Product Description

Our Deluxe Diabetic Gift Basket contains the foods your body needs to help prevent and/or manage adult-onset diabetes. If you have a family history of diabetes, or are otherwise at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes, it is important to adjust your diet and to engage in regular exercise. If you already have Type 2 Diabetes, many foods can help your body manage this disease better.

With Type 2 Diabetes, there is either an insufficient production of insulin or the insulin produced doesn't work efficiently. In either situation, glucose in the bloodstream isn't able to get inside the cells of the body. Foods rich in vitamin C, unrefined carbohydrates, vitamin E, fiber, magnesium, chromium, monounsaturated fats, and potassium can all positively impact the body's management of Type 2 diabetes as well as help prevent the onset of the disease in the first place.

Love cinnamon? Researchers are now examining its role in Type 2 diabetes treatment. Cinnamon contains compounds that appear to help make insulin more efficient, improving its ability to bring glucose to the cells that need it. It seems to help fat cells recognize and respond to insulin, and has also shown some promise in reducing blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood fat. While too much cinnamon can be toxic, a mere quarter of a teaspoon per day is perfectly safe and all you need to reap the benefits mentioned above.

Did you know that two tablespoons of vinegar before a meal will dramatically reduce the spike in blood concentrations of insulin and glucose that come after a meal? In light of this exciting news, we've included a wonderful balsamic vinegar.
