Fruit – a very beneficial diabetic food

Diabetic foods – some useful fruits

A lot of diabetic desserts should include a portion of one of the healthy fruits.

All fresh fruits have some benefit, and not just for diabetics. Here a just a few fruits with their benefits:

Pomegranate

Some people call this a super-food which can protect the heart.
Scientists in Israel have shown that drinking a glass of the fruit’s juice can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. A quote from Professor Michael Aviram, who led the team: “Pomegranate juice contains the highest antioxidant capacity compared to other juices, red wine and green tea”.

Drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every day improves the function of blood vessels, reduces hardening of the arteries and improves heart health.

The round, leathery fruit is full of edible seeds nestled in tiny juice sacs. Brimming with vitamins A, C, E and iron, the pomegranate has been cultivated since pre-historic times. In the West, the fruit is still regarded as a novelty, but food writers like Rosemary Stark are keen to change this.

She said: “I find it has one of the finest sweet/sour balances of any fruit.
“Try sprinkling some over your breakfast muesli, or lunchtime hummus.”

Apple

This popular sub-acid fruit, one of the most valuable of all fruits, has been found beneficial in the treatment of diabetes because of its rich pectin content. Pectin is a natural therapeutic ingredient found in the inner portion of the rind and the pulp. It aids in detoxification of the body by supplying the galacturonic acid needed for the elimination of certain harmful substances. This food element reduces the body’s insulin requirements by approximately 35 percent.

The apple is also considered valuable in depression. The various chemical substances present in the fruit, such as Vitamin B1, phosphorous and potassium, help the synthesis of glutamic acid, which controls the wear and tear of nerve cell. This fruit acts as a very effective tonic and recharges the nerves with new energy and life.

Grapefruit

The grapefruit occupies a high place among citrus fruits because of its flavour, its appetizing properties and its refreshing qualities. Dr Riley, a well-known authority on nutrition, believes that it is a splendid food for diabetics and if this fruit were taken more liberally, there would be much less diabetes. She goes on to say that any person suffering from high blood sugar should take grapefruit three times a day. A person who does not have high blood sugar, but a tendency towards it, and wants to prevent it, should also use the fruit three times a day. Simultaneously, consumption of starches, sweets and fats should be reduced and diet made rich in fruits, vegetables and juices. Two weeks of this grapefruit rich diet will bring down sugar level in individuals not taking insulin. In those who take insulin regularly, it takes longer.

Also be on the lookout for diabetic deserts which include this fruit.

 

Jambul Fruit

The Jambul fruit, also known as rose apple, is grown all over India. It too possesses anti-diabetic properties. In the indigenous system of medicine this fruit is regarded as a specific remedy against diabetes because of its effect on the pancreas. The fruit, the seeds and the juice are beneficial in treatment of this disease. The jamboline’ contained in the seeds is believed to check the pathological conversion of starch into sugar in case of increased production of glucose. The seeds are dried and powdered. This powder mixed with water, taken three or four times daily reduces sugar in the urine and allays thirst.

In Ayurveda, the inner bark of the jambul tree is considered valuable in the treatment of diabetes. The bark is dried and burnt, to produce a white colored ash. This ash is pestled in the mortar, strained and bottled. The diabetes patients should be given about two grams of this ash in the morning on an empty stomach and two grams each in the afternoon and in the evening and hour after meals.

The seeds of the jambul fruits are considered beneficial in the treatment of excessive urination.
The powder of these seeds in doses of one gram each, in the morning and evening, is effective in controlling this condition.
