Garlic is useful not just in the kitchen but also in your medicine kit. It can thin blood just like aspirin and can therefore prevent heart attacks.
It prevents arteries from clogging, and reduces blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It is also used liberally in soups to clear up a cold or chest infections. It is also used to treat intestinal worms and fungal infections, and not just in humans.
The most important thing is that garlic is said to have anti-cancer properties. Studies have shown that it can prevent digestive cancers, breast and prostate cancer.
All this at only 4 calories per clove, which is not bad at all, but eating too much raw garlic can result in heartburn, flatulence and diarrhoea and sometimes, skin rashes. So taking a good garlic supplement can really make a big differance. For More Info Click Here
There are important studies out of Harvard that establish the benifit of consuming resveratrol and improving Type 2 diabetes. Reveratrol has a positive effect on strengthening the individual cell. Strengthening the cell through increasing mitrocondria also has a positive effect on the cells utilization of insulin. Increasing insulin usage deminishes Type 2 diabetes. I am now taking a new and exciting resveratrol product that actually increases the positive effect in the cell over resveratrol alone. The company that produces this product has teamed up with Harvard researchers and is taking full advantage of the research being done on resveratrol. This company has a sterling reputation and is 53 years old. To find out more click here.
All of us with diabetes are aware of the importance of maintaining normal blood sugar levels. There are some herb combinations that have helped me. The blend of minerals, botanicals, and antioxidants that I currently use seems to help. I currently use 200mg of Magnesium;5mg of Zinc; 400 mcg of Chromium; 540 mg of Taurine;100 mg of Vanadium; 10 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid and 1.8 mg of Banaba Leaf Extract. The product has helped level out the highs and lows and as you know, consistent low blood sugar levels is important. For more information click here.
There are some interesting studies regarding resveratrol, an ingredient in the seeds and skin of grapes used in making red wine, and the effects on diabetes in mice.
ScienceDaily (Oct. 4, 2007) — Even relatively low doses of resveratrol–a chemical found in the skins of red grapes and in red wine–can improve the sensitivity of mice to the hormone insulin, according to a new report. As insulin resistance is often characterized as the most critical factor contributing to the development of type 2 diabetes, the findings “provide a potential new therapeutic approach for preventing or treating” both conditions, the researchers said.
There is an exciting and new product that provides reveratrol plus other ingredients. If you want to know more about this new product just click here.
There are some studies indicating that resveratrol, an ingredient in red wine, has positive effect with individuals who have Type 2 diabetes. You can Google resveratrol and Type 2 diabetes to find out more. There is also a new product called Vivix on the market that actually increases the impact of resveratrol in the body. I am very excited! I have been using this new product for more than 30 days and will report on my experience with it with my own Type 2 diabetes. If you want to learn more about Vivix go to
