Supplements for Diabetics

Supplements for Diabetics– Vitamins have an essential part to play in the maintenance of health and in the healing process.

Man throughout history has survived with only the vitamins and minerals that were abundant in the foods they ate and they found them in nature’s own pharmacy.

Thousands of studies have proven the usefulness of all vitamins.

While most of us fall short of the RDA requirements for optimum health, diabetics are worse off. If you lack certain vitamins, you will suffer the same symptoms as a diabetic.

It is estimated that there are some 2 billion people who can be classified as having “syndrome X”. They exhibit some form of insulin resistance. While they are within normal blood sugar range, their pancreas is producing far more insulin than the average rate.

In other words, their pancreas is overproducing insulin in order to keep blood sugar stable. And the primary reason is due to a lack of essential nutrients.

Vitamins are safe. 400,000 Americans die every year from tobacco use and another 125,000 dies from the side effect of prescription drugs but no one has died from ingesting too many vitamins.

Let’s look at some of the most important vitamins crucial to the survival of the diabetic and the non-diabetic alike:

Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a molecule similar to glucose and like glucose it needs insulin to get into the cells. Even if they take adequate amounts of vitamins, diabetics still exhibit a deficiency of vitamin C.

If you are diabetic, you need to take much more of this vitamin than the average person. A lack of this vitamin leads to scurvy-like symptoms: Poor wound healing, less immunity to infections, excessive bleeding, elevations in cholesterol and a depressed immune system.

Vitamin C is required for proper immune functioning and the manufacturing of collagen, the main protein substance of the body.

Taking Vitamin-C helps maintain the elasticity and function of the blood vessels and helps maintain proper blood pressure control. It has a mild effect on improving blood sugar control.

While supplementing is necessary, it should not be used as an excuse for not eating foods that are rich in this vitamin.

Supplements alone though cannot replace the high fiber, low fat and other healthy nutrients found in fresh fruit and vegetables. A supplement of 2000 milligrams has been shown to reduce the glycosylation (the tanning) of proteins in the blood) and helps avoid the toxic accumulation of sorbitol inside the cells.

Evidence shows there is a correlation between overweight people and the lack of Vitamin-C. The lower the level of vitamin-C, the greater the chance that you will be overweight. Those who have adequate levels tend to burn off 30% more fat during exercise than someone with low levels of C.

Since diabetics are largely overweight and need to shed pounds, low C levels work against them. C is high in anti-oxidants that help against the rapid aging that occurs due to free radical damage in the body.

While citrus fruits contain a good amount of vitamin-C, vegetables such as broccoli, bell peppers, potatoes and Brussels sprouts are also excellent sources.

Apples are an excellent source of Vitamin-C, quercitin and pectin. One Finnish study showed that those who ate the most apples and other foods high in quercitin had a 20% less chance of dying from diabetes and heart disease. The old adage that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” still holds true today.

Vitamin E: This important vitamin acts as an antioxidant to protect against the dangers of damage to cell membranes. Nerve cells are most vulnerable, particularly the delicate nerves found in the eyes and feet. Little to no sensations in the feet and blindness are two common symptoms of diabetics.

Vitamin E has also been shown to:

● prevent free radical damage from LDL (bad) cholesterol and the damage to vascular linings.

● Improve the function of blood vessels and the cell lining themselves.

● Increase magnesium concentration within the cells

● Decreases levels of C-reactive proteins and other inflammatory compounds.

● Increases levels of glutathione, important for the antioxidants within the cells

● Improve the rate of electrical impulses in the nervous system

● Improve blood flow to the eyes.

● Improve kidney function and normalizes creatine clearance.

Be sure to take the natural form of the vitamin. Natural vitamin- E has a “d-” designation as alpha tocopherol. “dl-” is the synthetic form. Your body only recognizes the natural form. The synthetic version has been shown to retard the absorption of the real vitamin-E.

B Vitamin Complex: Niacin B-3: Niacin helps in the burning of calories and, like chromium, is an essential component of GTF (glucose tolerance factor) that helps move glucose through the cell membrane.

It has been shown to lower the need for insulin in type 1 diabetics, sometimes reversing the early onset of the disease. It helps improve beta function in the pancreas and improves blood glucose regulation.

The best form of niacin is inositol hexaniacinate which helps reduce fats in the blood and has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels by 18%, triglycerides by 26% and increase the good HDL cholesterol by 30% when 1800 to 3000mg is used daily.

However, if you suffer from gout, liver disease, peptic ulcers or hepatitis you should consult your doctor before taking Niacin supplements. Niacin’s effect is enhanced with Vitamin-C.

Niacinamide is another B-3 vitamin and while niacin helps in lowering your cholesterol levels, niacinamide is used primarily to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 150- 200 mg should be taken before a meal 3 times daily.

Vitamin B-6: Known as pyridoxine it helps balance triglyceride levels and normalize cholesterol levels. B-6 plays a part in the chemical transmitters in the nervous system, red blood cells and prostaglandins.

Supplementation with B-vitamins help fight nerve damage, so common among diabetics. Most diabetics are deficient in B-6. It also is beneficial for gestational diabetes, brought on by pregnancy.

Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid: One of its uses is to reduce the pain of headaches, arthritis and the pain from dental surgery. Deficiency of this vitamin leads to the onset of neuropathy and increase serum levels of homocysteine.

Taking the drug metformin lowers your vitamin B-12 stores, so you should have your serum levels checked every 6 months while you are on the drug. Taking this important vitamin will reduce the chance of coronary heart disease.

Studies have shown that taking Folic acid along with B-6 and B-12 helps to reduce homocysteine levels and clean out artery plaque. You can lower your homocysteine levels by eating less meat and other methionine-rich food.
