Arrow The news finding about diabetes and acai berry

With obesity on the rise, there has also been a drastic increase in the amount of people who are developing diabetes. It's a disease that affects millions of people each year and that number continues to rise. Acai berry has been used by the Amazons of Brazil for generations, but was recently introduced world wide, mainly as a health supplement but also as a weight loss enhancer. This article discusses acai berry and diabetes.

Diabetes is often responsible for rapid cellular deterioration. This is a process that has a highly negative impact on the heart and overall health. Acai berry has omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This helps heart health and counteracts the damage that this ailment can cause.

While there have been no studies conducted to confirm the relationship between acai berry and diabetes, doctors believe that acai berry can help regulate insulin levels which control blood sugar. Therefore it has been highly recommended as of late to assist with potentially improving the health of diabetics.

You should continue with your normally prescribed treatments, but acai berry can help to enhance your quality of life. Diabetes ultimately weakens the immune system over time due to repeated attacks on the body from this disease. This is yet another place where the acai berry comes in and helps the body to be stronger. The berry has been shown to improve and strengthen the immune system. This can benefit everyone, even those who don't have a major disease.

Another way the acai berry assists with diabetes is simple - everyone is supposed to consume five servings of fruits and vegetables each day. However, the majority of people simply fail to do so. This can have a detrimental effect on the health of a person with diabetes. However, with the acai berry and diabetes, a person can get a large portion of the nutrients they need to stay healthy just by consuming acai on a regular basis.

Although there have not been any detailed tests with acai berries and diabetes, there was a University of Florida in lab test that showed how the fruit killed 86% of leukemia cancer cells. If acai berries are that potent, it is a very good chance that their nutrients will have a positive impact for those suffering from diabetes.

To stay healthy, you're supposed to consume the proper amount of servings of each food category. Drinking or eating one type of food/drink to make up for all of the others, is unwise.

From reviews I've seen, it seems to raise bloodsugar in some which is dangerous. One thing does not work for everyone the same way. It has not been tested, as mentioned.

UHN news & health reporter states;
"Acai Berry may well be the most nutritious and health promoting food on the planet. From all reports, this berry is here to stay, and is actively cementing a firm position within the health and wellbeing industry."

She further says "Acai Berry is a food that virtually everyone can benefit by taking - I know what I will be buying later..."

Well personally I didn't like the taste. I found it somewhat bitter.

Mostly what I see in Acai is a bunch of people trying to make money off an expensive "rainforest superfruit" ...

Blueberries cost less, have as much healthy antioxidants, are less-expensive and taste better.

Just my 2c worth.

My husband has an acquaintance trying to get him into selling an acai product. Her main point is that it has helped her family make money.

Enough said.

This reminds me of years ago when I was in sales.
One saying was:
"You are not here to tell the truth as you see it, you are here to make the sale!"
