Benefit #7: Blood Sugar Regulation

For diabetic or pre-diabetic individuals, it is essential to focus on foods that have a low glycemic index. Low glycemic index foods are foods that will not cause a rapid spike in blood sugar after consumption. Fresh cranberries are great because they are a low glycemic food, which means they are slowly digested, absorbed, and metabolized and cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose.

Animal studies have shown improved insulin and blood sugar regulation. In addition, there has also been a cranberry study on people diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. It was found that consumption of cranberry juice resulted in lower fasting blood glucose levels.
