oranges-diabetes-power-foodsMen’s Health Magazine had a recent article titled “12 Power Foods to Beat Diabetes” which listed the best foods to eat to control blood sugar and prevent complications from diabetes. After reviewing the list, we noticed that some of the foods recommended are great to combine with our taste-modifying miracle fruit berry products.

Citrus Fruit

Because diabetics often have levels of vitamin C lower than the recommended amount, eating vitamin C-rich foods like lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit provide a boost to their health. Citrus fruits also provide necessary dietary fiber, which can only be integrated into the diet through eating the fruit itself, as opposed to getting vitamin C in pill or tablet form.

Vinegar

Vinegar has been found to lower blood sugar levels for diabetics who consume the vinegar before meals. The difference in blood sugar between diabetics who consumed the vinegar before eating was 25% lower compared with those that did not. And the effect was even higher for people with prediabetes: their blood sugar was almost 50% lower than test subjects who did not use vinegar.
