  • Nutraceuticals and Diabetes:How Dietary Supplements Can Help
Nutraceuticals and Diabetes:How Dietary Supplements Can Help

Thanks to a study conducted by the University of South Australia, researchers have examined the effectiveness of some of the most commonly used supplements, or nutraceuticals, to help manage diabetes.


Cinnamon, curcumin and resveratrol were all effective in fighting a multitude of factors, including modulating glucose levels, lowering cholesterol and improving insulin resistance.

Why Is This Important?

Diabetes is a chronic condition associated with high levels of glucose in the blood. It can affect the circulatory, digestive and nervous systems, and cause kidney damage. While Type 1 diabetes cannot be halted, Type 2 is not only very common, but highly preventable in up to about 60% of cases.


Maintaining a healthy diet and exercising daily. As simple as that may seem, many people around the world do not take the necessary steps to keep themselves thriving towards their fullest potential.

It is approximated that some 422 million (1 in 11) people around the globe are living with diabetes. 46% of people with diabetes are undiagnosed.

By 2040, there will likely be 642 million people living with diabetes worldwide.

Researcher Dr. Evangeline Mantzioris suggests the importance of recognizing the role nutraceuticals have in modern society, especially given their popularity among consumers. She tells News Medical Life Sciences, “More than 40% of Australian adults regularly use dietary supplements to enhance and improve their diets. They’re easily available, accessible and affordable, and unlike pharmaceuticals, they don’t need a prescription, making them extraordinarily popular.”

Back to the Results

Dr. Mantzioris reports that the university study did conclude the efficacy of cinnamon, curcumin and resveratrol. Each had their unique reasons.

“We found cinnamon can reduce fasting blood glucose levels in Type 2 diabetes; curcumin can improve insulin resistance in pre-diabetic and Type 2 diabetes, and resveratrol can reduce glucose levels,” while also improving insulin resistance.

Nutraceuticals were also tested on obesity, a key risk factor for diabetes, but none had any considerable impact for weight loss. That’s not to say, however, that dietary supplements cannot help people lose weight, especially when combined with healthy eating habits and physical activity.
