Drinking 100% fruit juice does not increase blood sugar levels, according to a study that supports a growing body of evidence that drinking does not have a significant effect on glycemic control.
The findings are consistent with previous research indicating that 100% fruit juice is not associated with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
A comprehensive data analysis quantitatively evaluated the relationship between drinking 100 juice cent and blood glucose control.
Using fasting blood glucose and fasting blood insulin levels as biomarkers for diabetes risk, the systematic review and meta-analysis included 18 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess the impact of 100% fruit juice , such as apple, berries, citrus, grape and pomegranate.
Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which the body can not respond to insulin.
The first line of defense to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes is to follow a healthy lifestyle.
It is recommended to eat well, exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight.
According to the study, published in the Journal of Nutritional Science, a glass of 118 ml of 100 percent juice counts as one serving (1/2 cup) of fruit, and can complement the whole fruit to help people to add more products to their diets.
