    Chromium

    Main use: Lowering blood sugar
    Typical dosage: 200 micrograms once daily.


    This trace mineral is thought to enhance the action of insulin as well as being involved in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Some research shows that it helps normalize blood sugar — but only in people who are deficient in chromium.

    7. Billberry

    Main use: Protecting the eyes and nerves
    Typical dosage: 80 to 120 milligrams two times per day of standardized bilberry extract.


    This relative of the blueberry contains powerful antioxidants in its fruit and leaves. These anti*oxidants, called anthocyanidins, seem to help prevent damage to tiny blood vessels that can result in nerve pain and retinopathy (damage to the eye’s retina). Animal studies have also suggested that bilberry may lower blood sugar.

    8. Alpha-Lipoic Acid

    Main uses: Easing nerve pain, lowering blood sugar
    Typical dosage: 600 to 800 milligrams a day.


    Called ALA for short, this vitamin-like substance neutralizes many types of free radicals. A build-up of free radicals, caused in part by high blood sugar, can lead to nerve damage and other problems. ALA may also help muscle cells take up blood sugar. In a German study, a team of scientists had 40 adults take either an ALA supplement or a placebo. At the end of the four-week study, the ALA group had improved their insulin sensitivity 27 percent. The placebo group showed no improvement. Other studies have shown a decrease in nerve pain, numbness, and burning.
