Put NUTS in Your Mouth If You Wanna Prevent Type 2 Diabetes!

Eating pistachios could help prevent type 2 diabetes.  Researchers in Spain studied people with higher-than-normal blood sugar levels.  

 

Such people have what doctors call pre-diabetes.  

 

Those who ate about two ounces of pistachios a day showed significant drops in blood sugar and insulin levels, along with improved insulin and glucose processing.  

 

 

 

 

The study is reported in the journal "Diabetes Care."
