I recently found this image and thought it such helpful info I had to share:
Herbs that lower blood sugar: Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary, Oregano, Sage, Curry, Garlic, Ginger, Turmeric, Cayenne & Marjoram.
Cinnamon – How does it help the blood sugar?
Cinnamon works by lowering insulin resistance. Researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%.
Probably the most enjoyable of herbs that lower the blood sugar to take.
You can use the Cinnamon spice or you can use the essential oil.
A therapeutic grade essential oil has a nice kick to it and can grow on the taste buds making it very enjoyable to use several times a day.
I like to put 2 or 3 drop on a teabag or on loose leaf tea leaves, then make tea as usual and the oil emulsified into the tea.
