Today I’m going to share five vitamins that can help with the complications of diabetes.
High blood glucose affects four main tissues, including:
1. The eyes
2. The arteries
3. The nervous system (including the brain)
4. The kidneys
However, the damage to these tissues can lead to a myriad of health problems.
Glycation is a combination of sugar and protein in the body, and it can lead to this dysfunction of tissues. An A1C score is basically a number that represents glycated hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells) to help tell how bad someone’s diabetes is.
Glycation can also occur when someone consumes a combination of sugar or carbs and protein or fat.
When glycation occurs, it can build up into advanced glycation end products (AGEs). With AGEs comes a lot of free radical damage, inflammation, and oxidative stress.
The good news is that there are natural things that can inhibit glycation.
Vitamins that inhibit glycation:
2. Vitamin C
3. Vitamin D
4. Vitamin E (tocotrienols complex without tocopherols)
5. Vitamin B6
Other natural glycation inhibitors:
• Alpha lipoic acid
• Green tea (EGCG)
• Aged garlic
• Bitter melon
