Miracle of bitter leaf

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2017. Fasting reading as high as 356mg/dl. 2hours after food reading as high as 450mg/dl. I have struggled since then bringing it dowwith my diet and 500mg of metformin twice a day. I woke up one day to find

bitter leaf capsules

blood sugar reading

everything is now blurry around me and since then I’ve struggled with my sight. Couldn’t see
anything on my phone or computer without wearing some glasses.

July 2019, I started on 6 tablets of bitterleaf capsules everyday in addition to my metformin and about 2 weeks later, I woke up to a much clearer vision than I’d had in 2years. Now I do most things without my glasses and I can read the tiniest prints now without trouble. I have since reduced my dosage to 2 tablets of bitterleaf a day taken along with my metformin after food. When I exercise, I now get fasting readings as low as 88mg/dl, and without exercise, highest of 105mg/dl. I used to have lots of pains in my arms and legs in addition to hot flashes all around my body. All of those have disappeared! This is truly a miracle!
