We’ve known for a while that pecans are a heart-healthy super food full of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but new information shows that pecans can also help those with Type 2 Diabetes.
A recent study appearing in the online journal, Diabetes Care, showed that a daily dose of two ounces of pecans and other nuts helped control blood glucose levels in Type 2 diabetics. Additional benefits, as indicated in this study and numerous other studies, included lowering of bad (LDL) cholesterol due to the increased consumption of the nuts. This is great news for Type 2 diabetics, and in fact, for anyone wishing to lower their intake of carbohydrates.
