The role of herbs in blood sugar imbalance

Herbs that improve insulin signaling arepomoeabatatas (Caiapo), Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon) and Panax ginseng (Korean ginseng). They help to manage blood sugar imbalances associated with fatigue, mood symptoms and sugar cravings. A recent study has shown that consuming 3 g of cinnamon daily reduces postprandial serum insulin levels.Caiapo is included in this formula as it has been shown, when this unique potato was included in their diets, to decrease fasting blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetic patients.8 Korean ginseng has also shown metabolic benefits in type 2 diabetics: during an eight week trial it was associated with reduced fasting blood glucose, reduced body weight, reduced hemoglobinglycation and elevated mood, when compared to placebo.
