"Diabetes" and a "Superfood"

So today . . . let's finish the topic of "diabetes" with a "superfood" that can help.

And that would be . . . "broccoli".

You see . . . "broccoli" is a great source of the "phytochemical" called "glucosinolate" which converts to "isothiocyanates" which has "anti-pancreatic" cancer properties.

And "broccoli" aids in healing and keeping the pancreas healthy so "insulin" is produced and used correctly and therefore, diabetes isn't an issue.

"Broccoli" also contains "sulforaphane" . . . an antioxidant which limits the "glucose" production in the liver in people with diabetes. It helps improve "glucose tolerance" and regulates "fasting blood glucose" . . . especially in diabetics.

And other foods would be . . .

Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel . . . due to being a great source of omega 3 fatty acid

Leafy greens, avocadoes, eggs, plain Greek yogurt and some nuts like almonds, walnut and pistachios

Another way to help the" pancreas" is by "triggering" it to "regenerate" itself through a type of fasting called "intermittent fasting". I did a Health tip a while back on this kind of fasting and its benefits.

But the best . . . hands down . . . is raw fresh organic "broccoli" . . . it's a win - win . . .

So if you have diabetes . . . get your green on today.
