Type 2 Diabetes – How Do Onions Work to Lower Blood Sugar Levels, Even Early Morning Levels?


One of the foods that helps in the control of your Type 2 diabetes, includes the humble onion. For at least four thousand years the humble onion has served not just as food but also as medicine in ancient Egypt, in India, and around the world.

Among the many applications of the onion is blood sugar control, making this inexpensive and tasty vegetable one of the most useful functional foods for Type 2 diabetics.

How Does The Humble Onion Aid Type 2 Diabetics? Onions whether cooked or raw, contain a substance… allyl propyl disulfide (APDS), that is actually capable of dramatically lowering your blood sugars levels. APDS apparently helps to prevent your liver’s deactivation of insulin, therefore insulin remains in your bloodstream longer and this helps to lower your blood sugar levels.

Restrains the Liver From Releasing Sugar in the AM: Onions work to help keep blood sugar levels in control in much the same way as the drug metformin. They contain sulfur-bearing compounds (the same compounds that can be stinky on the breath), that regulate the activities of two important enzymes in your liver. These sulfur compounds moderate the action of the enzymes glucose-6-phosphatase and hexokinase to restrain the liver from releasing as much sugar early in the morning and also in times of stress.

If you notice that your morning blood glucose levels are creeping upward, then extra onions in your diet might be very helpful for you. And if you are going through:

  • stress on the job
  • if you have a cold or the flu, or
  • you are having to fight off chills from nasty winter weather,

onions can be a likewise helpful and healthful addition to your diet.

How to Tolerate Onions Daily: The really effective way to consume onions is as raw onion juice. Up to 50 ml (a little less than one-quarter cup) is the right dose for aiding diabetes control.

Most of us, however, live and work in situations where the people in our lives might disapprove of regular use of onion juice. If onion juice doesn’t appeal to you, it’s also helpful to take in up to 60 g (2 ounces or so), of onions with your food every day.

Brushing after your meal removes most of the smelly compounds from your breath, and if you eat onions no later than six hours before you go to bed, you won’t have to deal with onion breath all night and in the morning.

Eat onions often, eat any color of onions, cooked or raw to help lower your blood sugar levels.

Natural Medicine Gives Hope for Women With PCOS


In today’s world, many women know what PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is, and this is due to the increasing prevalence of this condition around the world. While PCOS carry such a name due to the fact that there are many small cysts found in ovaries of women with this condition, there are also certain other symptoms and signs that might disturb their healthy life; infertility, symptoms of hormonal imbalance and irregular menstruation are few of them. These multiple small cysts disturb the hormonal cycle, which results in a serious hormonal imbalance. Also, with the time, this disease increases the risk of diabetes and heart diseases. This is why PCOS is a serious matter when it comes to women health.

Unfortunately, allopathic medicine, as well as western medicine, does not have a cure for PCOS other than the 500mg Metformin pill which is prescribed for every woman with this condition. We see that Metformin is a medication that is prescribed for two conditions; during Diabetes Mellitus type 2 and during PCOS. It is quite obvious that this medication is not very specific in treating or terminating this condition, which changes a woman starting from her appearance to her daily lifestyle.

While for many, the most effective treatment for PCOS is defined as the eating certain healthy foods, controlling the weight and doing regular exercises, in Ayurvedic medicine, we have a better definition. Actually, we have a better answer for this condition and it is a real cure that completely heals PCOS.

These medications are not artificial or synthetic. They are a complex of extracts from natural herbs, fruits, and seeds. There are several Ayurvedic herbal supplements to treat PCOS and they are;

  1. Polycys

  2. Cystomin DS

  3. Femdays

  4. Myo-inositol

  5. Bacopa Medicated Ghee

  6. Spirulina

  7. Moringa Oleifera

Each supplement contains a blend of several herbal extracts or a single, very powerful herbal extract that has multifunctional abilities. These natural capsules participate in balancing the hormonal levels of women who suffer from PCOS. They improve and normalize the levels of LH/FSH ratio and maintain the menstrual cycle. At the same time, they also participate in maintaining other hormones of the body that are indirectly influenced by the female hormones at some level. These supplements can prevent irregular menstruation, heavy bleeding, and severe pain during menstruation while promoting the fertility. Acne, unwanted hair growth, and oily skin, which are due to increased levels of testosterone during PCOS, can also be effectively reduced with the use of this supplement.

Although there are many changes in the body to worry about during this condition, an increment of functional body stress and inflammation can also be noted. This is a result of broken balance between female and male hormones. But the herbal extracts in these Ayurvedic supplements play their natural wonders by increasing the level of female sex hormones and decreasing the levels of male sex hormones.

It might be surprising for you, how natural extracts from some well-known herb, fruits, and seeds can be the only answer we have got for PCOS so far. But it is true, and it is working. Hundreds of women already testify their health experience and their journey in getting back their normal lives just with the use of these supplements. According to them, the most amazing part is that these are natural medications and therefore, they do not have to worry about any side effects, unlike in any western medications!
