Blueberry ginger diabetes fighter smoothie

This blueberry ginger diabetes fighter smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients that keep blood sugar under control and fight oxidative stress.

According to the American Diabetes Association:

Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.

If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.

Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this blueberry ginger diabetes fighter smoothie.

Blueberries:
They are a low glycemic index fruit, which means it doesn’t place a high load on blood sugar. Blueberries contain dietary fiber, which is also important for blood sugar regulation.

Ginger:
According to an Iranian study that we just reported on yesterday, ginger is a potent diabetes fighter. It controls blood sugar, but also helps with insulin resistance and oxidative stress, which are major risk factors for diabetes.

1 cup of filtered water
1 cup of blueberries
