BROCCOLI COULD TREAT DIABETES

Broccoli could be key to treating diabetes – as a compound in the vegetable helps to lower blood sugar levels.

Research has found that eating or drinking broccoli in the form of juice could help stop type 2 diabetes.

Professor Anders Rosengren, of Lund University Diabetes Centre in Sweden, said: ‘Since sulforaphane has very few side effects and can easily be provided as a broccoli shake or drink – for example – it has the potential to become an important complement to existing treatment options for type 2 diabetes.

‘We will now work to make broccoli sprout extract available to produce as a functional food.’
