Antioxidants and Glucose Response
There are so many health issues associated with the lack of glucose control in bodily systems. Some people with diabetes, or those who are overweight/obese, may have difficulty controlling their glucose levels or hyperglycemia. This can spiral and lead to even more health problems. A study published in Functional Foods in Health found that “Amla berry-, Grape seed- Rooibos tea- and Green tea- extracts as well as Propolis tincture were all strong glycemic modulators”. The conclusion is that these antioxidants did help to regulate the glucose response in the healthy test subjects. Further research will need to be done to see the effects of antioxidants on people with diabetes or who are overweight/obese. Until that research is complete, you may want to add a variety of antioxidants to your diet and/or supplement regimen.
