4 out of 5 stars

My husband is a diabetic for ten years now, and he has been taking metphormin twice a day but his sugar numbers are inching higher and he does not want to increase the dosage of his meds. We tried some of the herbs you mentioned and it helped but I think the trick is to find a good cocktail of lots of herbs. Each herb helps a little but if they are taken all together that can be powerful. My husband started taking something that has gymnema sylvestra and cinamen, bitter melon and chromium...It brings down his sugar 30 to 40 points. there are a few good herbal formulas on the market. One just has to go on line and try them out. My husband takes his herb pill after dinner cause thats when his sugar spikes, some people take a pill in the morning. Its important to check your sugar to figure out when a supplementary herbal pill is needed.

Good luck, Rachel
