for those suffering from type two diabetes, experts reveal
Popping a vitamin C tablet twice a day could help more than one million Aussies with type two diabetes lower blood sugar levels, according to a new study. Researchers at Melbourne's Deakin University found taking two 500mg doses after meals can lower blood sugar levels and reduce blood sugar spikes for those with the disease. The findings published in the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism journal found participants had a 36 per cent drop in their blood sugar spike after meals.
'We found participants had a significant 36 per cent drop in the blood sugar spike after meals,' lead researcher and Associate Professor Glenn Wadley said on Monday..
This also meant they spent almost three hours less per day living in a state of hyperglycaemia.
'Vitamin C's antioxidant properties can help counteract the high levels of free radicals found in people with diabetes.'
