Top 21 Superfoods for Diabetics

9

Different foods have different nutrients in them that are associated with different health benefits. Green veggies are especially known for their several advantages. Example of these foods includes Swiss chard, spinach, broccoli and kale.

In addition to nutrient content, Glycemic Index (GI) of foods can also determine their health benefits. Foods with low GI such as 55 or less are best for diabetic patients.

Here in this article I will share the list of all those foods which are not just nutritious but also have low GI.

1. Carrots

Both raw and cooked carrots are rich in Vitamin A that work best for vision and immune system. Diabetics can get maximum benefits from this vegetable. According to a research study conducted in Stanford University School of Medicine, carrots helped in preventing type II diabetes.

It is advisable to consume either one glass of carrot juice or 4-5 carrots on daily basis.
