Saumya Shree, food specialist, BiteClub.in, a Gurgaon-based chef-designed virtual marketplace for home-styled meals, has shared some food items that can ensure an extra edge against diabetes and its complications.
Apple cider vinegar:
Apple cider vinegar has been creating positive ripples in the health food circles for a long time. The acetic acid in vinegar trims down certain enzymes in the stomach.
Nuts are enriched with tocotrienols and hence, eating them regularly can lower the rates of heart disease caused by diabetes.
Fenugreek is yet another spice which helps in lowering blood sugar levels in people with both type one two diabetes as well as those with pre-diabetes. The fibre in fenugreek seeds is effective in slowing down the digestion of carbohydrates and one can either take it as a pill, as a tea or in a variety of dishes.
It is effective in dropping blood sugar levels and reducing the risk for developing type 2 diabetes. It has also been discovered that this spice had the power to reduce increasing blood glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides and bad LDL cholesterol while raising the good HDL cholesterol. Therefore, it is necessary to consult the doctor before starting any supplement or eating plan.
