Pomegranates are loaded with antioxidants that help to prevent damage to cells by free radicals. They contain polyphenols that improve your body’s insulin sensitivity and lower inflammation. Pomegranates have a low GI with a moderate glycemic load. Hence, having too many at once can spike your glucose levels.

Mastering pomegranate consumption for optimal glucose control
• Pair pomegranates with nuts or mixed seeds. The protein and fats in nuts can help improve glucose response.
• Try to avoid consuming pomegranates with your meals since they can increase glucose levels.
• As with any other fruit, portion control is a must with pomegranates too. This keeps sugar levels in control.
• Walk after having pomegranates. It helps regulate blood sugar levels.

Pomegranates contain phytochemicals that improve insulin sensitivity and reduce insulin resistance. Having a low GI, pomegranates have a slow and steady effect on your body’s glucose levels. Pomegranates are better when consumed as the fruit itself because of the fibres present. However, the juice is also found to be helpful if it contains no added sugars. However, in large quantities, it tends to increase blood sugar levels. Moderation is the key to managing a healthy sugar level.
