Disorders in the sugar metabolism are still to be described as a widespread disease. A wide range of effective micronutrients and trace elements from the diet can help support balanced sugar metabolism in many ways.
These include the following:
Banaba: Extracts from the leaves of this tree, which belongs to the loosestrife family, can help facilitate the flow of sugar from the bloodstream into the cells. Plant substances such as bitter melon and Gymnema Sylvestre, on the other hand, can help reduce the absorption of sugar molecules from the intestine.
Blueberries: These berries contain special pigments called anthocyanins, which among other things act as cell protection. At the same time, the fruit can help lower blood sugar. Anthocyanins can also help support normal vision.
Biotin plays a special role in supporting metabolic processes, including fatty acid metabolism. Foods such as liver, egg yolk, oatmeal, wheat germ, nuts, mushrooms and soybeans are rich in this nutrient.
Fenugreek seeds: This is one of the most interesting medicinal plants in Europe, a plant species in the butterfly family subfamily. Among other things, fenugreek has a positive effect on blood sugar levels by increasing sugar utilisation.
Other nutrients to promote normal sugar metabolism include vitamins, certain minerals, alpha lipoic acid and L-carnitine.
