1 . Jamun Seeds: Powder of jamun seeds can be taken with water or buttermilk (chaach).
2 . Fenugreek (methi): methi seeds are taken with water 15-20 minutes before each meal. Methi has soluble fibers that slowdowns the digestion and absorption of glucose.

4 . Cinnamon (Dalchini): It helps in improving sugar as well as cholesterol level. Its powder is taken with water.
5 . Amla: concentrated amla juice along with bitter ground juice is taken. It helps in releasing more insulin.
6 . Isabgol: it is taken before meals with a glass of water. It has high amount of fibers, thus slowing down digestion and absorption of sugar.
