We know that there are many foods, herbs and spices designed to help balance blood sugar and prevent diabetes. Yet to this day, Western medicine continues to ignore this reality and promotes the use of life-threatening conventional drug "therapies" that cause many health problems such as skin infections and kidney failure.

Simply put, Western medicine really needs to catch up with the good science available today. There are studies that show that the natural plant alkaloid - berberine - has a beneficial effect. Berberine is an alkaloid that is present in a number of plants, including barberry, mahonia, and buttercup. Mahogany and Kanda buttercup, along with other herbs for blood cleansing, are included in the Detox formula, which is intended for blood cleansing, you can read more about that formula HERE.

Problems with commonly used diabetes medications?

Metformin is often prescribed by conventionally trained doctors if your blood glucose levels are not controlled by lifestyle measures alone. In fact, most doctors think that metformin is particularly useful if you're overweight – since it's less likely to cause weight gain than some other glucose-lowering pills. A sulfonylurea is usually used if you cannot take metformin (perhaps because of side effects) or if you are not overweight. These include gliclazide, glimepiride and glipizide. And these drugs work by increasing the amount of insulin your pancreas can produce.

Just remember this simple truth: diabetes medications tend to make you gain weight!

The noticeable effect of extra insulin in the serum results in a constant state of hunger, which results in overeating leading to an increase in body fat. Fats cause the secretion of larger amounts of insulin from the pancreas - which causes hyperinsulinemia. The toxic role of excess insulin has been observed in almost every age-related disease. This has been confirmed by numerous studies. One of the known effects is weight gain, leading to insulin resistance and reliance on more insulin-boosting drugs. Simply put, aging, poor diet and other factors make cells less sensitive to insulin. Loss of insulin sensitivity contributes to excessive insulin release as the body tries to force serum glucose into cells. By the way, as a side note, type 1 diabetics should be just as careful in their diet and lifestyle choices.

Is berberine really better than diabetes drugs?

Studies show that berberine can lower glucose levels. Compared with metformin, berberine showed an identical effect in the regulation of glucose metabolism in fasting insulin and postprandial insulin. In the regulation of lipid metabolism, it was found that the action of berberine is better than metformin. It has been shown to significantly lower triglycerides and total cholesterol.

What is the history of berberine?

Berberine has been used for over 2,500 years in natural medicine, for its wide range of health effects including cardiovascular, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. It works against bacterial diarrhea, intestinal parasites, fungal infections and Candida albicans. Surprisingly, berberine has shown anti-obesity effects in numerous studies. In fact, berberine reduces the size and number of fat cells in the body. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, patients newly diagnosed with diabetes and cholesterol/triglyceride abnormalities, but not yet on medication, took either 500 mg of berberine or a placebo capsule twice daily. After three months, berberine supplementation not only significantly lowered blood sugar, but also triglycerides (35.9 percent), LDL cholesterol (21 percent), and total cholesterol (18 percent)—compared to minimal decreases in cholesterol and increases in triglycerides in control group. . In addition, the berberine group had lower blood pressure and a modest loss of weight and abdominal fat.

Why is berberine so effective?

Berberine works through several mechanisms, including insulin mimicry, improving insulin action and reducing insulin resistance, and up-regulating insulin receptor expression. A collaboration between Chinese, Korean and Australian scientists at the Garvan Institute in Sydney shows that berberine helps with diabetes. Research shows, in animal models, that berberine works in part by activating an enzyme in the muscles and liver that is involved in improving tissue sensitivity to insulin. This in turn helps lower blood sugar levels.

A better way to balance blood sugar

Weight loss alone can reverse prediabetes and even type 2 diabetes. Published in the journal Phytomedicine, a recent study by South Dakota researchers found that berberine helps people lose weight – safely and effectively. Berberine has been found to increase the "expression" (number and activity) of insulin receptors. The increase in number and activity naturally allows the same amount of insulin to be more effective than before. Of course, there are many ways to regulate (normalize) blood sugar in type 2 diabetics – including an organic whole (fresh) food diet; moderate exercise; dietary supplement - especially magnesium and vitamin C plus the use of herbs and spices.

Bottom line: never ignore the health hazards associated with blood sugar imbalances...your quality of life depends on it.
