what is a natural blood sugar reducer?
what can you take to reduce your blood sugar?

There are many foods which naturally helps in reducing blood sugar.
Avocado – This is actually a fruit and contains the healthy fats that raise your insulin sensitivity and is thus another of the foods that lower blood sugar.

Cinnamon – this is a commonly used spice that contains natural compounds that mimic the effect of insulin, as well as reducing LDL cholesterol in people with diabetes.

Garlic – This beneficial herb is another of the foods that lower blood sugar. Garlic can raise insulin production and increase insulin sensitivity.

Flaxseed – ground flaxseeds are rich in lignans and magnesium, which helps lower blood sugar. It is also a potent source of omega-three fatty acids, which also help in controlling blood sugar.

Barley – is a fiber packed and healthier alternative to rice for people trying to reduce a high blood sugar level.

Cherries – are a great choice among foods that lower blood sugar as they contain red-pigmented antioxidants, which can help raise your body’s insulin output.

Onions – The high sulfur and flavonoid content of onions which when consumed at a level of 2 ounces per day by diabetics caused a significant reduction in blood sugar

Exercise and insulin injections for an immediate effect. Exercise and a healthy diet for the long term.

Be careful exercising if your blood sugar is extremely high (like over 240) If you are spilling ketones and you exercise your blood sugar will go up instead of down, which can make you very ill very quickly.

I've heard cinnamon helps. I have capsules to take but forget to on a regular basis.

If your blood sugar is high, you can play around with these foods and stuff, but make certain to keep a close check on your blood sugar level. No food or "natural" supplement can lower blood sugar as effective as medication supplied by your doctor. It's very easy to test and see if any of these natural remedies work by keeping a log of your blood sugar levels. Try testing around the same time every day and see if eating an avocado really makes any difference.
