Has any one on here every used Herbs and Spices to see if it will help the A1c ?
I have and I have used others to help, and I brought my A1c from 16 to 5,6 after using Herbs and Spices, like ,Thyme,Rosemary,Garlic ,Cloves,Cinnamon,Bay leaves,ginger,the most rare spice is saffron,Saffron is used throughout the Mediterranean in local dishes like French bouillabaisse, Spanish paella and Milanese risotto. Its spicy, pungent and bitter flavor, dark orange strands and sharp, penetrating odor makes saffron immediately recognizable. Although saffron is native to the Mediterranean, today it is primarily cultivated in Spain.
You can find most of these spices in the supermarket,saffron is easily purchased online.
But I have found that using more Herbs and Spices have really helped me with my A1c levels,
I just wanted to share with every one what I have been doing to help my diabetes.
Have a great Day.

Saffron is indeed a wonderful spice to use in soups, sauces and rice pilaf. However, as you will find, IT IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. Fortunately, only a little, very little is needed to add it's flavor to many dishes.

Beware of the cheaper Indian and Saffron from north Aftica, as they do not have nearly the flavor or affect on most dishes.
