How Green Tea Helps to Manage Diabetes Mellitus Type 2?

Obesity is undoubtedly one of the most frightening diseases one can ever get exposed to. It slowly destroys your healthy living. One other disease which closely resembles it is diabetes. And unfortunately, several people have to live with both of it. As the number of people classified as overweight or obese have increased in the past few decades, the number of people seeking diabetes treatment in Kolkata have increased as well.

Unfortunately, once diabetes onsets, it becomes very difficult to eliminate it permanently. But there are certain things one can do in order to help the condition. One of the Mother Nature’s miraculous offerings is green tea. Its beneficial effect on weight loss is no big secret, but it is known by only a few that it does amazing things to manage diabetes mellitus type 2 as well.

Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Diabetes is a condition that makes an individual inefficient in metabolizing sugar. In the type 2, the body becomes insensitive to the insulin produced. As a result, after a time, the blood sugar profile of the individual rises drastically. Green tea offers amazing contribution in this scenario. The catechins of the green tea help the cells to become sensitive enough to metabolize sugar. It also enhances the overall metabolism of the body if consumed on a regular basis.

Even if an individual does not suffer from diabetes, drinking green tea will help him to keep this disease at bay. In fact, people who drink 3 to 6 cups of green tea in a day are 33 percent less likely to have diabetes in their lifetime. Consuming it regularly for a decade or so makes the drinker have a waist of smaller circumference and lesser risk of being diabetic and obese.

Green Tea - ILS Bariatric Care

One of the most beneficial substances of green tea is the antioxidants called polyphenols. It helps to deal with the oxidative stress. Also, it promotes vasodilation, the process of widening of the arteries, which allows the blood to flow effortlessly and thus, controls blood pressure and cholesterol profile along with preventing blood clotting within the arteries.

All these complications are closely related to diabetes; thus, the component polyphenol overall helps to regulate the sugar profile and control it effectively. So along with seeking diabetes treatment in Kolkata, sipping a few cups of green tea each day can help to lead a healthier life.
