Welcome to my channel , I am Dr Navneet Goyal and
in this video I shall be discussing about the best 5 fruits for the Diabetics.
Ever wondered, why there has been an upsurge on Google searches about what fruits and foods are beneficial for a Diabetic patient? Don’t ever be misled by anyone saying that Diabetes can be completely cured! No, it cannot be!!! But, yes, it can surely be controlled!! Diabetes is a slow, but sure shot killer!
The only hope to survive with Diabetes, is to keep a vigilance over your Diabetic diet plan.
So, if you have Diabetes, follow these 5 Diabetic friendly fruits to improve your sugar control and Antioxidant levels.
You must be aware of the fact, that not all fruits are advised for the Diabetes patients, because almost all fruits have high fruit sugar content, which is fructose. Even a piece of mango can shoot up the blood sugar to a very high level. That’s why it is essential to know what fruits are actually do more good than harm to a Diabetic patient. Having a Diabetes doesn’t mean you should avoid all carbohydrates, but you should definitely keep a watch your portion sizes.
Needless to explain the well known health benefits of berries. Loaded withAnti-oxidants, they help you to fight against oxidative stress, thus protecting you from various cancers and toxic metabolites. Blue berries have considerable amount of collagen building nutrient, that prevents the stiffening of the joints in a Diabetic patient, and are also known as Anti-aging berries.
In one study it was claimed that, Strawberries actually help in killing liver cancer cells too. Blackberries has the potential to keep a good check on the cholesterol levels of a Diabetic patient.
There is a strong point why I am so much in a favor of this special fruit for the Diabetics! It’s sweet, it’s loaded with vitamins and finally despite of it’s sweet taste, it doesn’t shoot up the glucose levels, unlike other carbohydrate rich fruits. Dried apricots are even better because, they are readily available as an instant food for the diabetic patients. It has a good quantity of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, Manganese and Fiber, which keeps you full and checks instant rise of your post-prandial blood sugar levels.
Nutritional value as equal to the Apricots, the peaches helps to enhance your metabolism and lose weight. I am against the canned / preserved peaches, as the added sugar content is huge. Apart from Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium and Fiber, peaches are rich in Iron. This helps to fight against anemia in the Diabetic patients.
Again, its the same reason why pears are good for the diabetic patients. Sweet in taste, but with low Glycemic Index, these fruits are good source of many vitamins and fiber. There is no other better reason, why Diabetic patients shouldn’t consume pears.
Apples are the best fruits in the whole world. They are packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins, fiber, and so much of good stuff, that you’d not like to miss, if you’re really serious about your Diabetes. Apples are also known to prevent the development of neural problems like, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, etc. Though bananas are also excellent fruits, but they have a higher Glycemic Index as compared to the above fruits.
Eating right is the only way to stay healthy for the diabetic patients. Remember to check your sugar weekly, walk daily and eat right! This is the best way to survive the Diabetes complications. Thank you for visiting, eat healthy and stay fit! Best wishes..!
