How to lower blood sugar naturally

Managing blood sugar is possible with various natural methods. A wholistic lifestyle change will help to not only maintain normal blood sugar levels but also keep other diseases at bay.

Beneficial foods for blood sugar management

Foods with plenty of fiber that digest slowly are excellent for controlling sugar levels. In this category are beans, brown rice and oatmeal. They provide carbohydrates and the fiber helps you to feel full. This also aids in losing weight.

Research in Canada showed that consuming a cup of legumes daily for 3 months caused blood sugar levels to go down. You should also include vegetables like broccoli, green beans and cabbage which are low carb and high fiber. In a recent study it was shown that 43% of type 2 diabetic patients following a vegan diet had less need for diabetes medications after 22 weeks.

Timing of meals

Meals should be spread out throughout the day so that carbohydrates are kept consistent. Skipping meals or fasting will cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate.

According to the American Diabetes Association, 60 grams of carbs are recommended for men and 45 grams for women at each meal.

Managing stress

The body reacts to stressful situations by producing more energy in the form of fat and blood sugar. This sugar then stays in the blood causing glucose spikes.

Meditation, yoga, breathing techniques, enjoyable hobbies are all way to relieve stress which in turn helps to bring blood sugar levels to normal.

Exercising and getting rest

Daily exercise for those with type2 diabetes is essential for normalizing blood sugar levels. Something as simple as going walking everyday for a few minutes can prove very beneficial. This will also help to reduce weight.

Just as it is important to exercise it is equally necessary to get adequate amount of sleep every day. Lack of sleep can cause hormone and blood sugar imbalances. You should aim for 7-8 hours of undisturbed sleep.

Herbs that help maintain blood sugar levels

Certain herbs like Gymnema, Karela, Guggul, Licorice, Cinnamon, Indian Kino Tree, Punarnava and Black Pepper help to control blood sugar levels naturally. In Indian Ayurvedic traditional medicine, blends of these herbs/vegetables/spices are used for maximum effect. Diabecon is a combination of various such herbs and is considered helpful in managing blood sugar levels.
