Add cinnamon to your cereal or dessert. It seems antioxidants in cinnamon, cloves and allspice may prevent the formation of bad high blood sugar compounds that can lead to diabetes and related problems, such as heart disease.
Herbs such as sage, tarragon and rosemary have a similar effect. Of course, the real keys to blood sugar control are eating healthily, exercising and keeping your weight down, but small tweaks can support your other efforts.
