Bitter Melon- this fruit contains at least three active substances with anti- diabetic properties. These substances work individually or together to help reduce blood sugar levels. It contains a lectin that reduces blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and suppressing appetite- similar to the effects of insulin in the brain.
Cinnamon- this spice is known to reduce blood sugar by imitating the effects of insulin and increasing glucose transport into cells. It can also help lower blood sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity making insulin more efficient at moving glucose into cells.
