Benefits of drinking tea for Diabetes Prevention

Tea has a long list of benefits and it continues to grow, but we seldom realize the good effects of having tea. Being masked behind our addiction to tea is also a serious growing issue in the country, Diabetes. India is the world Capital of Diabetes and the population affected with Diabetes is only growing. But we just might have the right solution coming along in our own land. Time and again people have been consuming tea for centuries. It is the recipe that has been stable since time began. Tea is the second most popular drink in the world, second only to water. The benefits of drinking tea may account for some of the chronic tea drinkers like preventing cancer, sharper minds. But did you know that tea can prevent diabetes also? People with Diabetes have problems digesting and metabolizing sugars, which are otherwise processed by Insulin. But with type 2 Diabetes, the body isn’t as sensitive with sugar, so glucose levels rise up. With a biochemical reaction, tea (especially green tea), sensitizes cells to metabolize sugar more effectively. Polyphenols are anti-oxidants, that are present in tea, that help reduce oxidative stress and cause widening of the arteries (vasodilation). This in turn, decreases BP, prevents clotting, and reduces cholesterol. Green teas contain more polyphenols than black teas and hence are better for people with Diabetes. Besides, some varieties of teas contain caffeine in greater quantities, which is less helpful, but green tea has the right balance and hence is quite effective in its purpose than black or other fermented teas.

Of course now we know the benefits of tea, but other than tea, a number of other foods also which are high in polyphenols like berries (such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries), grapes, lemons, kiwis, pomegranates and apples. Garlic, onions, broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, and eggplant are also good sources. Also red wine contains anti-oxidants too, polyphenol such as resveratol is common supplement, that is naturally present in highest quantities in Bordeaux wine. Another good source is cocoa, which contains anti-oxidants that prevent your body from rusting. For those of you who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, try beans such as kidney beans or black beans, red beans to enrich your diet and stay healthy, stay fit!

So next time someone points you out for being so addicted to tea, share this article and get away without Diabetes. But if you have diabetes, it is better to consult a doctor to get a proper advice if tea is good for you. You can do that on
