Superfoods might help prevent patients with Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects about 4 million people all over the UK. Out of this, 90 percent of the cases come from patients suffering from Type-2 diabetes. This condition is actually caused by our pancreas when it stops producing enough amounts of the hormone named insulin. It can also be the result of the body being unresponsive to insulin.

However, making some minor changes in the overall diet and lifestyle can bring down the chances of anyone developing diabetes. As stated by the latest report, one can eventually lower down the risk of being affected from this disease by consuming berries each day with the diet.

Berries have been known to possess surplus health benefits which include diabetes control as well. They house compounds such as anthocyanins that aid in improvement of insulin sensitivity. Adding berries to your breakfast on a regular basis can easily turn any unhealthy meal into less harmful one, if not completely healthy.

There is a list of foods that actually provide surplus benefits in terms of health for the people suffering from diabetes. These foods are terms as the “Diabetes Superfoods”. Berries add fibre, Vitamin C, and many other nutritional elements to the diet while being stripped of unwanted carbohydrates.
