Vitamins and Minerals vital for diabetics

Research has shown that taking a potent vitamin and mineral supplement every day dramatically reduces the incidence of infection for patients with Type 2 Diabetes. When choosing a comprehensive multivitamin formula to help support healthy blood glucose level, look for one that contains these nutrients:

(a) Alpha lipoid acid - this antioxidant helps improve glucose uptake by muscle and promotes removal of glucose from the blood. It also helps regenerate and recycle other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10 and glutathione to act against free radicals.

(b) Vanadium - this essential trace mineral exerts an insulin-like effect in the body, promoting glucose uptake into muscle, liver and fat cells. It increases insulin sensitivity and reduce blood glucose levels in those with type 2 diabetes.

(c) Chromium - an essential mineral that helps to improve the action of insulin by increasing the number of insulin receptors on cells and activity of these receptors, thus increasing the efficiency of glucose uptake into cells. It has significant positive effects on glucose, insulin, HbA1c and cholesterol levels.

(d) Biotin - a water-soluble vitamin B that enhances insulin sensitivity and increases the activity of glucokinase for better blood glucose control. When combined with chromium, biotin can improve glycemic control in diabetics.

Try Yung Kien Pollen, as it contains up to 200 types of nutrients, including VanadiumChromium and Biotin. It also contains vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10. It's natural and safe.


Eczema / psoriasis patients are advised to sleep by 11 pm. Likewise for people with liver related problems like blurry eye vision, to give liver the time to detox.

People with asthma / sinus allergy are advised to cut down on cold drinks. Don't let the aircon blow directly onto the body, reduce intake of spicy food, don't take shower too late and wipe the body completely dry after shower.


When you are taking your healthfood and supplements, eat at a dose you are comfortable with. You must have faith in the benefits and not feel troubled. Be happy when you take so you will see the benefits. What goes on in your mind influences your recovery rate and health condition.


Do you have to consume Lingzh for a lifetime?
For people who are suffering from diseases, take Lingzhi until the problem is fully addressed.
For people who want to maintain good health, it depends on their daily input v. output of toxins. There is also the uncontrollable ageing process. If you can practice a healthy lifestyle (getting sufficient sleep, proper dietary habits, regular exercise, managing your stress level and keeping a positive mindset), then your dependence on Lingzhi can be lesser. But if it's unlikely that you are able to do all that, then I suggest you still maintain a minimum dosage.


As the saying goes, "Eat food like medicine; Don't eat medicine like food."
In other words, don't rely on medicine to take care of your health.
Instead, eat natural food with lots of quality nutrients, and let good dietary habits maintain your health.
