In The News: Eating Berries May Lower The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

New research has been released about the potential for berries and the anthocyanins they contain to actually help reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes (DM) by 18 %. A new meta analysis conducted by researchers in China looked at 8 cohort studies, providing a total of almost 400,000 people combined. After analysis of data from these studies the authors concluded that consuming dietary anthocyanins was associated with a 15% decrease in risk of developing Type 2 DM and eating berries was associated with an 18% decrease in risk. This is a novel study in that it is supposedly one of the first to look into the impact of berry consumption and anthocyanin intake to reduce diabetes risk. The researchers speculate that risk reduction could be due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of anthyocyanins contained in the berries. Check out the research HERE.
