The Secret to Prevent Diabetes with Maple Syrup

Did you know that your favorite maple syrup is effective in fighting cancer and diabetes? According to the studies conducted by US researchers, there are strong evidences showing that maple syrup can substantially slow down the growth of cancer cells and can effectively reduce the risk of diabetes. 

The new research shows that your favorite maple syrup has thirteen active compounds that serve as antioxidants. These thirteen compounds were previously unknown. The discovery proved that maple syrup could be very effective in fighting bacterial infection, diabetes and cancer.

An Effective Solution for Diabetes Sufferers
Maple syrup contains high levels of phytohormone and abscisic acid. According to research, this type of acid is a natural defense in controlling diabetes and other metabolic syndromes. 

The acid is effective because it has the potential to encourage the release of insulin through the pancreatic cells. It can also enhance the fat cell’s sensitivity to insulin. The studies on maple syrup and its effects on diabetes have been reviewed by experts. The results of these studies were revealed before the American Chemical Society in San Francisco.

Maple Syrup as Your Best Chance against Cancer 
A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food showed that maple syrup can significantly inhibit the growth of cancerous cells. This study was conducted by Quebec scholars. It seeks to prove the impact of maple syrup against cancer cells. 

Based on the Quebec research, the growth of cancer cells can be inhibited by maple syrup. Specifically, the syrup is very effective against brain, prostate, and lung cancer. Unfortunately, maple syrup has minimal impact against breast cancer growth.

Your Tasty Alternative to Fight Cancer and Diabetes 
Maple syrup can serve as your tasty alternative in fighting cancer and diabetes. There are many anti cancer foods today like blueberries, tomatoes, broccoli, and carrots. However, recent studies have shown that maple syrup is more effective against cancer compared to other anti cancer foods. Laboratory testing results also show that the syrup is more potent compared to the maple sap.

It is also ideal to use the pure dark syrup rather than the lighter syrup. Dark syrup has high color oxidation. This is the reason why darker maple syrup should be preferred. So if you want a better alternative to fight cancer and diabetes, then your favorite maple syrup is a good option.

More Easy Healthy Recipes And Diet Tips

Hello everyone, let me apologize for not posting in ages but I'm busy with a big project that takes up most of my time now and doesn't leave time for blogging. I was very surprised when I checked my blog now and saw that the number of my followers has grown to a fantastic 8. Thank you so much for your interest, guys!

Now, there is something I feel I need to share with you. I just got an email from Matthew from FaveDietsBlog, letting me know he liked my blog and shared some of my cooking tips on his. I went to pay him a visit, and what I discovered was awesome.

FaveDietsBlog has its focus on diet and weight loss tips, healthy eating and mouthwatering healthy recipes. Here are just two posts that caught my eye:

Healthy Chicken Dinners in 30 Minutes Or Less
Chicken recipes are great if you are in a hurry, since this meat is quick to prepare, and it's very healthy because low in fat. Matthew has got two great recipes on his blog, and links to more on his website.

Healthier Cheese Cake Is Delicious
Don't know about you but I love cheese cake. Fortunately, I'm not one of those who have to worry about calories, but since I got my own family to look after I'm much more conscious of healthy eating. This cheese cake recipe is low in fat by using fat free sour cream and cream cheese, and also leaves the option of replacing sugar with sugar substitutes, making it even healthier. Sounds like a cheese cake even dieters and diabetics could enjoy without having to feel guilty.
