Miracle Foods Help Diabetics LIVE LONGER

Like I’ve said before, my gold standard for whether or not a treatment works is whether or not it can help you live longer. 

Using this simple metric means that lots of common drugs like statins and aspirin – just don’t measure up. 

But according to new research, there’s a dead-simple and delicious way to extend your life. 

In fact, it can lower your risk of death from any cause… and your risk of dying from heart disease…. even if you already have type 2 diabetes. 

Diet and diabetes go hand in hand. 

What you eat (or don’t eat) will influence factors like your blood sugar levels, inflammation, and your risk for complications. 

But it turns out that adding more of a certain type of nutrient can actually help you live longer. 

I’m talking about polyunsaturated fatty acids or PUFAs.  

PUFAs are broken down into two classes of fats that you hear me talk about all the time: omega-3s and omega-6s. And you can get them from foods like salmon, tuna, herring, flaxseed, and walnuts 

For this study published in The BMJ, researchers looked at the health records of over 11,000 type 2 diabetics who were involved in the Nurse’s Health Study or the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.  

They found that the people in the highest quartile of PUFA intake had a 26% lower risk of dying from any cause whatsoever, and a 39% lower risk of dying from heart disease. 

These benefits remained even after they took into account factors like age, gender, and family history. 

Breaking the results down even further, they found those in the highest quartile of marine PUFA intake had a 29% lower risk of all-cause mortality, and a 31% risk of cardiovascular mortality. 

While those who got most of their PUFA from plants (linolenic acid) experienced a 19% reduction in all-cause mortality, but no reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. 

This is yet one more reason to make sure you’re getting a couple of servings of salmon every week. I know I am!
