Blueberries Show Anti-Diabetic Potential

A new study shows that bioactive ingredients from blueberries increase sensitivity to insulin, and may reduce the risk of diabetes.

Study participants who consumed a blueberry smoothie daily for six weeks experienced a 22 percent change in insulin sensitivity.

NutraIngredients reports:

“Consumer interest in blueberries and the compounds they contain has increased in recent years, following results from studies reporting a wide range of health benefits, most notably for brain health and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s. The beneficial effects of the blueberries are thought to be linked to their flavonoid content -- in particular anthocyanins and flavanols.”
