Ever since we were kids, parents and grandparents told us to eat our vegetables because they are the healthiest. Recent research has shown that type 2 diabetes can indeed be prevented if we have a healthy diet.
Experts have come up to the conclusion that reducing animal protein from our diet can significantly decrease the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and other health conditions.
After reviewing the diets of 200,727 participants in a study, researchers discovered that diets based on coffee, tea, nuts, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains were linked to a great decrease in type diabetes risk.
Furthermore, another team of scientists discovered that diets low in refined grains, sugar-sweetened beverages, processed meat, and rich in vegetables and fruits were much healthier than the opposite diets.
In addition to this, experts advise people to avoid drinking soda because just one can of this sugar-sweetened juice per day increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 22 percent.
It is also worth mentioning that artificial sweeteners are not a good idea as well because artificial sodas were associated with severe health conditions by scientists. Plus, experts recommend people to avoid relying on any sugary beverages and drinks, as they are far from being healthy.
Moreover, scientist discovered that milk thistle would be a good choice in a healthy diet. Also, researchers have previously found that milk thistle helps the liver. Plus, the extract from it is very useful in reducing blood sugar levels, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.
Nevertheless, just a few of the medicinal benefits from the milk thistle can be extracted in water, so tea is not your best bet if you want to drink a healthy beverage. Still, people can find in pharmacies tincture based on milk thistle or glycerin-extracts and capsules which are recommended for diabetics.
Last but not least, nettles were discovered to be very useful in dealing with various health issues related to type 2 diabetes, such as improving memory and cognition, reducing the symptom of excessive thirst, regulating insulin levels, improving body weight, lessen the pain of neuropathy, and reducing the high blood sugar levels.
Experts recommend people to use nettles in stews, soups, and tea. Plus, nettle tincture is available in pharmacies as well. In other words, many natural remedies can help us prevent and tackle type 2 diabetes.
