Broccoli is not the world’s favorite vegetable, but it’s actually very healthy and can improve your overall health. According to newest studies, broccoli contains a compound called sulforaphane which can reverse the damage done by diabetes in your body. If left untreated, diabetes can damage your blood vessels, including the ones that lead to the heart and brain, which may result in several life-threatening conditions.
Diabetes affects about 5% of Europeans. There are 3 types of the disease – type 1, which results from the pancreas’s failure to produce enough insulin; type 2, in which the cells aren’t able to response to insulin properly and gestational diabetes, which affects pregnant women without a previous history of the disease.
People suffering from type 1 diabetes shouldn’t treat themselves naturally before consulting with a medical professional. Before trying any natural remedy, they are advised to do a 7-day liver cleanse in order to improve the effects of the desired treatment.
Many type 1 diabetes patients have had great results by following the diabetes diet invented by the American explorer Dr. Anderson. The diet lasts for 21 days. You should boil 300-500 gr. of broccoli in a liter of water for 5 minutes, then drink half of the liquid in the morning before breakfast, and the other half in the evening before going to bed. For lunch, the diet suggests eating broccoli with a teaspoon of cinnamon. During the diet, you will undergo a process called glycolysis, which will significantly reduce your blood sugar levels.
There are more than 50 plants traditional medicine recognizes as potential diabetes remedies, and broccoli and dubcac are the most popular. Consuming them often can reduce your blood sugar levels and treat the disease as well.
