Foods can control diabetes. Some diabetics patients can maintain normal blood sugar levels without medication. Even when diabetics still require medication, a proper meal plan can improve their condition significantly for a healthier life. Here are 7 foods with the nutrients to beat diabetes.

1. Bitter Melon

Bitter melon contains at least three active substances with anti-diabetic properties, including charantin. Charantin has a blood glucose-lowering effect, vicine and an insulin-like compound known as polypeptide-p. These substances either work individually or together to help reduce blood sugar levels.

2. Cinnamon

Cinnamon has a positive effect on reducing blood glucose levels. It can make your cells more sensitive to insulin. Thus, the cells convert sugar into energy more efficiently and control the amount of sugar level in the blood.

3. Coffee

Oats contain a high percentage of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E and antioxidants. The large amount of fiber causes a slower absorption of glucose, and combining antioxidants makes the oatmeal recommended food to stabilize blood sugar levels.

5. Sparkling Water
