I am slowly working my way through Dr Mark Hyman's book The Blood Sugar Solution, and putting into practice those things that apply to my life. Today I'm looking at the supplements that he recommends for people with Type 2 Diabetes.
First and foremost: A multivitamin and mineral supplement
1,000-2,000IU of vitamin D3 with breakfast
1,000-2,000 mg of omega-3 fats, split between breakfast and dinner,
100-200 mg of magnesium at breakfast and at dinner.
123-250 cinnamon at breakfast and at dinner
25-50 mg of green tea catechins at breakfast and dinner.
The following recommended supplements are not in my regime yet-I don't understand them fully.
200-600 mcg of chromium
300-600 alpha lipoic acid twice a day-
1-2 mg of biotin
2.5 grams of PGX, a super fiber, 15 minutes before each meal with 8 oz of water. I don't take this because I get plenty of fiber in my diet. I do not like the side effects of too much fiber.
What supplements do you find helpful in controlling Diabetes?
