Like other B complex vitamins, thiamine is
considered an "anti-stress" vitamin because it may strengthen the
immune system and improve the body's ability to withstand stressful
conditions. It is named B1 because it was the first B vitamin discovered.
Thiamine is found in both plants and animals and plays a crucial role in
certain metabolic reactions. For example, it is required for the body to form
adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy.
Preliminary evidence suggests that thiamine along with other nutrients -- may
lower risk of developing cataracts. B complex vitamins are necessary for
healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system
function properly, and are necessary for optimal brain function. Recommended dosage 1.1 - 2mg.
|In addition to producing energy for the
body, riboflavin also works as an antioxidant by scavenging damaging
particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally
in the body but can damage cells and DNA, and may contribute to the aging
process, as well as the development of a number of health conditions, such as
heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants such as riboflavin can neutralize free
radicals and may reduce or help prevent some of the damage they cause.. Recommended dosage 1.6 - 2mg.
|In addition to playing a role in the
breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, vitamin B5 is critical to the
manufacture of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones
produced in the adrenal glands (small glands that sit atop the kidneys).
Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it
helps the body use other vitamins (particularly B2 or riboflavin). It is
sometimes referred to as the "anti-stress" vitamin because of its
effect on the adrenal glands, but there is no real evidence as to whether it
helps the body withstand stressful conditions. Recommended dosage 5 -10mg.
|Vitamin B6 helps the body make several
neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to
another. It is essential for normal brain development and function, and helps
the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine (which influence
mood) and melatonin (which helps regulate the body clock). Along with
vitamins B12 and B9 (folic acid), B6 helps control levels of homocysteine in
the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that may be associated with heart
disease. B6 is also necessary for proper absorption of vitamin B12 and for
the production of red blood cells and cells of the immune system. Recommended dosage 1.3 - 2mg.
|Folic acid is crucial for proper brain
function and plays an important role in mental and emotional health. It aids
in the production of DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material, and is
especially important when cells and tissues are growing rapidly, such as in
infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy. Folic acid also works closely with
vitamin B12 to regulate the formation of red blood cells and help iron
function properly in the body. Vitamin B9 works with vitamins B6 and B12 and
other nutrients to control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine.
Elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with certain chronic
conditions, such as heart disease and, possibly, depression and Alzheimer's
disease, although the link isn't clear. Recommended dosage 400 -600mcg.
|Vitamin B12 is an especially important
vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve cells, and it aids in the production of
DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material. Vitamin B12 also works closely with
vitamin B9 (folate) to regulate the formation of red blood cells and to help
iron function better in the body. Folate and B12 work together to produce
S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), a compound involved in immune function and mood.
Vitamins B12, B6, and B9 work together to control blood levels of the amino
acid homocysteine. High levels of homocysteine are associated with heart
disease. However, researchers aren't sure whether homocysteine is a cause of
heart disease or merely a marker that indicates someone may have heart
disease. Recommended dosage 2.4 - 2.8mcg.

|People with diabetes tend to have low
levels of antioxidants, which has led some researchers to theorize that this
might explain why they're at increased risk for conditions such as
cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E supplements and other antioxidants may help
reduce the risk of heart disease and other complications in people with
diabetes. Research shows that antioxidants may help control blood sugar
levels and lower cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes while
protecting against the complications of retinopathy (eye damage) and
nephropathy (kidney damage) in those with type 1 diabetes. Chronic
deficiency may also cause liver and kidney problems. Although most people in
the United States aren't seriously deficient in vitamin E, it' s not uncommon
for people to be slightly deficient. Vitamin E is also important in the
formation of red blood cells and it helps the body to use vitamin K. Recommended dosage 22.5 - 28.5mg.
|Preliminary research indicates that a
combination of biotin and chromium might improve blood sugar control in some
people with type 2 diabete,. Your body needs biotin to metabolize
carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids (the building blocks of protein). Biotin
is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails and it's found in many
cosmetic products for hair and skin. It is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning
the body does not store it; however, bacteria in the intestine can make
biotin. Recommended dosage 30 - 600mcg.
|Every organ in the body -- especially the
heart, muscles, and kidneys -- needs the mineral magnesium. It also
contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones. Most important, it activates
enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels
as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients
in the body. People who have type 2 diabetes often have low levels of
magnesium in the blood. A large clinical study of over 2000 people found
that getting more magnesium in the diet may help protect against developing
type 2 diabetes, studies suggest that taking magnesium supplements in
capsule may help blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity in people with
diabetes or prediabetes. Recommended dosage 270 - 400mg.
|Zinc is an essential trace mineral, so you
get it through the foods you eat. Next to iron, zinc is the most common trace
mineral in the body and is found in every cell. It has been used since
ancient times to help heal wounds and plays an important role in the immune
system, reproduction, growth, taste, vision, and smell, blood clotting, and
proper insulin and thyroid function. Zinc also has antioxidant properties.
Therefore it helps protect cells in the body from damage caused by free
radicals. Free radicals may contribute to the aging process, as well as the
development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and
cancer. Antioxidants, such as zinc, can neutralize free radicals and may
reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Recommended dosage 8 - 11mg.
|Selenium is an essential mineral found in
trace amounts in the body. It works as an antioxidant, especially when
combined with vitamin E, by scavenging damaging particles in the body known
as free radicals. Free radicals can damage cell membranes and DNA, and may
contribute to aging and a number of conditions, including heart disease and
cancer. Antioxidants, such as selenium, can neutralize free radicals and may
reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Selenium plays a
role in thyroid function and is needed for the immune system to work
properly. People with a number of conditions, ranging from rheumatoid
arthritis to some types of cancer, often have low levels of selenium. Recommended dosage 40 - 70mcg.
|People with diabetes either do not produce
enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin that their bodies produce.
Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food
into energy needed for daily life. As a result, glucose or sugar builds up in
the bloodstream. Chromium was later identified as the active component of
GTF. Today, scientists believe that chromium helps insulin bring glucose from
the blood into the cells for energy. Low chromium levels can increase blood
sugar, triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood), cholesterol levels, and
increase the risk for a number of conditions, such as diabetes and heart
disease. Recommended dosage 24 - 44mcg.

||Preliminary human research reports that
gymnema may be beneficial in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes when it
is added to diabetes drugs being taken by mouth or to insulin. Improvements
in levels of triglycerides, LDL and free fatty acids were also noted in the
||Bitter melon has traditionally been used
as a remedy for lowering blood glucose in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Preliminary clinical studies have indicated that bitter melon may decrease
serum glucose levels.
||Fenugreek seeds, a spice found in many
curry preparations, are high in fiber and have been shown to regulate glucose
and improve lipid levels in both animals and humans. In two small studies of
people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, fenugreek seed powder lowered
blood glucose and improved levels of blood cholesterol and trigylcerides,
among other beneficial effects.
||The stems and fruits of Opuntia
ficus-indica contain eight flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties.
Nopal has been studied for its effects on blood sugar levels, with one study
published in the "Journal of Ethnopharmacology" in 1995 finding the
cactus extracts caused a significant decrease in blood glucose values by
almost 18 percent.
||Banaba helps the body to handle glucose
(glucose transport activator)
||The pancreas plays a role in controlling
blood sugar and insulin levels by creating vital normalizing cells called
alpha, beta and delta cells. A study in 1997 of vanadyl sulfate concluded
that the trace mineral protects insulin secreting pancreatic beta cells.
Other studies confirm this finding.
||Although both Asian (Panax ginseng) and
American (Panax quinquefolium) appear to lower blood glucose levels. Several
clinical studies report a blood sugar lowering effect of ginseng in
individuals with type 2 diabetes, both on fasting blood glucose and on
postprandial glucose levels. One clinical study found that people with type 2
diabetes who take ginseng before or together with a glucose meal experience a
reduction in glucose levels after they consume the meal.
||Quercetin belongs to a group of plant
pigments called flavonoids that give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables
their color. Quercetin acts like an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory,
and may help protect against heart disease and cancer. Flavonoids such as
quercetin are antioxidants -- they scavenge damaging particles in the body
known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and
even cause cell death. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and may
reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
||Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that
is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose
into energy. Unlike other antioxidants, which work only in water (such as
vitamin C) or fatty tissues (such as vitamin E), alpha-lipoic acid is both
fat- and water-soluble. That means it can work throughout the body. In
addition, antioxidants are depleted as they attack free radicals, but
evidence suggests alpha-lipoic acid may help regenerate these other
antioxidants and make them active again. Alpha-lipoic acid can lower blood
sugar levels, and its ability to kill free radicals may help reduce pain,
burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in people who have nerve damage
caused by diabetes (called peripheral neuropathy).
