Recently published studies support the use of cinnamon, cocoa and omega-3 to protect against type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon can be useful in reducing A1c levels for people with Type 2 Diabetes, this according to a study published in the Journal of the American Board Family Medicine.
Type 2 Diabetics who consumed pure cocoa witnessed a 30% increase in arterial blood flow according to the Journal of American College of Cardiology June 3rd addition. Additionally, a presentation presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2011 Congress showed that people who consumed the most chocolate had a 29% lower risk of stroke compared with people who consumed the lease amount of chocolate.

A study published in Nutrition and Metabolism is the first to show how omega 3 fatty acids play a role in metabolic processes with respects to blood sugar and fat processing; reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Professor Brier leads an international research team and indicates omega 3 fatty acids improve carbohydrate and fat metabolism. A diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids helps to burn metabolic fuels (glucose and fat) better, and can regulate energy storage across different tissues.
“These findings are important because the ageing process is closely linked with a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome – a clustering of risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and obesity,” says Professor Breier, Chair of Human Nutrition at the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health at Albany.
