Tea and Diabetes have an interesting relationship - with studies showing mixed results but mainly focused around green tea. The general rule for diabetics is not to add milk to tea your tea, as this can reduce the insulin-sensitising effects.
According to diabetes.co.uk, a 2009 study showed drinking three cups of tea per day could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 40 per cent.
Tea, along with a healthy diet - is a great way to in managing diabetes. The teas to avoid would be any containing sugar (our herbal range is of course all sugar free), or tea containing artificial additives. Please note that research is still ongoing in this area, so please consult with your doctor before any radical changes to your diet or introducing new teas.
