Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Asparagus could be a powerful new weapon in the fight against diabetes.
Scientists found a regular intake kept blood sugar levels under control and boosted the body’s production of insulin.
They injected rats with chemicals to induce a diabetic state. They treated half with an extract from the asparagus plant and the rest with anti-diabetic drug glibenclamide.
