Once your doc diagnoses you with type 2 diabetes… it’s like he’s got blinders on.
He’s not looking at ANYTHING besides your blood sugar readings.
And he’ll pump drug after drug into you until he can get your levels back to “normal.”
While he’s playing the “numbers game”…
The inflammation associated with diabetes continues to wreak HAVOC on your cardiovascular health… vital organs… and nervous system.
It’s time to break out of that “tunnel vision” mindset.
Fortunately, there’s a “kitchen cure” that help you control your blood sugar… AND beat back the damage and dysfunction that can make diabetes so DEVASTATING.
THOUSANDS of years ago, one of the first plants that humans began to cultivate was garlic (Allium sativum).
Today, China is a behemoth producer of this pungent culinary herb…
And it’s so popular around the globe… cargo ships SMUGGLE it across borders to avoid paying pricey tariffs.
Imagine if EVERYBODY knew what Hippocrates, the father of “modern medicine,” determined long ago…
That garlic could be prescribed for MANY illnesses – not the least of which is diabetes.
There’d be a MAD RUSH to control ALL the garlic cloves!
Used as a drug alternative in Ayurvedic and even ancient Iranian medicinal practices, the “stinking rose” has proven its hypoglycemic benefits across MULTIPLE studies.
In a 2017 meta-analysis, Chinese researchers found that taking garlic supplements significantly lowered fasting blood glucose levels in type 2 patients.
And the effects took hold in as little as two months!
What’s more, the garlic helped the patients STABILIZE their blood sugar in the long run, rather than offering JUST a “quick fix.”
Long-term blood glucose levels (as measured, for instance, by HbA1c) were also reduced in the garlic group.
The key seems to lie in the compound allicin, which is released when garlic cloves are chopped or crushed.
That’s where you get the telltale garlicky smell from.
Allicin appears to power garlic’s ability to SLAM THE BRAKES on diabetes complications… through its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
That includes improvements in diabetes-related…
- damage to pancreatic beta cells, which produce insulin
- liver injury
- kidney damage (diabetic nephropathy), the primary cause of chronic kidney disease and kidney failure
- nerve damage (diabetic neuropathy)
- heart enlargement (cardiac hypertrophy)
- hardened arteries (atherosclerosis), resulting in better blood vessel function, and
Animal studies have also shown allicin to improve cardiac function and regulate abnormal heart rhythm in diabetic subjects.
And that means that garlic can help you manage your ENTIRE disease… rather than focusing on just one component of it.
Now, if you’re already on blood sugar-lowering meds, adding garlic into the mix might work TOO well… and make your glucose levels PLUMMET to dangerously low levels.
Check with your doc before combining the two.
Otherwise, garlic supplements should be perfectly safe to take.
The review of studies I just mentioned used either raw garlic or garlic powder tablets…
But you can also find it in other forms – such as aged garlic exact and steam-distilled garlic oil.
Dosages in the studies above ranged from 50 to 1,500 mg.
Note that if it’s promoted as “odorless,” it’s probably MISSING those stinky sulfuric compounds that help beat back blood sugar woes.
Or you can go straight to the active constituent… and choose an allicin supplement.
