The Perfect Pairing for Blood Sugar Balance: Almonds and Fenugreek Seeds

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Almonds and fenugreek seeds are an excellent combination for controlling blood glucose levels. Fenugreek seeds contain hydroxy isoleucine (an amino acid that increases glucose-induced insulin release), which can help control blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity, and saponins which can help control blood lipids. On the other hand, almonds have sufficient amounts of protein and fats. Therefore, when fenugreek seeds and almonds are combined, they can help control blood glucose levels.

Optimisation of almonds and fenugreek seeds
• Try adding 30 grams of medium glycaemic index carbohydrates such as bananas, raw pineapples and cereals to stabilise glucose levels.
• Almonds and fenugreek seeds are blood glucose-balancing food options. Try to check the proportions of both to prevent hyperglycaemia or hypoglycaemia.
• When you are breaking the fast with almonds, hypoglycaemia can be observed due to the breakdown of fats; try having fenugreek seeds and bananas at this time to prevent hypoglycaemia.

Almonds in combination with fenugreek seeds can significantly control blood glucose levels. Almonds can significantly reduce fasting glucose and insulin response; similarly, fenugreek seeds when incorporated into the diet can reduce fasting blood sugar and improve glucose tolerance. The use of both of these food items together can help in controlling blood glucose levels.
