Red isn’t just the color of passion, it’s also the color of enhanced blood sugar control!
1) While watermelon has a high glycemic index rating, it actually has an extremely low glycemic load! Watermelon is, naturally, loaded with water, plus diabetes-fighting polyphenol antioxidants, like beta-carotene, and amino acids which can reduce insulin resistance.
2) Acai berries supply ellagic acid, which fights free radical damage, plus oleic acid and linoleic acid, which can help lower “bad” cholesterol while increasing “good” cholesterol. They also provide heart-healthy, diabetes-fighting monounsaturated fats.
3) Research has shown that eating apples can slow gastric emptying, and apple peels supply the powerful fiber pectin, which also works to slow digestion. And, of course, apples are an excellent source of vitamin C, which has been shown to aid post-meal glucose regulation.
4) Pomegranate seeds contain a wealth of anti-diabetes nutrients, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. They also give you over 30% of the recommended daily intake for vitamin C, and they help your body produce urolithin A, which improves insulin sensitivity.
5) Red red raspberries aren’t just delicious, they have an excellent carb-to-fiber ratio, and they have been reported to contain possibly the highest levels of antioxidants of any fruit. And, naturally, raspberries give you a ton of diabetes-fighting nutrients, including copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, plus B vitamins, and vitamins E and K. A cup of raspberries also contains 50% of the recommended daily intake for glucose-lowering vitamin C.
