      Anyone know of any supplements to help lower A1c. Mine isn't in the diabetic range but it is higher than I would like it to be. I believe it is more due to the medications I am on but...

      Cinnamon -
      Chromium -
      Berberine -

      Any others

      look at sns dispose man. i have a log on it here where i was testing my blood sugar and it pushed mine down. idk if it will drive down your a1c but it will def control your glucose. truenutrition has a good one that mountain dog developed. if you want to message the man when it comes to health and supplementation get on dante trudel's instagram and message him about supplements that will improve it. dude has some crazy supp protocols for damn near everything bodybuilding related and the research and blood work to back up what he preaches

      Supplements That Fight Insulin Insensitivity

      Resveratrol (50-500mg/day, up to 3g/day): Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol that can protect against inflammation and insulin resistance1-4. In fact, it has been shown to reduce blood insulin and glucose levels. Resveratrol functions to improve insulin sensitivity by increasing glucose uptake. More specifically, it improves activation of the insulin, signaling pathway and the translocation glucose transporters to the cell membrane4. It does this by enhancing the action of a protein known as SIRT1 and the energy sensor AMPK (Adenosine 5’Monophosphate-activated Protein Kinase)4, which function together to activate the metabolic regular of glucose metabolism PGC1a. To add resveratrol to your daily routine, you could try taking 500mg in the morning and evening.


      Berberine (100mg/meal): Berberine5-7 is a chemical found in plants that improves the expression of insulin receptor and glucose transporters in the brain6. Berberine also increases glucose utilization in fat and muscle cells while also decreasing glucose absorption in intestinal cells. More specifically, one month of berberine supplementation can reduce fasting blood glucose levels, postprandial blood glucose levels, insulin resistance index, and inflammatory cytokine (TNFa, CRP, IL-6) levels5. Hence, berberine reduces the inflammatory cytokines that give rise to impaired insulin signaling and results in lower blood glucose levels and increased insulin sensitivity. If you want to add berberine to your supplement regime, consider starting off with 100mg before meals.


      Citrus Bergamot (500mg in the morning and evening): A derivative of lemon and bitter orange, this citrus extract has been shown to both reduce stress and insulin resistance. It’s also been shown to improve glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity and reduce blood glucose up to 22 percent8, through the activation of AMPK9. This is no small feat, as AMPK is the body’s energy sensor and regulator. If you want to add Citrus Bergamot to your daily routine, you could try taking 500mg in the morning and evening10-12.


      Chromium Picolinate (500-1,000mg fasted in the morning): Chromium Picolinate is a chromium derivative that is effective in regulating blood sugar. In the 1950s, it was discovered that chromium supplementation could reverse glucose-intolerance13-15 and enhance insulin action16, 17. Chromium has been tested in many models of impaired insulin signaling (diabetes, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, etc.), and each time, it has been shown to improve impaired insulin signaling16. Other work has demonstrated that the effects of chromium on glucose tolerance are due to its direct effect on insulin signaling and glucose metabolism. Chromium can augment insulin-mediated glucose metabolism in adipocytes and can cause a three- to eight-fold increase in insulin-dependent stimulation of the insulin receptor without impairing its basal activity18. Additionally, chromium increases insulin-dependent transport of the glucose receptor Glut4 to the cell membrane under insulin-resistant conditions19, 20. Hence, chromium is a potent and proven enhancer of glucose metabolism in those who are insulin-resistant. If you want to add chromium picolinate to your daily routine, you could try taking 500-1,000mg fasted in the morning.
