Pomegranate and diabetes: no restraint.
Do you suffer from diabetes but do not want to give up the exceptional properties of the pomegranate and its benefits? Then you may be interested in this article where we are going to talk about the compatibility of this super fruit with a diet aimed at controlling the level of sugar in the blood.
The pomegranate contains only natural sugar useful for the control of glucose in the blood and those suffering from diabetes can consume it daily, taking advantage of all its properties and health benefits.
First of all, however, we recommend that you consult your doctor because each case is different and only he can advise you on the amount you can consume.
There are various scientific studies conducted over the last decade that have linked pomegranate and its juice as an aid to preventing type 2 diabetes.
Let's see together what are the properties of the pomegranate that make it so special for those suffering from diabetes:
- Antioxidant action: do you know what cellular oxidation is? Unfortunately it is a process of progressive aging of our cells caused by free radicals that are produced during the chemical reactions that take place in every cell and that require energy and oxygen.There is no cure for blocking this process but it is possible to slow it down and counter it through the consumption of antioxidant foods. Pomegranate contains three times more antioxidants than green tea and dyed wine. Polyphenols in fact contained in large quantities in pomegranate are one of the most powerful natural antioxidants that help to counteract cellular oxidation and at the same time prevent and control type 2 diabetes. But how? Polyphenols act on glycemia through different mechanisms and in particular through the inhibition of glucose uptake through the intestine.
- Reduction of blood glucose levels: the sweet taste of pomegranate and its juice can scare those who have to follow a hypoglycemic diet. But while most of the fruit contains sugars in free form, the pomegranate contains only sugars combined with antioxidants that therefore play an action of lowering the level of glucose in the blood.
- Efficient use of insulin: the most known function of insulin is to regulate blood glucose levels by reducing glycemia by activating different metabolic and cellular processes. The 100% squeezed pomegranate juice increases the function of the cells that produce insulin. This means that this super fruit helps avoid insulin resistance and causes cells to use it efficiently.
Furthermore, one of the consequences of diabetes is that it causes illness that hardens or obstructs the arteries. Consuming pomegranate juice helps to counteract this disease and reduce bad blood cholesterol (LDL), the main cause of cardiovascular diseases.
Drinking 100% squeezed pomegranate juice without added sugar is a simple gesture that helps you take care of your body and lead a lifestyle in harmony with yourself.
