Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the body’s pancreas does not produce enough insulin or does not properly respond to insulin produced, resulting in high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. There are several different types of diabetes, but the most common forms are type 1 and type 2. Both impact glucose levels, and if left untreated, can cause many complications.

Below are three supplements with known advantages and support for those suffering from diabetes. The first is an amino acid - NAC - that helps control blood glucose levels. The second, alpha lipoic acid that several studies suggest may help people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, who have pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in arms and legs from nerve damage. Alpha lipoic acid also helps lower blood sugar levels. And finally, a readily absorbed Magnesium, a crucial mineral and a vital nutrient that drives close to 300 different biochemical reactions in the body and is more often discarded by diabetics through frequent urination.
