Instant help from a tiny seed

If you have type II diabetes, also known as noninsuln dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), there's a simple step you can take at mealtimes to lower your blood sugar and help keep your diabetes under control. The secret is a water-soluble fiber from the psyllium seed.

Psyllium seed husk is technically an herb. It acts as both an over-the-counter drug, in products like Metamucil and other bulk laxatives, and as a food additive in many breakfast cereals, like Kellogg's Bran Buds.

As early as 1985, research showed psyllium helped control blood sugar levels. Now new studies confirm that psyllium is especially effective against NIDDM.

In separate trials, psyllium before meals caused blood glucose levels to drop from 9 to 20 percent in people with NIDDM. And it doesn't seem to matter if you're already taking drugs to lower your blood sugar or if you're trying to control it with diet alone. The results are just as amazing.

The amounts tested varied, but most experts recommend only 5 grams (or about one teaspoon) with water, three times a day, before meals. It's an easy thing to do at home or on the go. There are usually no side effects as long as you drink plenty of water each day and don't go over the recommended amount. That's because too much fiber can cause diarrhea and bloating. An added bonus -- including psyllium in you regular diet will help lower your cholesterol level, too.
