Ancient Health Elixir SLASHES Blood Sugar?!
When you have diabetes, you’re constantly told to watch what you eat.
But what you drink is just as important.
Many folks try to prevent blood sugar spikes by skipping sodas and latte Frappuccinos. And that’s a great start.
But there’s one beverage you can START drinking today that does more than prevent blood sugar spikes… it can actively lower your blood sugar levels.
Kombucha is a fermented black tea drink made from tea, sugar, bacteria, and yeast.
The folks in Asia have been drinking kombucha for thousands of years. And they’ve been reaping its MANY benefits, including:
- immune system support
- increased energy
- weight loss
- protection against cancer and heart disease
And because kombucha is fermented, it’s an excellent source of probiotics—the live microorganisms that are essential to gut (and whole body) health.
But there’s another important reason to drink this health elixir…
According to a recent study, drinking kombucha helps lower blood sugar levels in folks with type 2 diabetes.
For the study, volunteers with diabetes drank either a placebo or 8 ounces of kombucha daily for four weeks. Then, after a two-month rest period, the groups switched beverages.
There was no change in the volunteers’ blood sugar levels when they drank the placebo. But remarkably, when the participants drank the kombucha, their fasting blood glucose levels plummeted from an average of 164 milligrams per deciliter down to 116.
This puts blood sugar back into normal pre-meal range, which is 70-130 mg/dL.
Previous lab and animal studies showed that kombucha has blood-sugar-lowering effects. But this is the first human study confirming this effect.
Researchers are calling for a larger trial to confirm their results.
But with all the OTHER health benefits of kombucha, there’s no reason to wait. You can start reaping the rewards beginning TODAY.
