Tropical fruit blasts down high blood sugar in weeks
Scientists have stumbled upon something sharp and metallic that you can use daily to get your stubborn high blood sugar under control.
And here’s the best part — it’s not an insulin needle. It’s a fork!
A researcher from Oklahoma State University has found that if you use that fork to lift some mouth-watering mango into your mouth every day, you may be well on your way to putting your blood sugar woes behind you for good!
Sounds good? Here’s what you need to know.
According to the research, which was just presented at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, obese adults who ate just half a mango a day saw their high blood sugar fall like a house of cards in a hurricane after just 12 weeks!
That’s right, friend! Just three months of mango was all it took for research subjects to start getting their high blood sugar — a problem that had been plaguing them for years — under control.
And guess what else? These research subjects didn’t lose weight, spend hours at the gym, or change their body composition one bit — they just ate one serving of delicious mango every single day.
What’s the secret behind this blood sugar-busting fruit? Mangos are high in fiber, which can limit your body’s absorption of sugar. Plus, they’re jam-packed with plant polyphenols, which may prevent the development of fat cells — and keep the fat cells you have smaller.
(Long time e-Tips readers probably won’t be too surprised by these findings since all the way back in 2010 we revealed that polyphenol-rich seaweed also had the power to reduce both blood sugars and weight. If you missed that important story, click here to catch up.)
We’ve been singing the praises of mangos for so long, that we’re thinking of starting a band — Mango & the Marvelettes.
OK, we’re still working on that. But if you’ve been reading for a while, you know that mangos may also be a powerful tool for helping to prevent cancer.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure our Creator didn’t want us to spend our golden years as pin cushions. If you’re tired of those constant finger pricks and insulin injections it takes to get your blood sugar under control, speak to your doctor about giving 12 weeks of mangos a try.
You just might see your high blood sugar drop like a stone, one delicious bite at a time. And if you’re looking for other safe, natural ways to support healthy blood sugar, check out our online archives!
