Fenugreek Seeds:  Studies suggest fenugreek seeds may have blood sugar-lowering properties due to their fiber content.

Flax Seeds: Rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and fiber, flax seeds may improve insulin sensitivity and help manage blood sugar levels.

Chia Seeds: High in fiber and containing alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), chia seeds may slow down digestion and potentially help regulate blood sugar levels.

Pumpkin Seeds:  These seeds are a good source of magnesium, which may play a role in blood sugar control.

Sesame Seeds: Packed with lignans and fiber, sesame seeds may contribute to better glycemic control and insulin sensitivity.

Hemp Seeds: While research is ongoing, hemp seeds contain protein and healthy fats that may be beneficial for blood sugar management.
