It is well known that type 2 diabetes can lead to obesity due to elevated blood sugar levels, however this isn’t the only health complication it has. It can be accompanied by other health problems like poor vision, weakness, kidney failure, heart disease, hypertension, and nerve damage.

Lifestyle changes and improving your diet has to be the first step to getting better, however there are other supplements, herbs and natural remedies that can help. One addition is mango leaves, which are full of benefits for diabetics.

Mango leaves are full of active compounds that control the symptoms of diabetes. They include:

  • Caffeic acid which helps lower glucose
  • Mangiferin which lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Flavonoids help reduce the occurrence of Type-2 diabetes and can prevent cardiovascular disease
  • Gallic acid reduces the risk of heart attacks in Type-1 diabetes

3 Benefits of Mango Leaves

  1. Blood sugar control

Managing blood sugar is the best way to manage diabetes. Mango leaves improve glucose distribution which lowers blood sugar.

  1. Cholesterol check

High cholesterol damages your heart. Mango leaves are rich in pectin, vitamin C and fiber which lower cholesterol.
