Breakthrough! Miracle Foods Stop Diabetes
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you or someone you love suffers from Type 2 diabetes, you already know that managing it can be a full-time job.
You spend your days pricking your finger, scanning food labels and taking risky drugs that zap your energy.
Fortunately, it looks like avoiding this devastating disease just got a lot easier.
Because Dutch researchers have found that a special type of nutrient (found in some of your favorite foods) can stop Type 2 diabetes in its tracks.
Carotenoids, the tiny pigments that give red, yellow and orange fruits and veggies their color, are the blood-sugar busters I’m talking about.
And chances are your doc has been telling you to eat more of them for years because they can help boost your eyesight and even fight cancer.
But it looks like carotenoids can help slash your risk of diabetes, too.
In a recent study, researchers from the University Medical Center Utrecht and the Dutch National Institute for Public Health analyzed the dietary habits and medical records of about 38,000 people.
After crunching the numbers, scientists found that folks who ate the most carotenoid-rich foods had a significantly lower risk of developing diabetes.
Even better, folks getting the most beta-carotene, a specific type of carotenoid, had the best results with a whopping 22 percent drop in diabetes risk.
Experts think beta-carotene and other carotenoids are so good at balancing your blood sugar because they reduce oxidative stress, one of the key drivers behind diabetes.
And the best part? Getting more carotenoids in your diet couldn’t be easier.
All you have to do is eat more brightly colored plants like carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupes — no nutrition label reading required.
But try to eat organic, as pesticide exposure can be a major risk factor for diabetes.
Or you can always take a beta-carotene supplement, which you can find at your local pharmacy.
