Fact Check: Berries & Diabetes

By Beliteweight @BeLiteWeight

Fact Check: Berries & Diabetes Summer is berry season! Intuition may tell you that berries are high in sugar and therefore provide detrimental side effects for those suffering from diabetes but this could not be farther from the truth. Berries are one of the worlds superfoods and when supplemented properly can actually fight the symptoms of diabetes. Here are a few reasons why:

High Fiber Balances Carbohydrates

High amounts of fiber counters the negative effects of too many carbohydrates! The high fiber content in berries causes the body to become full fairly quickly and limits the total amount of intake desired. It would be very hard to force your body to eat too many berries!

The Glycemic Index is a measurement of how powerfully various foods manipulate the bodies blood sugar levels. This is very important for diabetics because foods with too high of GI cause your bodies blood sugar to spike. Strawberries have the lowest GI of all the berries!

Improves Insulin Sensitivity & Glucose Efficiency

Blueberries have been shown to improve sensitivity to insulin and the management of blood sugar. This allows the body to metabolize high-fat diets causing it to burn excess fat storages which improves weight loss as well!

Powerful Antioxidants Fight Free Radicals

Antioxidants are nutrition's answer to the process of oxidation and the harmful effects that free radicals have on our bodies cells. Dark berries such as blueberries and blackberries are some of the most antioxidant dense foods on the planet! This translates to an efficiently functioning body with lower rates of all types of disease!
