Bran Prolongs Life In Diabetic Women!
Diabetic Women: Eat your bran and live longer!
We've known that whole grains can protect the heart and help prevent Type II Diabetes. Now there's even better news: Whole grains can actually make diabetic women with Type II Diabetes live longer.
In a recent study at Harvard Medical School, it was found that those women who consumed higher levels of bran were 28% less likely to die (during the term of the study) than those who consumed less bran. The results of the study were published in the journal, Circulation.
Where is bran found? In whole grains.

Whole grains are those grains with the outer shell left in tact and that's where the nutrients are.
Whole grains include foodstuffs like oatmeal, brown rice, barley and whole wheat, to name a few and are loaded with antioxidants, fiber and nutrients that help to keep insulin levels lower, while lowering cholesterol and blood sugar.
