The American Association for the Advancement of Science has found a different option for people who are diagnosed with diabetes that is more natural than what is available now. Therefore, they found a way to isolate sulforaphane which broccoli is rich in and test it our with how it would affect people who cannot produce their insulin to use sugar as their fuel. In conclusion, researchers found that people eating the broccoli did have better results in keeping sugar or glucose as energy needed, but much more research is still to be done for an effective natural cure.
- Conventional diabetes treatment involves drugs to control glucose levels like metformin, but as many as one-in-seven patients cannot tolerate this type of medication
- Scientists have known for some time that sulforaphane and another antioxidant called quercetin are superheroes in the fight to protect cellular health
- Sulforaphane is by no means the only natural treatment for diabetes being investigated by researchers. Very Well reports that there are several other natural remedies that show great promise
“This is important because the body uses sugar as fuel for the cells, and the hormone insulin allows this sugar to enter the cells”
