Prevention's Pick — Herbs with diabetes control

Dec 1, 1998

Prevention magazine's publication, 200 Herbal Remedies, linked the following herbs with diabetes control:

Burdock

Although often doubted even by herbalists, tradition says that burdock lowers blood sugar.

Cinnamon

This common spice, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, can reduce insulin needs.

Fenugreek

Well-known as an aid in controlling blood sugars, the only problem with fenugreek is its odor. The company Nutricept developed an odorless form of Fenugreek in its product Limitrol.

Gotu Kola

This herb could help people with diabetes because it is known in India, Indonesia and Europe to heal wounds and improve circulation.

Sage

Another spice found in many American kitchens, sage has been proven in laboratory studies to boost the action of injected insulin.
