Today I’m going quickly list the 7 best foods that are clinically proven to lower your blood sugar… And help avoid or even reverse your diabetes.
As a side benefit, you’ll also lose weight, have more energy, improve your memory and reduce wrinkles.
1 – Vegetables
There are lots of different diet — low carbs, high fat, vegetarian, mediterranean, etc. And, they all work to a certain degree.
However, there is one thing all of them have in common and that’s for you to eat vegetables. And the best ones are the green ones.
Spinach, Broccoli, kale and other greens are a good source of antioxidants, vitamins, polyphenols and other ingredients which all help reduce inflammation, blood pressure and sugar levels.1
Eat as much as you want. Steaming is great. But don’t put any dressing on them. A little bit of sea salt, lemon and other spices is perfect.
2 – Fatty Fish
Fish is one of the healthiest foods on the planet – especially the fatty ones because they are low in heavy metals and high in essential omega-3-fatty acids. They’re also a great source of protein.
Now, they’re good for your heart and blood sugar because they reduce inflammation and blood sugar – even when eaten with carbs such as white rice.2-5
The best fish are wild caught salmon, sardines, herring, anchovies and mackerel.
3 – Nuts
Raw nuts taste great and are good for you. They’re high in fiber, very low in carbs and contain healthy, essential fats.6-8
All of this helps reduce inflammation and lower blood sugar, A1C and Cholesterol levels.
The best are walnuts, almonds, Hazelnuts, Pistachios and macadamia.
Avoid peanuts and Cashews, since they aren’t nuts. They’re legumes and cause allergies for most people, especially peanuts
Eat them raw, because roasting and cooking them changes the fat structure.
And make sure you don’t eat too much, since they are very dense in calories.
4 – Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Extra-virgin olive oil is extremely beneficial for heart health and blood sugar.
It contains oleic acid… This is a type of monounsaturated fat that has been shown to improve triglycerides and HDL, which are often at unhealthy levels in type 2 diabetes.
It also increase the fullness hormone, GLP-1.9 This reduces your cravings, especially for sugars.
Olive oils also contains antioxidants called polyphenols, which reduce inflammation, protects your heart and blood vessels — two areas people with high blood sugar are weak in.
Make sure you purchase a very reputable source, because most olive oil is mixed with other junky oils. Thus, don’t get anything found at your local supermarket. The cheap stuff is filled with junk.
5 – Seeds
Raw seeds such as flax, sunflower, pumpkin, hemp and sesame seeds have lots of health benefits. They’re very high in fiber and full of amazing minerals and vitamins.
They’re proven to help:
- Decrease your risk for heart disease 10
- Improve your blood sugar levels 11
- Reduce your A1C levels 11
- Improve blood flow and circulation 12
6 – Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and lower fasting blood sugar levels. It may also reduce blood sugar response by as much as 20% when consumed with meals containing carbs. 13-15
7 – Berries
Most people are told not to have sugar, especially fructose which is the sugar found in fruit. To a certain degree, this is correct.
I don’t think you should ever have fruit juice — it’s too concentrated.
But fruit is really made up mostly water and fiber. Plus, they have a low glycemic index and thus, don’t raise your blood sugar very much.
However, berries are one of the healthiest not only because they’re low in calories, but also because of the antioxidants their skins contain from ripening in the sun.
Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are one of the best. I also like sour cherries, even though it’s not a berry.
These fruits are clinically shown to lower blood sugar, especially after a meal – even for those with diabetes.16-17
…. So those are the 7 foods clinically proven to lower your blood sugar.
However, there’s one category even more powerful…
Herbs, Plants & Extracts
Even though today’s topic is about food… there are specific plants, herbs, spices and extracts which can have dramatically positive effects on your blood sugar — much more than food.
And if you want the truth, plants and herbs are food and probably one the most important categories of food.
And specific plants, herbs and extracts can have drug-like results, but without any of the negative side-effects.
Which, shouldn’t be surprising because most drugs, well over 50%, are actually based on plants and herbs found in nature.
The pharmaceutical companies change the original structure, patent them and make billions. Unfortunately, in the process of changing the natural structure, they also create side-effects.
Anyway, my favorite are Bitter Melon, Gymnema Sylvestre, Fenugreek, Banaba Leaf and Cinnamon Extract.18-21
When these herbs are combined together, along with some specific vitamins and minerals, scientific research has shown over and over again that they can create healthy blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity and lower A1C levels.
So there you have it. If you want to lower your blood sugar, prevent and reverse diabetes and live a healthier life, eat
- Green vegetables
- Fatty fish
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Raw Nuts
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- And for faster results, take specific herbal extracts.
