid-rich extract of Solomon’s Seal significantly reduced high blood sugar in diabetic mice after just nine days.
Imagine… REVERSING your diabetes… in just over a week!
Also CRUCIAL to the antidiabetic potential of Solomon’s seal is its saponin content.
Saponin beats back blood sugar woes in four key ways:
- Stops your body from making too much glucose on its own.
- Helps your body process and use sugar from the food you eat.
- Improves insulin secretion and sensitivity.
- Reduces the risk of diabetic complications (such as neuropathy) by increasing antioxidant activity and decreasing levels of oxidative stress.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s called “yùzhú” or “Rhizoma Polygonati Odorati” – a nod to the scientific name it’s synonymous with, Polygonatumodoratum.
But you’ll do well with any “Solomon’s seal” supplement from a quality maker.
It can lower your blood glucose levels, so talk to your doc about getting you off your diabetes meds first before trying any herbal remedy.
You won’t want to combine the two therapies. Your hyperglycemia can quickly flip to hypoglycemia, a life-threatening condition.
