Have You Heard?
So you may have heard that green tea is great for diabetes prevention and management. Research indicates that green tea has been associated with helping to manage blood sugar levels, decrease fasting glucose and HgbA1c levels, and reduce fasting insulin levels. One explanation for this may be the antioxidant activity of polyphenols and polysaccharides in green tea, which are known to help manage blood pressure, decrease cholesterol, and help fight certain cancers.
