Discover even more red-colored foods that can help lower blood sugar.
1) Rhubarb is known for its dark green leaves and bright pink to red stalks, and is rich in VITAMIN K, an antioxidant that has been shown to aid blood pressure by working to prevent mineralization in the arteries. A 2018 Taiwanese study even found that rhubarb stem extract showed a positive effect on the fasting blood sugar of diabetic patients.
2) Dragon fruits actually grow from a cactus plant, and they are low glycemic but high in Vitamin C, which has been shown to aid arterial health and may work to lower post-meal blood sugar. A 2017 study connected the consumption of dragon fruit to better glycemic control. The study further suggested that regular consumption of dragon fruit may help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
3) According to the American Diabetes Association, drinking certain alcoholic beverages, especially red wine, has been shown to lower blood sugar levels for up to 24 hours. Antioxidant polyphenols within red wine have been found to aid post-meal glucose control and insulin sensitivity, by inhibiting glucose absorption in the intestines.
4) A 2018 study showed that the consumption of red chili peppers, due to their spicy bioactive compound CAPSAICIN, can help to better manage metabolic syndrome and its related conditions, including diabetes. Red chili peppers also contain the carotenoid pigment CAPSANTHIN, which provides anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-diabetic activities.
5) Cranberries supply antioxidant POLYPHENOLS, which can improve your insulin sensitivity, and they have been shown to help lower your fasting glucose levels. They also contain beneficial FLAVONOIDS, which help to stimulate glucose metabolism. This aids your body in breaking down glucose more efficiently.
