Discover even more red-colored foods that can help lower blood sugar.
1) Rhubarb is known for its dark green leaves and bright pink to red stalks, and is rich in VITAMIN K, an antioxidant that has been shown to aid blood pressure by working to prevent mineralization in the arteries. A 2018 Taiwanese study even found that rhubarb stem extract showed a positive effect on the fasting blood sugar of diabetic patients.
2) Dragon fruits actually grow from a cactus plant, and they are low glycemic but high in Vitamin C, which has been shown to aid arterial health and may work to lower post-meal blood sugar. A 2017 study connected the consumption of dragon fruit to better glycemic control. The study further suggested that regular consumption of dragon fruit may help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
3) According to the American Diabetes Association, drinking certain alcoholic beverages, especially red wine, has been shown to lower blood sugar levels for up to 24 hours. Antioxidant polyphenols within red wine have been found to aid post-meal glucose control and insulin sensitivity, by inhibiting glucose absorption in the intestines.
4) A 2018 study showed that the consumption of red chili peppers, due to their spicy bioactive compound CAPSAICIN, can help to better manage metabolic syndrome and its related conditions, including diabetes. Red chili peppers also contain the carotenoid pigment CAPSANTHIN, which provides anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-diabetic activities.
5) Cranberries supply antioxidant POLYPHENOLS, which can improve your insulin sensitivity, and they have been shown to help lower your fasting glucose levels. They also contain beneficial FLAVONOIDS, which help to stimulate glucose metabolism. This aids your body in breaking down glucose more efficiently.
Thank you.Appreciate you.
Great video and topic.
You need to bring back the other guy, this guys voice is very annoying!!!!!
Today only they said guideline for consuming alcohol is 2 drinks a WEEK!
Judd is still here. We have always had a team and Jack has always been part of the team since the very beginning but just didn’t voice any of the videos. So now he’s going to be doing some of them also.
Both Jack and Judd have contributed equally to Diabetes Smarts right from the very beginning. Judd sometimes has to go on vacation, or is so busy doing research for the next video and needs to keep focus on that, so it actually is a lot more convenient to allow Jack to also voice some of the videos too. Several of the videos Judd has voiced were researched and written by Jack, so it’s not entirely unusual that Jack has decided to voice some of these also now. Judd had requested we have someone else to help the workload in that regard, so this made the most sense.
