The experts said that Covid-19 is a condition that gets worse with co-morbidities. Studies indicate that people suffering from diabetes suffer from worse outcomes, have a high risk for severity and long recovery time.

According to the doctors, when a person suffers from diabetes, it doesn't simply affect the body's blood glucose levels but also compromises the insulin production levels in the body. It can have lasting complications, especially on the immunity.

People with high blood sugar levels have less than normal blood flow, which makes it difficult for the body to harness nutrients, natural defences meant to protect the body against several infections and promote healing. Hence, it usually takes a little longer than usual for people with diabetes to recover as well.

Experts suggest that taking natural antioxidants may help keep sugar level in control along with other health benefits. The latest antioxidant which is produced for the first time in India is Gamma Oryzanol which is useful for controlling elevated sugar levels along with this it is also known to boost metabolic rate, maintaining cholesterol level and may help with weight loss.

Studies also indicated that a 300 mg dosage of Gamma oryzanol capsules is an appropriate dosage which not only help in diabetes management but also promote overall health, the doctors said.

Can this be taken by someone not having diabetes? Or blood sugar around 100mg/dl?
