Drink some green tea in the afternoon. You'll find that green tea works better than ALA or Chromium combined in dopping blood sugar. I never saw much hypoglycemic effect from ALA nor Chromium, supposedly insulin mimetics. The effect is huge... (more)

I'm trying to find a CLA supplement that is based on vaccenic or rumenic acid, the more beneficial forms of CLA. This would be in contrast to all of the CLA supplements I've found, which come from some soy extract.
