3 REASONS WHY NUTS MIGHT BE GOOD FOR DIABETES

This morning i bought
groundnuts and someone that is
diabetics asked me to give her,
so i did. I now decided to ask
from google whether eating
groundnut is good for diabetic.
Though, the answer i found do
not mention groundnut
specifically but it says the overall
effects of nuts as a whole on
diabetes and other sickness.

The article says diabetics can eat
any kind of
nuts as long as they
eat it in moderation and balance
it with healthy choices because
nuts
have general health benefits
which diabetics also can benefit
from.

3 REASONS WHY NUTS MIGHT BE
HEALTHY FOR DIABETES
1. One of the reasons why
groundnut and nuts are good for
diabetes is that it helps to lower
cholesterol.
High cholesterol levels is
detrimental to our health as it
can
contribute to the risk of heart
disease. However, the
unsaturated fats in nuts help
lower low-density
lipoprotein, the "bad" cholesterol
while raising the levels
of high-density lipoprotein, the
"good" form of cholesterol.
Type of Drug For Diabetes Can
Cause Heart Failure
Another reason nut helps to
lower cholesterol is that it is
highly rich in
fiber and plant
sterols. It was even
reported
that eating 30
grams of walnuts daily over a
long period like 6-
month period could help people
with type 2 diabetes because it
could reduce LDL by 10
percent and raised HDL levels by
a good percentage.

2. The number two reason why
nuts might be good for diabetes
is that nuts help to lower
glycemic
index of foods.
The glycemic index is a
measurement of how fast your
body absorbs certain
carbohydrates. Foods with
higher glycemic
index is harmful for
diabetics because they will be
absorbed fastly by the body and
faster absorption
raises blood glucose levels more
rapidly.
People with diabetes who eat
nuts along
with foods with a high-glycemic
index such as pasta could slow
their absorption
of carbohydrate and thus
stabilizing their blood glucose
levels because adding almonds to
white bread
lowered the glycemic index in a
research conducted on non-
diabetics.

3. The third reason nuts might be
good for diabetes is that nuts
help to reduce the risk of heart
disease.
Since diabetics have double or
higher
the risk developing heart disease
than people without diabetes,
eating in MODERATION foods
such as almonds and
walnuts which are high in
vitamin E can slow plaque
development that leads to
atherosclerosis. Also walnuts are
rich in Omega-3 fatty
acids, which help to
reduce the risk of developing
irregular heartbeats and heart
attack. Other nuts such as
almonds,
macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and
pecans also have
heart-protective benefits.
Another reason nuts are good
for the heart is that they contain
L-
arginine, an amino acid found in
nuts, which make artery walls
more
flexible, thus preventing
blood clotting and ensure
smooth flow of blood to the
heart.

BOTTOM LINE
Nuts which groundnut is among
is good for everybody including
diabetics. However, it should be
taken in moderation or daily
right proportion especially for
diabetes patients.nuts
