Foods That Make Natural Insulin:

Cabbage - Cabbage is rich in fiber and low in calories. Its glycemic index is very low and this is the reason why it reduces high blood sugar rapidly. Apart from this, cabbage also has antioxidant and anti-hyperglycemic elements which make it work as a medicine for diabetic patients. In 2008, a research was done on rats and it was found that the blood sugar level of rats who were fed cabbage for 60 days came down rapidly. Along with keeping the blood sugar level under control, they also benefit the kidneys.

Bhindi - The powerhouse of fiber is lady's finger. It is very effective in controlling the blood sugar level. It not only activates insulin, but also increases its production. Not only this, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors present in okra seeds prevent the conversion of starch into glucose. If you want, cut the okra pods and soak them in water at night and drink its water after waking up in the morning.

Bitter gourd- Bitter gourd acts as a medicine in blood sugar. It works to stimulate the pancreas. It contains ingredients like charantin, vicin and a polypeptide-P which are effective in controlling diabetes. Bitter gourd can be eaten in any form. Drink its juice or eat vegetables. If you drink 1 tablespoon of amla juice mixed with bitter gourd juice, then the secretion of insulin naturally increases.
Fenugreek seeds- Fenugreek contains trigonelline, which lowers blood sugar level less rapidly. You must eat fenugreek seeds soaked in hot water in the morning.

Curcumin – Turmeric extract increases the production of insulin by inhibiting phosphodiesterase activity.

Cinnamon - Cinnamon also works very well in removing insulin from the cells of the pancreas. Start including it in food in any form.
