 (IANS) Asparagus could be a powerful new culinary weapon in the fight against diabetes.

 

Scientists have found regular intake of the increasingly popular vegetable keeps blood sugar levels under control and boosts the body's production of insulin, the hormone that helps it to absorb glucose, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

 

Britain's consumption of asparagus has soared in recent years to record levels of around 8,000 tonnes a year. As well as its delicate flavour, it now appears it could have a vital role to play in combating Britain's looming diabetes crisis.

 

Type two diabetes, which accounts for 90 per cent of all diabetes cases, is emerging as a major health burden.
