Blackberries are usually rich sources of fibre. Due to the same reason, it can help reduce blood sugar levels and prevent weight gain. Having a low glycemic index, they are less likely to increase blood sugar levels. However, the fructose and glucose present in blackberries can cause hyperglycemia. This may results in blackberries giving a low food score. Here’s how to optimise it.

Optimising the glucose levels
• Opting for low glycemic index fruits (apples, pears, oranges, etc.). This lowers the rise in blood sugar levels.
• Controlling the portion of fruit. Overeating can cause glucose levels to fluctuate.
• Pairing with nuts or nut butter. This tends to change the glycemic index of the meal.
• Pairing with a protein shake. It stabilises blood sugar levels.

Consuming blackberries was found to have a positive effect on diabetics. Also, including berries in the diet was found to break down fat. Blackberry was found to inhibit body weight by 40.5%. Studies found that having around 150 grams per day in normal conditions and 600 grams in obese conditions has proven helpful. Following a healthy and balanced diet helps lead a healthy lifestyle.
