Discussions that mention potassium

Diabetes board


Lots of natural products assist with glucose control. First, any mineral....calcium, magnesium, sodium, lithium, potassium, chromium, vanadium, copper and tons of others. Chromium and Vanadium are more studied, and are stronger in action (have different actions from each other), though research is ongoing with other uncommon metals.

Bitter melon has been shown to reduce fasting glucose and helps rats lose weight (don't know of any human weight loss studies).

If you surf for diabetes herbs lots of formulas will pop up, I'm sure. Or you could search for these lesser known ones: Suaeda fruticosa, Salacia oblonga, Globularia alypum, Coccinia indica, Hibiscus rosaea.

Many of these will show up in formulas if you search the scientific names.
