Cinnamon increases glycogen storage by affecting the glycogen synthesis activity
Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how your body regulates blood sugar levels. Managing diabetes involves maintaining a balanced diet, staying physically active, monitoring blood sugar levels, and taking medications or insulin as prescribed.
While certain drinks can be incorporated into a diabetes management routine, it is essential to consider their impact on blood sugar levels. Nutritionist Lovneet Batra shares drinks that may be helpful in managing diabetes.

Drinks that will help manage diabetes, according to the nutritionist:
1. Methi seeds water
Soluble fibres in fenugreek including glucomannan fiber delays intestinal absorption of ingested sugars and alkaloids such as fenugrecin and trigonelline have demonstrated to possess hypoglycemic action, and 4 hydroxyisoleucine (4-OH Ile) amino acids act on pancreas to release insulin.
2. Giloy water
One of the alkaloid compounds in giloy is berberine. It is a traditional herbal remedy that human studies have shown reduces blood sugar. Berberine works in a similar way to the diabetes medication metformin
3. Cinnamon tea
Cinnamon increases glycogen storage by affecting the glycogen synthesis activity. The natural agents found in cinnamon serve as insulin to keep the blood glucose level stable
It is essential for individuals with diabetes to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a registered dietitian, to create a personalised meal plan that accounts for their specific needs, including any dietary restrictions or health conditions.
