These are the three best drinks for healthy blood sugar levels
Living with diabetes means you have to know the amount of carbohydrates everything you eat and drinks contains, and how they may affect your blood sugar levels.

When it comes to the best drinks for a diabetic diet, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends zero-calorie or low-calorie drinks to prevent blood sugar spikes.

Read on for three examples of these drinks, which will help you manage your diabetes symptoms, avoid unpleasant side effects and maintain a healthy weight…

Three drinks that will keep your blood sugar levels steady

#1: Water
When it comes to staying hydrated, water is your number-one choice. That’s because drinking H2O won’t raise your blood sugar levels. Instead, it will hydrate your whole body, which promotes healthy blood sugar levels. Plus, drinking enough water helps your body eliminate excess glucose (as well as toxins) through urine. Aim to drink eight to 10 glasses of water per day. You can spruce up plain water by adding slices of lemon, lime or orange, sprigs of mint, basil or lemon balm, or fresh blueberries or raspberries.

Blood sugar worries? 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!
 
When this research first crossed my desk I couldn’t believe it!
 
The latest blood sugar science shows that your body’s own safety mechanism is why your current blood sugar solution may be selling you short.
 
In fact, this research confirms that targeting only your body’s natural insulin and your pancreas to conquer blood sugar is like trying to douse a forest fire with a glass of water.
 
But this research has also led to some really exciting news for you—a breakthrough in blood sugar science that no one saw coming.
 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!

#2: Green tea
It’s well-established that green tea has a remarkably positive effect on your overall health. It can also help reduce your blood sugar, blood pressure and LDL cholesterol levels. Some studies have even suggested that drinking up to six cups of this delicious brew a day can cut your risk of type diabetes. However, more research is needed on this. Just make sure that you avoid using sweetener in your tea.
 
#3: Coffee
One study published in 2012 found that drinking java might help lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that this benefit was even more prominent for people who drank two to three cups per day. The same held true for those who drank four or more cups per day. If you avoid caffeine because it makes you feel jittery, good news: The study confirmed that caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees were equally beneficial. As with your tea, make sure that you don’t add sweetener to your coffee.
 
There you have it – three of the best drinks for your blood sugar levels.
