A sweet fruit that lowers your blood sugar levels?

by , 31 October 2013

It's a tropical fruit we enjoy December to April and we love it for its sweetness and flavour. Now there's another reason to eat so much more of it. Mangos.

Research indicates eating mangos could lower your overall blood sugar levels.

Mangos may help reduce high blood sugar
 
Research presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology found if you eat mouth-watering mango every day, you may be well on your way to putting your blood sugar woes behind you for good!
 
According to the research, obese adults who ate half a mango per day for 12 weeks saw a significant reduction in their blood sugar levels.
 
Incorporating mango in your daily meals could help reduce body fat, control your blood sugar and ultimately lower the risk for developing metabolic syndrome which can lead to obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
 
What’s the secret behind this blood sugar-busting fruit?  Head researcher, Edralin Lucas, said mangos could reduce sugar levels because mangos are high in fibre, which can limit your body’s absorption of sugar. Plus, they’re packed with plant polyphenols, which may prevent the development of fat cells and keep the fat cells you have smaller.
 
Mangos are also high in vitamins A and C and other minerals and phytochemicals which have a positive effect on body fat, blood lipids and glucose. This means you could lose weight too!
 
Speak to your doctor about giving a 12 week programme of mangos a try.
 
You just might see your high blood sugar stabilise one delicious bite at a time.
