Green tea can prevent diabetes.
Seventy-eight others took three cups of hot water every day for the same period of time, followed by a two-week weaning period. They were all then tested for the following bio-markers: the rate of glycaemia and lipid, the immune system, the functioning of the liver and kidneys, inflammation and the ferrous toxicity.
It was discovered that green tea reinforced the antioxidant defences of those who had reached the pre-diabetic stage. And most importantly, the tea did not have any negative impact. Another group of 127 people participated in the study on the impact of fermented pawpaw on diabetes.
About 50 consumed two sachets of fermented pawpaw per day for a period of 14 weeks and 78 others took two glasses of hot water each day for the same period, followed by a two-week weaning period.
They were then tested for glycaemia, cholesterol, urea, creatinine and uric acid. "Those who consumed two sachets of fermented pawpaw showed several positive changes vis-a-vis the diabetes risk factors," Bahorun, the lead researcher said.
The results further showed that when taken in small doses, the fermented pawpaw could help in the promotion of oral hygiene. Researchers said that the results are very significant because they show reduction of risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular diseases without medical intervention.
