Metabolic syndrome refers to a series of diseases such as hypertension, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and waist fat Too much, if these diseases occur at the same time, it will increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
In this study, researchers randomly selected from Finland and ItalyMore than 100 adults with metabolic syndrome in Dali were divided into two groups: one group with a whole-grain diet and a group with a no whole-grain diet, with a period of 12 weeks .
The results of the study found that: a group of whole-grain diets is good blood sugar control after meals.
Researchers hypothesized: This may be because whole grains help stimulate the production of certain compounds (betaine compounds, such as pipecolic acid betaine), which are related to the improvement of insulin resistance and insulin secretion .
