Title: Myo inositol for diabetes
Post by: Amra94 on June 21, 2019, 11:53:43 AM
Inositol (vitamin B8), is a type of sugar with several important functions. It influences the action of insulin, a hormone essential for blood sugar control.
"Our study showed for the first time a direct beneficial effect of the supplementation with the association of myo- and d-chiro-inositol on glycemic parameters of subjects with T2DM. Particularly, a significant reduction in blood glucose and HbA1c levels was registered. Inositol supplementation did not lead to any side effect, confirming the safety of this molecule"

For type 2 diabetes it would be to avoid processed foods. Stick with mainly plant-based wholefoods food (with minimal or no oils in cooking).
