Diabetes can be difficult to live with at the best of times, and if it is not managed properly it can lead to various other health issues.
In order to start fighting diabetes, it is important to understand how it is caused.
What causes Diabetes?
Diabetes is diagnosed when your body cannot properly process sugar in the bloodstream, which leads to constant high levels of sugar in the body. This means that the pancreas has to make much more insulin than usual, and thus it can end up in your blood sugar levels spiking up and dropping down like a rollercoaster.
Usually, medication is used to try and treat diabetes, but this may not be the best solution as it only targets the symptoms and not the root of the problem.
Alternative Treatment Options for Diabetes:
When it comes to alternative methods of treating diabetes, one of the main differences is addressing diabetes as part of your overall health improvement rather than a disease on its own. Recent studies suggest that certain foods have a blood sugar stabilizing effect, and here are 7 of them:
When conducting the studies, the researchers found that cinnamon could be used to lower blood sugar levels by up to 26% over the 40 day testing period. It is much more than just a festive spice!
- Fenugreek seeds
This tangy spice that tastes a bit like liquorice can be toasted and used in anything from salads to cereal. Not only does fenugreek help lower blood sugar levels, it is also a blood thinner. For this reason, you should be careful when using it if you are on blood thinning medications.
Although it is not yet clear exactly how this herb works, early results would suggest that it helps increase insulin production and slows down the decay of pancreatic beta-cells.
As with fenugreek, ginseng is also a blood thinner so keep this in mind if you are on certain medications.
Broccoli is a great source of chromium, which has been shown to help with blood-sugar stabilization. Broccoli is also an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is also great when trying to treat diabetes.
As mentioned above, fiber is great for treating diabetes. It has natural blood sugar stabilizing properties and is also high in magnesium.
Peanuts and peanut butter are a great and tasty way to lower blood sugar levels. Both peanuts and peanut butter are very easy to add into your diet, which makes them some of the best options as blood stabilizing foods.

“My wife and I have been using the Manna now for just over a year. We both lost more than 20 kgs using it as a meal replacement twice a day. The change in formulation last year did not enhance the taste. As a matter of fact, I was looking to go elsewhere. However, this new formulation tastes great and we will continue to use it. Would be nice if your retail outlets got the new formulation as I don’t drink the old one. But I must say, ordering from the factory has been great with speedy delivery.” – Danie de Waal
“I just had the new Chocolate shake with milk instead of yoghurt… absolutely delicious!” – Joan
