Benefits of dates

Can dates lower the blood sugar?

Hello Eti!

Studies have shown that people who ate dates had way too high of a blood sugar level, while those who ate Barely or Soy had a much better blood sugar level. High Glycemic Index foods give you a Boost for around 1 hour, then your dead on your feet; while Low G.I. foods keep you going, giving you energy, for a much longer time, without the initial over burst of wasted energy.  I have included a list of foods below that can help you keep blood sugar under contol.  It is better to eat foods on the Low G.I. food index.   For more answers to your questions go to www.planetyorgos.com
