regulating blood sugar with supps
I was researching this about 3 months ago when I was having problems with going hypoglycemia when I came off my 3 month cycle of GH 4iu/day 5days on/2off. The problem was only helped by eating every 3-4 hours and waking up in the middle of the night to eat and with time.
I was trying to find supps and drugs that would safely put your blood sugar back in line.
i found a lot of supps that studies showed that it had promise but unfortunately those same supps would have studies with inconclusive results. The only ones that I remember being consistently positive:
1)high fiber diet
many studies out there...
4)lowering carb intake(I did not say no carbs)/eat less

this can get out of hand just like your supps for weightlifting. I think following the recommendations above with a multivitamin with a good amount of vitamin E is enough but I want to make this more complete.
list of supps that have promise but did not find enough evidence or found conflicting studies:
the herbs Gymnema sylvestre and banaba leaf
vitamins A,C, and E
Galega officinalis (20% guanylhydrazine)
Bitter Melon extract (Momordica charantia)
some info on the above supps
