Indian Vegetable Juice for Diabetes

Vegetables are a must for diabetes – this is a known fact. The fiber in them aids in controlling blood sugar levels. Of course, the starchy ones need to be avoided. Veggies are used in many ways to make sumptuous traditional subzis, but here we have used some of them to whip up quick nutritious drinks. Minty Cucumber Cooler is one such example. Water-filled and low glycemic index cucumber has been paired with low-fat curd and perked up with mint to make this delicately flavoured drink.

Indian Neem Juice for Diabetes

Chewing on neem leaves as well Neem Juice both can help control the elevated blood sugar levels which is the topmost goal of diabetes. The flavonoids in the Neem Juice bags the credit for this effect. This Neem juice should be consumed after consulting your doctor and depending on the dosage of medicine. Excess of Neem Juice may cause a reverse effect viz. hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) in some cases. So include it in small amounts twice a week and check for side effects if any. If it doesn’t suit, discontinue it.
