People with type 2 diabetes can control it by maintaining certain levels of blood sugar. And it has been proven that eating a specific fruit helps with that, according to the British newspaper, “Express”.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition in which blood sugar levels continue to rise. And that blood sugar, or glucose, is the main sugar found in the blood. The body gets blood sugar from eating food, which is necessary for energy and nutrients. However, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels that supply vital organs.
Usually, the pancreas is tasked with secreting insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. If you have type 2 diabetes, the pancreas does not provide enough insulin to regulate blood sugar, or the cells do not absorb enough insulin that it produces.
As a result, people with diabetes are disproportionately at risk of high blood sugar levels. However, there are ways in which you can compensate for the decreased insulin production.
You can lower blood sugar levels by making healthy food decisions. Evidence suggests that some nutrients have blood sugar lowering properties.
Cranberries – the small blue berries native to northern Europe – have attracted researchers’ attention for this reason.
Research has shown that cranberry is a common herbal remedy used to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
One study reported that berry extract reduced blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes more effectively than a placebo. The extract provided the equivalent of 50 grams of fresh berries.
Another eight-week study showed that a diet rich in fresh berries increased insulin secretion in adults with metabolic syndrome, a group of conditions that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
Experts believe that berries, similar to some blood sugar-lowering drugs, prevent the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates in your gut.
Carbohydrates can cause a rise in blood sugar because they break down into glucose relatively quickly.
Animal studies indicate that the anthocyanins in berries may also stimulate insulin secretion.
