The Only Dairy Diabetics NEED to Eat

(Before It's News)

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you’re trying to avoid diabetes, then you’re probably steering clear of certain foods.

I’m talking about things like cookies, candies, cakes and other carb-riddled treats that can send your blood sugar into orbit.

And your doctor may have even told you to cut back on dairy products, which often have lots of hidden sugar.

But before you go tossing out all the dairy in your fridge, there’s something you should know…

Scientists recently discovered that there’s one type of dairy you should be eating every day.

In fact, it could hold the key to making sure you never develop diabetes at all.

This diabetes defeater is good ol’ yogurt.

And it’s been the subject of health studies on everything from depression to irritable bowel syndrome to high blood pressure.

More recently, researchers pulled nutritional and health data on over 100,000 folks from three different long-running studies.

After scouring the data, researchers found that about 15,000 of the participants developed diabetes over the course of the studies.

However, what they found next was amazing…

Participants who were eating a daily serving of yogurt were 18 percent less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. And what was more incredible — this held true even after the scientists controlled for factors like weight and diet.

Interestingly, no other dairy products, including milk and cheese, were shown to lower your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

The researchers believe one of the reasons yogurt can lower your risk of diabetes is due to its probiotic content. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that may help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, both of which are key drivers of Type 2 diabetes.

Experts went on to calculate that 28 grams of yogurt daily is the magic number linked to the 18 percent lower risk of diabetes. This is roughly a one-ounce serving, or about two healthy spoonfuls.

Just like all foods, it’s best to select a yogurt that’s not full of added sugars or artificial ingredients. Go for an organic, full-fat, no-sweeteners-added variety to get the most blood sugar protection for your buck.

Live well,
