  1. One of the best natural supplements to help control type 2 diabetes is Costus Pictus (you can read about it on Google). The leaves of the plant have the ability to help control and normalize blood sugar levels. Research has shown that the plant extract also contains the same properties and can be consumed in a powdered form as well. There are numerous growers of the plant in India, however according to my knowledge, the only people that have a certified product with a food licence to sell the powder are a farm based in Tamil Nadu.
