Top 10 foods for diabetics.
Olive oil – essential to healthy cooking.
Olive oil is considered to be one of the healthiest edible oils as it contains few saturated fats but is rich in healthy omega-9 and omega-3 fatty acids. The latter help to maintain the flexibility of the blood vessels. Olive oil is therefore a good protection for your cardiovascular system, which you as a diabetic have to pay particular attention to. Be sure to look for a cold-pressed oilwhen buying. It contains so-called tyrosolphenol compounds such as oleuropein and oleocanthal. They are two of the most powerful antioxidants in nature.
