Almost every health journal, fitness magazine and awareness seminars we usually hear, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, drink a glass of milk for fantastic intake of calcium, eat green veggies in order to keep the skin clean and digestion clear and have tomatoes for bright skin tone and there are so many other tricks and tips for better health. But there is no saying like “eat chocolate if you are a diabetic” amazing NO? It’s a truth according to the research on diabetes that those who consumes specific kind of chocolate has less prevalence of diabetes in body. So for all the diabetics and chocolate lovers, pull up your socks and visit the reliable store to buy some chocolates from The Carob Kitchen.
Okay! Before they get excited let’s discuss few basics regarding this delicious support of diabetes, the most common form of diabetic chocolate bars is known as ‘dark chocolate’ basically dark chocolate contains polyphenols which reduces the prevalence of harmful molecules in human body, as a result blood sugar level sustains and hardly spikes which as a result controls the diabetes, the common phenomenon regarding diabetes and sugar intake is (anything sweet is prohibited under diabetic condition) which is totally incorrect. To be exact (according to the study) those who consume dark chocolate every week has less chances of diabetes (as compared to those who never consumes chocolates).
To simplify this deal even more, since they are ready to buy some serious sweet chocolates, try to find only dark chocolate (first rule) than try to check the ingredients behind the packaging (those with high presence of cocoa and polyphenol dark chocolates are desirable), as this contains high amount of antioxidants and higher presence of cocoa is extremely beneficial for overall health and sugar level. Make sure to check the presence of ‘alkali’ those who misunderstand this element with alcohol (this is not a short form of alcohol) this is an ingredient which reduces the strength of bitterness of cocoa and as a result reduces the health benefits too (drastically).
So it’s also important to recheck the alkali quantity in a dark chocolate (the bitter the better) because of cocoa. Enjoy the dark chocolate which is natural and less processed, another tip is; those who are type 1 diabetic (diabetic since childhood) must be very careful as they cannot consume without doctor’s prescription and consultation, whereas all the above mentioned information may work for type 2 diabetes (which is controllable, although type 1 is also controllable) but type 2 can be benefited with the usage of dark chocolate. And the next tip s for all diabetics which is; never go crazy on sugar items (no matter what), stay moderate and sensible especially on chocolate.
