After I discovered I had high blood sugar, I tried a few Ayurvedic supplements I found online. They were all designed to get into the bloodstream and essentially draw out the excess sugar. My blood sugar readings improved a little, but not as much as when I took the prescription medications my doctor ordered. I'd say those natural treatments will help people who either can't afford the prescription medication or haven't seen a doctor yet.
I'd really like to try gurmar, since it actually has an effect on sugar cravings. That's been one of my biggest challenges as a newly diagnosed diabetic. I can improve my diet in other ways, but I still crave sugar in my beverages and I still want a sweet dessert after dinner. If gurmar can help me get over my addiction to sugar, I'm all for it.
