Consumption Of Beat Fruit In Diabetics?
I’m a diabetic, can I eat beat fruit every day?
Hello, good morning Bambang.
Beets have many benefits for the body. Beets contain various body minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and iron, contain vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin B9 (folic acid), carbohydrates, protein, antioxidants, and soluble fiber.
In people with diabetes, beets also have benefits, namely lowering blood glucose levels and increasing insulin sensitivity. This is because beets contain the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid. Recent research also states that beets help relieve peripheral nerve complaints in people with diabetes. In addition, beets can also lower blood pressure and this is also beneficial for people with diabetes, considering that one of the common complications of diabetes is increased blood pressure (diabetes).
However, as with other foods, consume beets in moderation and not in excess. Avoid consuming large amounts of beets, because consuming too many beets can actually lower calcium levels in the body, damage the kidneys, and worsen kidney disease.
That's all, hope it helps.
