Eating this once-forbidden food may be the easiest way to get blood sugar levels under control.

Eat This Forbidden Food to Fight Diabetes

In All Health Watch, Diabetes, Diet and Nutrition, Featured Article by INH Research1 Comment

A new study reveals there’s a simple dietary tweak that may lead to major health benefits for the millions of Americans with type 2 diabetes. Especially those with a vitamin D deficiency.

The research appears in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. It found diabetic rats fed eggs dramatically improved their blood glucose levels. They also had higher concentrations of vitamin D. And they put on less weight than rats not eating eggs.

The numbers were significant. Eggs lowered blood glucose levels by nearly 50%. Their blood levels of vitamin D were 148% higher. And their plasma triglyceride concentrations—a risk factor for heart disease—dropped 52%.1

The Form of Vitamin D Your Body Craves

The researchers took particular interest in 25-hydroxyvitamin D-3. This is the form of vitamin D in your blood. It reflects the body’s overall vitamin D status.

According to the authors, “Eggs are the richest source of 25-hydroxyvitamin D-3 in the diet . . . there isn’t any conversion required to make it into the blood. If you take it in a supplement or food fortified with vitamin D, it has to be converted to that form.”2 That’s why it made sense to test eggs in the diet rather than vitamin D supplements.

Eggs Were Never the Enemy

The rats in the study ate a lot of eggs… About the human equivalent of 17-18 daily. But based on the severity of the rats’ diabetes—and how positive the results were—researchers believe eggs could have a positive impact in humans, too.

In fact, a Finnish study published last year showed that men who ate four eggs a week are 38% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.3

There’s no reason to avoid eggs. Even the government dietary guidelines have stopped villainizing them.4 Just make sure you eat the entire egg. That’s because the 25D—and most of the other nutrients—is only in the yolk.

When it comes to diabetes… It’s more than sugar consumption and obesity causing rates to skyrocket. There are hidden triggers increasing your diabetes risk right now. Ones you’d never expect.

  1. Thank you for this information on eggs and diabetes. Most people will ask the seniors to stop eating eggs because it could influence their cholesterol levels and if they are to eat at all it should be the egg white only. Thanks for correcting the superstition.
