Recently, we've had conversations about how helpful Almonds are in keeping our BG levels down. Here's some information about how walnuts are helpful to us too.
Walnuts and Blood Sugar
Nuts are high in protein, fiber, and unsaturated fat, which means they're not only nutritious but slowly digested, too. And research suggests that nuts also may boost insulin sensitivity — a nice bonus.
Even better, though? Walnuts may be particularly useful for people managing diabetes. In one study, regularly eating walnuts seemed to improve endothelial function in people with diabetes.
That's a really great thing because endothelia — the cells lining your arteries — are one of the first things to suffer when high blood sugar begins to wreak havoc in the body.
