Probiotics for Diabetics

Studies point to probiotics as a possible treatment strategy for Type 2 diabetes. In a 2010 human study, a positive effect on insulin sensitivity was achieved thanks to the supplement L. acidophilus. The most common way to add this type of probiotic to your diet is to eat it; the supplement L. acidophilus is commonly found in dairy products, especially yogurt.*

Look for labels of probiotic sources that promote “active live cultures.” L. acidophilus can also be naturally sourced from onions, bananas, tomatoes, garlic, honey, wheat and barley.
