The fruit diabetics must eat

Many diabetics avoid fruit for fear of the natural sugar negatively affecting their blood sugar. However, new studies are showing that a modest intake of fruit may actually help fight diabetes. In fact, one new study shows that one berry in particular should be on every diabetic’s “must eat” list.

In the study, researchers from Warwick Medical School in the United Kingdom found that strawberries activate the protein Nrf2 in your body. Past studies have shown that this protein increases antioxidants and actively protects you from heart disease and diabetes. So anything that can activate it will help stop these diseases.

We’ve known for some time that Nrf2 reduces cholesterol, especially LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). But this new study found that it also counters increases in post-meal blood glucose. This is the first study to find this effect from strawberries.

Because strawberries do contain natural sugar, diabetics shouldn’t eat too many. These same researchers are now looking into how many strawberries offer the optimum health benefits without causing damage. They’re also looking at the best varieties of strawberries.

But I don’t think you need to wait for their results. Strawberries are ripe right now. So fell free to eat a few each day.

If you’re diabetic and you’re still concerned about the sugar, there’s an easy way to get organic strawberries and other fruits and veggies that can help fight the disease without the sugar concern. Simply mix two scoops of Advanced Greens Formula in a glass of water. Or you can do what I do and blend it with ice and a couple of ripe strawberries in some almond milk to make a wonderful smoothie. It tastes so good, my kids make their own smoothies with it almost every day. We try not to remind them that they’re drinking vegetables.
