In India: Turmeric Steadies Blood Sugar

In India, turmeric isn’t just a flavorful spice -- it’s a medicinal staple and one of their go-to herbs when blood sugar problems flare. And now research at India’s Gujarat University confirms that turmeric’s active ingredient, called curcumin, switches on the genes that keep blood glucose levels in check. This compound also helps the pancreas’ ability to make insulin when sugar levels creep up. You must take at least half a teaspoon daily in order to see the benefits so start thinking about adding them to your meat and veggie dishes. A little dash also tastes great on eggs and rice.
