The Diabetes Cure Hiding in Your Pantry
When it comes to “good for you” foods, you can’t get much better than olive oil.
Research has shown that olive oil is good for your heart, it combats osteoporosis, and it battles depression. It even helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease and brain cancer.
And if that’s not enough, it can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes to boot.
Now the latest research has looked deeper into the olive oil/type 2 diabetes connection to find out what it is about this natural cure that makes it such a powerful blood sugar ally.
There’s a specific compound in olives called oleuropein that is responsible for many of the benefits associated with olive oil.
It has specifically been found to lower blood pressure, improve blood vessel function, prevent DNA damage, prevent cancer cells from spreading, reduce the production of fat cells, improve brain cell function, reduce inflammation, reduce oxidative damage… do I need to go on?
Oleuropein is basically involved in every major process that helps prevent aging and disease.
It also plays a specific role in olive oil’s anti-diabetic properties. Researchers have discovered that oleuropein helps the body secrete more insulin while also increasing the uptake of blood sugar – two actions that directly lower blood sugar levels.
Here’s why this is so important.
When you eat, your body turns food into sugar. Your pancreas then releases insulin, which acts as a type of “key” that unlocks your cells so that the sugar can get in and your body can use it for energy.
But when you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t produce enough insulin, which means it doesn’t have the “keys” necessary to let sugar into your cells. Because it has nowhere to go, the sugar ends up saying in your blood, leading to the high blood sugar levels that are the hallmark of this disease.
So by helping the body secrete more insulin, while simultaneously increasing the uptake of blood sugar by these cells, oleuropein is directly preventing the beginning steps involved in the development of type 2 diabetes… making it a powerful ally for prevention.
Researchers are saying that this knowledge paves the way for new supplements that could help fight type 2 diabetes. But why wait for them to develop supplements, when you likely have the REAL THING in your pantry right now?
It’s easy to get more olive oil in your diet. You can cook with it, use it for salad dressings, or use it as a substitute for butter.
Just be sure to choose your olive oil carefully. I recommend using California Estate Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
