Berries Lower Type 2 Diabetes and Cariovascular Disease Risk

Berries are rich in a compound called polyphenols which in recent research were shown to decrease pot meal glucose response. Blood glucose levels may be associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. Nutraingredients commented ” reduced rate of sucrose digestion, and / or absorption from the gastrointestinal tract are the most probable mechanisms underlying the delayed and attenuated glycemic response from consumption of polyphenols”
