Why Take Supplements?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that a large percentage of Americans get less than 70 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of antioxidant vitamins and many essential minerals.  Countless studies link a host of diseases (including atherosclerosis and heart disease, high blood pressure, colitis, diabetes) to today's highly processed diet, high in saturated and trans fats, caffeine, and refined carbohydrates. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

Heart Disease & Diabetes
A high level of homocysteine in the blood is now being recognized as a new, independent risk factor for heart troubles.  But the good news is that a high level of homocysteine can be treated with modifications to your daily diet or by supplementation. If you are getting plenty of folate, B6 and B12 from your food, they "detoxify" the homocysteine, driving levels down and keeping you safe from heart troubles. Important information for a diabetic diet.

CoQ10: A Wonder Enzyme
What if there were a natural substance with the potential to combat devastating diseases and the effects of aging on the skin? That's what some say could be the promise of the supplement coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). (Diabetic Complications, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol)

Diets High In Omega-3 Oils Prevent Heart Attacks
Omega-3 fatty acids are lipid structures found abundantly in cold water fish and flaxseed oil. They have been extensively researched for their ability to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Heart Attack)

Supplements That Care For Your Heart
Coenzyme Q10 is found in large concentrations in heart muscle because the heart requires a great deal of energy to function effectively. This has led scientists to research the possibility that coenzyme Q10 supplementation might have a positive effect on cardiovascular function, and many clinical studies indeed support this contention. (Cardiovascular Disease, Congestive Heart Failure, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol)

Mineral Deficiencies And Food Cravings
Clinicians note that deficiencies in certain minerals may trigger carbohydrate/sugar cravings. (Sugar Cravings, Diabetes Nutrition)

Baby Boomers First Generation With Shorter Life Spans Than Their Parents
Baby boomers might be the first generation to enter retirement in worse health than their parents, according to a growing body of evidence, the Washington Post reports. (High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Baby Boomers, Diabetic Complications)

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

Type 2 Review
If you've  become accustomed to the blood sugar roller coaster unleashed by refined sugars and processed foods, you've probably had fleeting thoughts about the possibility of developing type 2 diabetes. Perhaps other factors also put you at risk for diabetes. But you should know that relatively simple lifestyle modifications can prevent type 2 diabetes. ( Diabetic Risk Factors, Diabetic Symptoms, Preventing Diabetes)

Glucose Intolerance Reversed by Carnitine Supplement
Supplementing with the nutrient carnitine helps obese animals to clear the extra sugar in their blood, something they had trouble doing on their own, researchers at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina, report. A team led by Deborah Muoio, Ph.D., of the Duke Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center, also performed tests on human muscle cells that showed supplementing with carnitine might help older people with prediabetes, diabetes, and other disorders that make glucose (sugar) metabolism difficult. (Glucose Intolerance, Carnitine, Prediabetes)

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 has the ability to protect and strengthen the heart and lower blood pressure. CoQ10 is a vital enzyme, a catalyst to the production of energy in our cells. Without it, our cells simply won't work. (Coenzyme Q10, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Angina)

Hitting A Nerve
Neuropathy is one of the best arguments to fight blood glucose control. It's a nerve disorder that can affect almost every system in your body. It results from bursts of high blood glucose that cause oxidative stress to the nerves. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy)

Flaxseed Oil Lowers Blood Pressure
Regularly eating a diet supplemented with flaxseed oil may lower blood pressure and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. (Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure, Diabetic Nutrition)

Good Fats and Bad Fats
Some fats are bad such as saturated fats and trans-fats. However, there's another kind of fat called essential fatty acids - and they are indeed essential. These unsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fats, make our cell membranes more flexible, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce mortality from heart disease. (Diabetic Nutrition, Essential Fatty Acids, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure)

Diabetes Risk May Be Associated With Elevated Iron Levels
High levels of iron in the blood may foreshadow the development of type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests. Research has shown that people with a genetic condition that causes huge elevations of iron in the blood are known to be at risk for type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to determine whether the diabetes link would hold true for healthy people with just mildly elevated levels of iron. (Diabetes Research)
