Cinnamon

Chinese cinnamon and Indonesian cinnamon are cinnamon varieties that have the best effect on diabetes symptoms. There have been many studies that have shown that this familiar spice is able to slow down gastric emptying and lower glucose levels after eating.

Cinnamon also lowers glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes, whose sugar levels are poorly controlled.
Eating cinnamon helps lower insulin and blood pressure.
This is absolutely safe for diabetics. The optimal dose is 1-2 g per day.

Green tea

Green tea contains a safe and effective antioxidant. It reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. It was shown that when drinking green tea in patients with type 2 diabetes:

  • glucose tolerance improves;
  • the production of sugar in the blood is reduced;
  • excessive secretion is reduced.

It has also been established that green tea has an effective anti-angiogenesis factor. In simple words – it reduces the problematic proliferation of blood vessels. In turn, this has a significant impact on the prevention of diabetic retinopathy. In addition, green tea promotes fat oxidation and thermogenesis, and it can also provide antioxidant protection for the pancreas and fatty liver.

The optimal portion of green tea is considered to be 1-2 glasses per day. Brew tea and drink … like tea.

Blueberries

In the treatment of diabetes, both blueberries and its leaves are used. This plant contains a compound called anthocyanosides that can provide protection against retinal damage and lower blood glucose. Blueberries regulate blood sugar levels so effectively that it should be carefully taken in combination with diabetic drugs so as not to lower the glucose level too much.
