Blueberries, Apples…May Reduce Diabetes Risk

Blueberries, Apples, Grapes May Reduce Diabetes Risk

A new study suggests that eating more fruit, particularly blueberries, grapes and apples, but not drinking fruit juice, may reduce diabetes risk. Fruit add a variety of necessary vitamins and minerals to the diet. All fruits vary in nutritional value and some may be more beneficial for certain conditions than others. Blueberries have high antioxidant levels due to the presence of anthocyanins, which are the pigments many plants produce to attract the birds and insects necessary for pollination. Research suggests that blueberries may be useful in lowering glucose (blood sugar) or modifying other factors associated with diabetes.
