Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage. Type 2 diabetes doesn't just affect blood sugar and insulin secretion—it also can lead to a host of other problems including kidney damage, blood vessel thickening, nerve damage and pain. Depending on the type of treatment regimen you use to control your diabetes, there are some vitamins and minerals that may be beneficial for your condition.

Co-Enzyme Q10     
    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that’s found naturally in the body and helps convert food into energy. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body, and it is a powerful antioxidant. CoQ10 supplements may improve heart health and blood sugar and help manage high blood pressure in people with diabetes.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid    
    Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has been used as an antioxidant for the treatment of diabetes and HIV. It also has been used for cancer, liver ailments, and various other conditions. It has two important functions in our body. First, it serves as a coenzyme (i.e. facilitating the action of enzymes) in several metabolic pathways. Second, it is an important antioxidant.

    Inositol is a vitamin-like substance. It is found in many plants and animals. It can also be made in a laboratory. Inositol is used for diabetic nerve pain, panic disorder, high cholesterol, insomnia, cancer, depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, promoting hair growth, a skin disorder called psoriasis, and treating side effects of medical treatment with lithium.

Vitamin D    
    Since long this sunshine vitamin is known as crucial factor in maintaining bone health, immune system functioning, cardiovascular health and in cancer prevention. Researches have recently discovered that vitamin D may help in reducing insulin resistance among type 2 diabetic patients.

    Methylcobalamin, more commonly known as Vitamin B12, is found in meat, fish, and dairy foods, but can also be made in a laboratory. The vitamin is active in the spinal fluid, and is essential during peripheral nerve repair and regeneration. A double-blinded study by Yaqub found statistical improvement in symptoms and regression of signs of diabetic neuropathy with methylcobalamin, and no side effects were reported.

Chromium Picolinate    
    chromium probably helps insulin work by increasing the fluidity of the cell walls so that insulin can better attach to its receptors along the cell wall. In the appetite control centre of the brain, chromium helps blood sugar pass into the brain cells to bind with the receptors called glucostats, and thereby turn off hunger. Chromium also helps amino acids enter into the cells.

Coral calcium    
    Coral calcium is especially known for its ability to maintain the proper pH level in the blood, which is crucial to the prevention of disease. According to the coral calcium infomercial, taking coral calcium can cure up to 200 human diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes etc.

    Protein is one of the three main energy providing macronutrients, along with carbohydrate and fat. It helps the body to grow new tissue, therefore helping to build muscle and repair damage to the body
