You know the drill…
Every time you go to the doctor, he doesn’t hold back.
He’s the guy that drives a nail with a sledgehammer… and kills a spider with a blowtorch.
That’s how he approaches treating your diabetes – at least, if your numbers aren’t EXACTLY where he wants them.
But while HE’S on the warpath… YOU might be suffering from blood glucose that dips TOO LOW.
And once it takes a nosedive, it’s tough to get it right back where you want it.
Fortunately, there’s a way to keep your blood sugar in PERFECT balance (a.k.a. glucose homeostasis).
It’s an herb that’s been inspiring poets and healers alike for HUNDREDS of years…
And with it, you can count on a much GENTLER approach to beating back hyperglycemia.
An iron fist… inside a velvet glove
Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria L.) is a medicinal herb that comes from a flowering plant, sometimes called “church steeples.”
It’s been used in Europe since medieval times to heal wounds – including on the battlefields of France.
In flower symbolism, agrimony has come to represent thankfulness.
And it offers PLENTY to be grateful for… if you’ve struggled to manage your blood sugar control.
One animal study showed that significant improvements to blood glucose levels occurred after just five weeks!
Research has revealed 5 of its key antidiabetic actions, which include…
- STIMULATES insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells
- KEEPS glucose out of the blood and into tissues that can use it for energy
- INHIBITS enzyme activity related to carb absorption (α-glucosidase)
- PROTECTS blood vessel health, and
- IMPROVES blood flow
Don’t underestimate those last two – because one of the most common complications of diabetes is vessel damage and poor circulation. (That’s why the Anglo-Saxons used it to boost their performance in the bedroom!)
But there’s one more HUGE thing that agrimony can do for a diabetic…
And that’s to DESTROY free radicals and ERASE oxidative damage.
Those are two of the main culprits behind the tissue damage that accompanies diabetes.
Since agrimony is a potent antioxidant, it can help stave off those devastating complications.
You can find it in capsule form or as a tincture in the supplement aisle or online…
But don’t combine it with any blood sugar-lowering meds without checking with your doc first.
You could accidentally send your glucose levels through the floor, which is a life-threatening condition.
On its own, however, agrimony has a low risk of hypoglycemia.
