Lowering blood glucose can be done by eating raw! That is a fact and I can attest to it. Once you start your raw food diet, you’ll notice a change in your glucose level. And you know what’s good about it too? Lowering blood glucose does not require any medication; all you have to do is eat raw! There is actually a science that explains why raw food diet is effective in lowering glucose level. In fact in an article published by the American Diabetes Association entitled A Low-Fat Vegan Diet Improves Glycemic Control and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in a Randomized Clinical Trial in Individuals With Type 2 Diabetes, result of the test concluded that a low-fat vegan diet improves glycemic control.
LOWER YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE NOW! Here is an excellent and concise protocol for lowering blood glucose. This is a fantastic ebook you can download instantly by Barton Publishing.

This is a different but also effective way to reverse your diabetes from the methods shown in the video on this page. It is not a 100% raw food diabetes protocol. So please consider which lifestyle you are more comfortable with and will be able to follow for maximum benefit!
A raw food vegan diet’s main staple is vegetable. Plant-based foods—such as fruits, vegetables and whole grain products--are excellent sources of dietary fibers. Food that contains fiber and other types of carbohydrates are perfect for lowering blood glucose levels. How? Let’s use broccoli as an example. Broccoli is a low glycemic food. This means, it takes a while for its carbohydrate content to be digested and converted into glucose. Raw broccoli’s carbohydrate content is from sugar and dietary fiber. Unlike sugar, dietary fibers cannot be broken down into glucose. In fact, it goes down the intestinal tract undigested. Fiber affects digestion of other carbohydrate. Also, fiber in the intestinal tract slows down glucose absorption. This results to a low glucose level in the blood.
Eating raw food and going vegan is more than a diet; it is a lifestyle. With that said, it is easy to say why a raw food diet has an effect on blood glucose level. Part of a raw food lifestyle is healthy living. Exercise is usually done in conjunction with a raw food diet. Research shows that even a small amount of exercise is sufficient to pull your glucose level down. Get moving and start engaging on physical activities! You don’t have to join a marathon to lower your glucose level. A simple organic gardening is enough to keep you active. Know more on how to grow your organic garden by following this link.
