“Tree Secret” BLASTS Diabetes

Dear Reader,

Endless finger pricking. Constantly checking the labels on foods to see how much sugar is in a serving.

Trying to decide what to eat for dinner that won’t send your blood sugar through the roof.

This is the reality of living with diabetes… and it’s no picnic.

It’s not an easy illness to manage by any means, and if you struggle with it, you know just how much it can change your life.

Thankfully, there are ways to get your blood sugar under control that don’t involve popping pills or jabbing yourself with a needle.

There’s an easy way to prevent diabetes and lower your blood sugar naturally, and the secret comes from something found on trees.

A study published in BMJ Open journal found that consuming tree nuts can lead to LOWER blood sugar and triglycerides (high triglycerides are often a problem with diabetics).

They found that the greatest DECLINE in blood sugar and triglycerides was seen in participants who ate an average of 50g of tree nuts (about a handful or half a cup) every day, compared to the group who did not consume nuts.

While nuts are high in calories, research also shows that they actually HELP with weight loss, which is key for anyone trying to beat diabetes.

They’re also packed with many minerals and antioxidants that help protect your heart and cells.

And they are a rich source of fiber, which helps keep your gut healthy and lowers your risk of diabetes.

What’s more? They reduce inflammation, the root cause of diabetes and blood sugar issues.

If you’re looking for a midday snack, consider grabbing a handful of tree nuts.

Some examples of these are brazil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, chestnuts, pistachios and walnuts.

Or you could use them as a salad topping or a great addition to yogurt.
