Blueberry Drink May Protect Against Type 2 Diabetes

Those of us with PCOS are particulary vulnerable to pre-diabetes, which, though reversible, is often the precursor to type 2 diabetes. But blueberry juice with a little added bacteria from the fruit’s skin may help women with both PCOS and pre-diabetes escape the onset of type 2 diabetes, which is irreversible in most cases and often requires daily injections of insulin.
 
Canadian researchers found that juice “biotransformed” with bacteria protected young pre-diabetic mice from type 2 diabetes as well as obesity, according to a study appearing online in August in the International Journal of Obesity.
 
The bacteria Serratia vaccinii, a new strain isolated from blueberry, appeared to work by enhancing the fruit’s natural antioxidant effects. The blood glucose levels of lab mice, which were genetically predisposed to obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes and hypertension, fell by 35% after three days of drinking the super juice.
 
More research is needed. But in the meantime be sure to include lots of blueberries in your PCOS and pre-diabetes diet as they are a powerhouse fruit when it come to antioxidants.
