Medical experts have been hard at work for many years now working to develop the best supplements to lower blood sugar.
Supplements of this kind may benefit those with not only prediabetes but also perhaps as well the sufferers of type 2 diabetes. For diabetics looking for something else choosing the right kind of supplement may be able to help reduce the dose of medication recommended by doctors.
Although, in any case, these supplements should not be taken to replace medication completely.
Like with any dietary supplement, both the smart and sensible thing is to consult with a medical professional beforehand!
Indeed, it is always best to be safe rather than sorry, but let’s not take away the fact that some of these supplements actually work and by finding the right one can make a HUGE difference. To not only health, if you need help to manage insulin levels, but also your lifestyle which may be affected as a result.
So, with this in mind today I will be looking at 9 supplements to lower blood sugar and for diabetes support. This is a selection of different products I have reviewed previously here. 2 of these are my personal recommendation but please keep reading to get the lowdown on several other products as well.
These might be some you have likely come across in your searches before but if not here is everything you need to know.

7 Supplements To Lower Blood Sugar (TOC)
So, What Is High Blood Sugar?
Hyperglycaemia is the name given to high blood sugar by scientists and doctors. In serious cases, this can be life-threatening and lead to conditions such as (DKA) and Diabetic Ketoacidosis. Which is a condition where the body shuts down because it is trying to use Fat as an energy source due to a severe lack of Insulin.
Symptoms of Hyperglycaemia may include;
- A Dry Mouth,
- Excessive Thirst,
- Frequent Urination
- Recurring Infections incl. UTIs
- Low Energy and
- Stomach Pains
If you believe that you have high blood sugar you should seek medical help ASAP
Also, Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycaemia) can be a serious condition too. Blood sugar relies on Insulin for regulation so it doesn’t go too high or low. Insulin resistance is when blood sugar does not respond to insulin which is mostly what ends up causing diabetes. Either from a lack of Insulin being created by the Pancreatic cells or it simply not working.
As for Blood Sugar Supplements
Obviously, the dietary supplement industry is big business. For not only those looking for something else other than pharmaceuticals but also as a convenient way to bolster nutrition without the need for sourcing fresh and often exotic ingredients on a regular basis.
Blood sugar support supplements are very popular in this respect. New products are released on a regular occurrence. Often which contain very similar ingredients. Cinnamon Bark and Liquorice Root are fairly common. Chromium Picolinate is another. The best ones to look for are the ones that have these popular ingredients but also others.
Examples include; Berberine, ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) and Bitter Melon…
Each supplement I will review below, including the ingredients. To find out more please check out the separate links for my individual blood sugar support product reviews.
i.) Bioptimizers Blood Sugar Breakthrough
Owners: Blood Sugar Breakthrough
Based In: USA/UK
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
How Much To Buy?: 1-Bottle = $69.95, 2 Bottles (BUY 2 Get 1 FREE), 3 Bottles (BUY 3 Get 3 FREE)
Uniquely formulated with high-quality ingredients. Made with Veggie capsules and patented blend.
Includes: 1-Year Money Back Guarantee
Ingredients: Bee Propolis, Glucovantage® Dihydroberberine (DHB), Glycostat® Bitter Melon Extract, Cinnulin PF® Cinnamon Bark 20:1, Innoslim®, Glucofit® – Banaba Leaf Extract, Benfotiamine®, Fucoxanthin, R-ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid), Biotin, Chromium Picolinate, G.Sylvestre Extract and Tibetan Holy Fruit
My Verdict: Bioptimizers is a brand you can definitely trust. This is my top pick out of the whole 9 supplements to lower blood sugar that I am sharing today. Mostly because generally speaking all of the Bioptimizers products are very high quality and I expect this to be no different. Also, you will not find this blend anywhere else.

ii.) Vitapost Blood Sugar Support Plus
Company: Vitapost, aka Vitabalance
Based In: Richmond, Virginia, USA
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Stars
How Much To Buy: $24.95 (1 Bottle), $44.95 (2 Bottles), $89.92 (4 Bottles + 1 Free)
Description: Company based in the USA offering various different health supplements at very affordable prices. Blood Sugar Support is your typical Blood Sugar Supplement made with every ingredient you should expect.
Warranty: Only 60-Days Unfortunately!
Ingredients: Banaba Leaf, Guggul, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon, G.Sylvestre, Vanadium, Vitamin C + E, Biotin, Chromium, Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese, Liquorice Root, Yarrow, Cayenne Pepper, Juniper Berry, White Mulberry Leaf, ALA, L-Taurine
Having personally dealt with Vitapost I have quite a lot of good things to say about them. I haven’t tried this one and I can’t find many reviews outside the actual website.
Despite this though they would probably be my first choice if I was in the market for a cheap Blood Sugar supplement. Also, it is worth noting that this is more or less everything found in Altai Balance but for cheaper.
Although of course, I would say things that are low value often are low value for a reason. You get what you pay for.

iii.) Altai Balance
Company: Altai Balance
Based In: Illinois, USA
Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5
Other Products: None
How Much To Buy: $49.00 (1 Bottle), $39 ea. (3 Bottles), $34 ea. (6 Bottles)
Description: Dietary Supplement with 19 Natural Ingredients for Blood Sugar and Weight Loss Support
Warranty: 180 Days
Banaba Leaf, Guggul, Bitter Melon, Cinnamon, G.Sylvestre, Vanadium, Vitamin C + E, Biotin, Chromium, Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese, Liquorice Root, Yarrow, Cayenne Pepper, Juniper Berry, White Mulberry Leaf, ALA, L-Taurine
My Verdict: Actually something really bugs me about Altai Balance. I like that they offer the 180 Days Money Back Guarantee. This definitely makes them appear trustworthy but then the ingredients are almost identical to the Vitapost Blood Sugar Support Plus Formula. Not only this but it’s twice as expensive. My only reason for giving it a higher rating is because Altai Balance has a longer money-back guarantee. 180 Days compared to 60 Days.

iv.) CLE Holistic Health Naavudi Glucose Support
Company: CLE Holistic Health
Owners: Dr Stacey Miller
Based In: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Rating: 4.0 Stars Out of 5
Other Products: Alistrol, CLE Weight Loss Support, CLE Immune Support, CLE Mood Support, CLE Vitamin D3
How Much To Buy: $69.95 (1 Bottle (120 Capsules), Buy 2 Get 1 Free, or Buy 3 Get 2 Free
Warranty: 90 Days Money Back Guarantee
Description: Fulvic Infused, Extra Strength and All Natural. According to the website, this supplement will provide results within 2-4 weeks and it has a 98% Success Rate. The formula is made with 9 Ingredients and appears to be very different from other supplements as it does not contain Cinnamon or Liquorice Root.
Ingredients: Bitter Melon, Malabar Kino, Indian Bay, Fenugreek, Java Plum, Holy Basil, Gurmabooti India, Kutaki, Indian Lilac and Fulvic Acid.
My Verdict: There isn’t a whole lot of customer reviews out there for this product but there are definitely some that are very positive. The formula is unlike any other blood sugar supplement I have found so far and the 90 Days Money Back Guarantee really is not bad considering that results can be felt after 2-4 weeks (apparently). The price is a little high but considering this is for a big bottle of 120 pills it actually isn’t that bad a deal.
v.) CarboFix Carbohydrate Management Formula
Company: Gold Vida
Owners: Matt Stirling
Based In: London, Ontario, Canada
Rating: 3.0 out of 5 Stars
Other Products: None (I don’t think)
How Much To Buy: $49.00 (1 Bottle), $39.00 ea. (If bought as 3 Pack), $34 (If bought as 6 Pack)
Money-Back Guarantee: 60 Days from Date of Purchase
Description: Apparently based on a secret Ecuadorian recipe to lower blood sugar Carbofix is the sole product (I think) from the Gold Vida brand and is owned by Personal Trainer and Fitness Consultant Matt Stirling.
Ingredients: Chromium Picolinate, Berberine HCL, Cinnamon Bark, ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid), Benfotiamine, Naringin (from Grapefruit)
My Verdict: In a way, I think that Matt Stirling who is a professional PT and Health and Fitness Consultant has really put his reputation on the line with this product. Yet something about it I don’t like such as the money-back guarantee (only 60 Days) and the lack of reviews or a proper website for the Gold Vida company.

My Verdict: I haven’t really had much of a chance to look over this product yet. The website looks pretty professional and they do offer a 365 Days Money Back Guarantee which I like. The ingredients are pretty much what you would expect from a blood sugar control supplement but still, I would probably rather go for some of the others that I’ve mentioned above as the formula is very similar to other products. I kind of think there is better value elsewhere.
Read My Original Review>> N/A ~ Haven’t written one Yet!
Taking the time to look through each of these 7 products I would probably rate them in the following order;
- Bioptimizers Blood Sugar Breakthrough
- HFL Solutions Blood Sugar Optimizer
- CLE Holistic Health Naavudi
- Purehealth Research Blood Sugar Formula
- Vitapost Blood Sugar Support Plus
I would say my reasoning really for choosing the Bioptimizers product is that this is the most unique. The formula mostly consists of patented blends and of course they offer a 365 Money Back Guarantee.
The HFL Solutions and Pure Health Research Products likewise offer the same warranty but ingredients-wise I think Bioptimizers have the edge. Although actually CLE Holistic Health Blood Sugar Formula is very unique and comes in a bottle of 120 capsules so I think might be the dark horse here.
Otherwise, Altaibalance and Vitapost Blood Sugar Support Plus I think are basically the same product ingredient-wise. The Vitapost product is by far the cheapest here so definitely try this if you are looking for good value.
CarboFix I really wouldn’t bother with but it is not the worst product I’ve ever reviewed. There are just better products out there I would say. I really don’t like their money-back guarantee – 60 Days from the date of purchase is not a good look.
Not saying it doesn’t work but anyway…
