It happens just about every time you turn on the TV. There’s yet another commercial for a new drug for folks battling blood sugar issues.
This one… they insist… is the answer. It will FINALLY get your blood sugar under control.
Yeah, sure. We’ve heard it all before. Besides, even when these drugs do work – reducing your all-important glucose levels – they often come with bunches of unwanted side effects.
In other words, you can end up trading one problem for a bunch of others. And you feel absolutely MISERABLE in the process.
Because with every new med comes a whole new set of dangers. In some cases, some of the newest ones have even been linked to amputations. Talk about a terrifying trade-off.
But promising new research reveals another option. It’s an unexpected all-natural solution that can help control blood sugar. It could either prevent full-blown diabetes from striking or make it a whole lot easier to manage if you already have been diagnosed.
This powerful oil could help fight diabetes
The new study zeros in on something called black cumin or Nigella sativa. But it’s probably best known simply as black seed oil.
Black seed oil has been used for centuries in traditional medicine, especially in Asia and Africa. In fact, legend has it that a bottle of black seed oil was unearthed in King Tut’s tomb.
But now cutting-edge research shows how this potent oil could help with a very modern scourge, putting it to the test against a placebo in patients with diabetes.
The folks who got the seed oil had improvements in nearly every key measure – especially the ones your doctor cares about most:
- fasting blood sugar
- LDL cholesterol
- total cholesterol
- waist circumference
- blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic)
That’s a LONG list of incredibly impressive benefits. But let’s focus on that first one today – improved blood sugar – because it’s something that’s been hinted at in previous studies over the years.
Get better blood sugar with black see oil
Black seed oil appears to help enhance the body’s insulin response, which ensures that glucose levels behave. And that, of course, leads to improvements in fasting blood sugar levels and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels.
A previous study even found the powerful oil may help with some of the most troubling complications of diabetes, such as painful neuropathies. But, as impressive as that is, blood sugar isn’t even what this stuff is best known for.
Many folks already rely on black seed oil as a natural way to fight the inflammation that plays a central role in pain, blood vessel health, chronic disease, and more.
The oil also has a reputation as a natural immune booster. And you don’t need me to tell you how important that is. This past year has been a reminder to us all.
But the benefits don’t end there. Black cumin oil is fantastic for your skin, too.
It can reportedly help fade those dark spots caused by aging, sun damage, and hormones. And it leaves your skin feeling more elastic, fighting off the free radicals behind fine lines and wrinkles.
There are different ways to get it and use black seed oil. Some folks apply it directly to the skin for conditions such as dryness, itchiness, and eczema or directly to joints to soothe arthritis and other aches and pains. Others take it as a capsule, which is how it was used in the new study.
If you want to give black seed oil a try to help tame your OWN blood sugar, your doctor can help you figure out the proper dosage for you.
