Here, take a look:

1. Turmeric

For the past 5000 years, ancient Indian medicine has regarded turmeric as an incredibly powerful spice to heal countless health ailments. The traditional Indian diet recommends the use of turmeric in every recipe, be it white rice, soups, stews, or flour breads, as it encourages rapid and easy digestion of carbs to prevent a sudden blood sugar spike.

Turmeric owes its rich, yellow colour to its powerful concentration of curcumin, the active ingredient that is highly beneficial in maintaining healthy and balanced levels of blood sugar. Curcumin is the compound that also regulates fat metabolism within the body by directly influencing fat cells, kidney, cells, muscle cells and pancreatic cells, which allow it to reduce inflammation, and fight off the nefarious attacks of cancerous tumors, primarily interleukin-6 and necrosis factor.

Nutritionists and health experts widely recommend the regular consumption of turmeric to obtain the beneficial properties of curcumin, which reduce high cholesterol levels, insulin resistance, obesity, high blood sugar levels and all other symptoms that heighten the risk of diabetes.

2. Walnuts

These filling and delicious nuts are one of the richest sources of alpha-linolenic acid, which is an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that aids in reducing inflammation. It also boosts a powerful density of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, fiber, L-arginine and protective phytochemicals, which provide them potent antiviral, antioxidant, anti-cholesterol and anticancer properties.

These beneficial properties allow them to aid the body in preventing and eliminating the symptoms of several chronic ailments, primarily heart disease and diabetes.

Be sure to pick out walnuts with their shells intact, as the process of cracking them open forces you to slow down as you eat. This gives your body more time to chew and process the food, promoting feelings of satiation without having to consume too many calories.
