Walnut Consumption Is Associated with Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in Women

Walnut Consumption Is Associated with Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in Women | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

An article in the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Nutraceutical & Functional Foods Newsletter states that a study published in the Journal of Nutrition shows that eating walnuts two or three times a week may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by almost a quarter.

 

Scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health tracked 137,893 female nurses, ages 35–77, over a 10-year period to see how many developed type 2 diabetes. Their dietary habits were closely monitored, including details on how often they ate nuts, particularly walnuts.

 

After allowing for body fat and weight, the researchers found eating walnuts one to three times a month curbed the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 4%, once a week by 13%, and at least twice a week by 24%. In the study, 28 g totaled one serving. The researchers concluded: “These results suggest higher walnut consumption is associated with a significantly lower risk of type 2 diabetes in women.”

First Published Resveratrol Human Clinical Trial for Glucose Management

Scientists found that:

 After taking 1, 1.5 and 2 grams of resveratrol daily over 4 weeks :

 

1.Insulin sensitivity was increased--for some, may mean diet and exercise, and resveratrol might be sufficient to healthy blood sugar levels.

2.Spikes of blood sugar experienced by diabetics after a meal were greatly reduced.

 

Together, results show promise as a new therapeutic strategy in Diabetes management and control.
