Asparagus is latest weapon against diabetes

23 November, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Asparagus is latest weapon against diabetesLondon: Asparagus could be a powerful new culinary weapon in the fight against diabetes.

Scientists have found regular intake of the increasingly popular vegetable keeps blood sugar levels under control and boosts the body`s production of insulin, the hormone that helps it to absorb glucose, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

Britain`s consumption of asparagus has soared in recent years to record levels of around 8,000 tonnes a year. As well as its delicate flavour, it now appears it could have a vital role to play in combating Britain`s looming diabetes crisis.

Type two diabetes, which accounts for 90 per cent of all diabetes cases, is emerging as a major health burden.

End.

It would be a very ideal form of herbal drug in case it is proved for all diabetic patients and would be a great discovery.
