Maple Syrup Is Your Tasty Food That Can Fight Cancer and Diabetes

(Article contributed by Sandy Harris)
Are you looking for a natural solution to reduce the risk of diabetes and slow down the growth of cancer cells?  Your search is probably over because recent studies have shown that maple syrup holds the key to these problems. 

US researchers have found that maple syrup has the ability to substantially decrease the risk of diabetes.  The syrup also showed great potential in slowing down the growth of cancerous cells. 

Maple syrup has thirteen active antioxidant substances.  These antioxidants were previously unknown but were discovered only recently. Because of these antioxidants, researchers have firmed up that maple syrup has a great potential in fighting cancer growth, diabetes, and infections. 

Food for Diabetic Sufferers

Researchers found out that maple syrup contains phytohormone and abscisic acid.  This acid is the primary agent that serves as an effective defense against diabetes and metabolic syndrome.  The acid releases insulin through the pancreatic cells and can enhance the increased sensitivity of the fat cells to insulin.  These actions proved that claims that maple syrup is very effective in controlling diabetes. 

The studies were brought before the American Chemical Society in San Francisco.  The results were reviewed by experts and other researchers. 
Maple Syrup as Your Best Chance against Cancer

A study punished in the Journal of Medicinal Food showed that maple syrup can significantly inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.  This study was conducted by Quebec scholars.  It seeks to prove the impact of maple syrup against cancer cells. 

Based on the Quebec research, the growth of cancer cells can be inhibited by maple syrup.  Specifically, the syrup is very effective against brain, prostate, and lung cancer.  Unfortunately, maple syrup has minimal impact against breast cancer growth.
Your Tasty Alternative to Fight Cancer and Diabetes

Maple syrup can serve as your tasty alternative in fighting cancer and diabetes.  There are many anti cancer foods today like blueberries, tomatoes, broccoli, and carrots.  However, recent studies have shown that maple syrup is more effective against cancer compared to other anti cancer foods. 

Laboratory testing results also show that the syrup is more potent compared to the maple sap. It is also ideal to use the pure dark syrup rather than the lighter syrup.  Dark syrup has high color oxidation. This is the reason why darker maple syrup should be preferred.  So if you want a better alternative to fight cancer and diabetes, then your favorite maple syrup is a good option.

Note from Russell Eaton:  the glycemic index count for maple syrup is between 60 and 65 which is verging on high.  Therefore diabetics should be aware of the impact that maple syrup can have on the level of glucose in the blood.  This apart, maple syrup is an excellent sweetener, and indeed I recommend it in my book The Foolproof Diet (   The Foolproof Diet provides the world’s best collection of recipes for making non-dairy milk, and maple syrup is the perfect sweetening agent for these recipes.
