A recent study took pregnant rats who were suffering from gestational diabetes, and they gave them propolis to see if it had a beneficial impact on regulating their glucose levels. The results showed that propolis did, in fact, help regulate blood sugars, and it also helps in several other areas as well. Taking propolis consistently can also help protect you against hypertension during your pregnancy, as well as promote faster wound healing which is extremely important in diabetic patients.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from institutes of higher learning in Malaysia and Nigeria have undertaken study regarding the risks of pregnant women with diabetes.
  • Diabetes, which affects more than 600 million people worldwide, can have deadly effect on the kidneys and the cardiovascular system.
  • Pregnant women with diabetes risk cognitive impairment to their newborns should their sugar levels not be maintained.

"Their study, which was published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, showed that the superfood propolis not only improves pregnancy outcomes but also placental oxidative stress."

Chromium is an important trace mineral for carbohydrates and fats processing by the human body. With the recent eating habits of refined foods, it's generally naturally deficient to many people. It's recommended to consume at least 50 micrograms of it each day. Similarly, the eating habits of today expose majority of people to diabetes. Chromium plays a major role in helping the body cells respond to insulin.

In addition, a sufficient level of the mineral availability to the body leads to lower insulin necessity. On the other hand, its deficiency in the body has been associated with diabetes. It helps prevent diabetes by aiding insulin in glucose metabolism as well as preventing insulin resistance for victims already using insulin shots. It's generally low in the blood but it plays a major role of enhancing insulin efficiency thereby helps control blood sugar levels.

Food Sources:

You can get chromium from foods like broccoli, green beans, grape juice, potatoes, bananas, beef, orange juice and apples. There are also supplements that come in various forms and strengths. For instance, there are chromium picolinate, chromium chloride, chromium polynicotinate, chromium GTF and many others. These supplements differ in their absorption rates but have been proven in several studies to lower blood sugar as well as cholesterol. Some supplements are also safe to take alongside other medications. However, such a decision should always be taken with the consent of a medical doctor.

Victims of type 2 diabetes have usually been found to have low levels of chromium in their bodies. Due to this reason, supplements have greatly assisted such individuals tackle diabetes. Similarly, women suffering from gestational diabetes have had their blood sugar levels drop after using chromium picolinate. The dosage to use varies but many doctors prescribe 1000 mcg every day for victims already suffering from diabetes. Vitamin C has been found to hinder the uptake of chromium. It's, therefore, essential to watch out what you are consuming if you will be taking the supplements.

Sustained release chromium will help keep blood levels high with this important mineral and help one manage their blood sugar better.


L-Carnitine L-Tartrate Inhibits Gestational Diabetes

Vienna, Austria—Intake of L-carnitine L-tartrate during pregnancy may thwart a sequence of reactions leading to gestational diabetes, according to a study published in Chemical Monthly (136, 8:1523-1533), 2005) (

Scientists from the University of Vienna noted deficiency of carnitine in pregnant women from the 12th week of gestation through delivery leads to down-regulation of expression of certain enzymes involved in fatty acid metabolism; loMRNA levels of these enzymes promotes an increase in free fatty acid levels conducive to insulin resistance. The researchers found supplementation with L-carnitine L-tartrate (as L-Carnipure, from Lonza) increased relative mRNA levels of these enzymes in pregnant women.

In a release on the findings, Lonza ( noted there appears to be increasing evidence that L-carnitine may play an important role during pregnancy, particularly in women following a meat-reduced or vegetarian diet.
