14 Amazing Herbs That Lower Blood Sugar

We live in a world where prescription medicine is getting more and more expensive as well as controversial. Alternative medicine is gaining momentum and with good reason! The same is true for treatments for diabetes type 2. You have therapies that can reverse diabetes through lifestyle and diet changes, natural supplements that can help stabilize blood sugar levels, and also herbs that lower blood sugar. Not only are these alternative therapies safer, but they are also easier on your pocket, on your body and mind. Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is necessary for the body’s overall health.

    OK last night at Wal-mart I brought two gallons of Arizona diet green tea with ginseng. After drinking a glass or two of it, I then notice on the back of the jug "CONTAINS A SMALL AMOUNT OF HONEY. NOT FOR THE USE BY DIABETICS WITHOUT ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN".
    Is a CYA type notice, or is there something to this? I already drunk most of a gallon now and I'm not feeling any ill effects, but I want to be on the safe side.
    And yes I'm diabetic.

    I am not a diabetic but my wife is Type-1 since she was 10 years old.
    So around here we monitor Dear Spouse's blood glucose levels often.
    I think that a saccharide is a saccharide and unless this fluid raises your blood glucose levels a lot, it should be OK, not different effect than eating something sweet.
    Good Luck
