2. Start eating the right food

Instead of using sugar and sweeteners, opt to go for the stevia instead. It is a natural sweetener but it does not spike up glucose levels as compared to other sweeteners. If you cannot entirely eliminate dairy products, then choose only organic products from pasture-raised animals. Incorporate food high in fiber since these slow down glucose absorption and regulate blood sugar levels. The recommended intake of fiber per day is at least 30 grams. You can get all the fiber you need from vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Healthy fats should also be included in your new diet.

The fats from coconut oil and avocados will help keep your blood glucose levels from increasing. Besides staying away from sugar, breaking up fat in the liver is also a goal when reversing prediabetes. This can be achieved by eating food rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals. A highly recommended prediabetes weapon is the celery juice. You can also eat papaya and berries for the phytochemicals, which help in repairing tissue damage in liver and the pancreas. Lastly, clean proteins. Although it does not help much with blood glucose levels directly, they can help decrease the body’s absorption of sugar. Food containing omega-3 fats are your best bet in getting clean protein.

 

3. Amplify!

Fish oil is a good supplement for proper insulin absorption. It is a safe and natural remedy for prediabetes. Usually paired with fish oil is CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10. This antioxidant works by combating inflammation and stress, which are actually main factors in developing diabetes. Another supplement that one can start taking is the ginseng. Like the CoQ10, it is not mainly used for reversing prediabetes, but its use as a natural appetite suppressant, metabolism booster, and fat burner also helps in lowering blood glucose levels.
