Avocado lovers who are dealing with diabetes are getting some great news.

According to Dr. Paul Spanguolo of SP Nutraceuticals, avocados are beneficial to those with diabetes and individuals teetering on being prediabetic.

AvocatinB (or AvoB) can be helpful in lowering blood sugar and more.

“AvoB is a bioactive ingredient in avocados, which can be an important dietary choice for diabetics and pre diabetics,” Spanguolo said.

Along with lowering blood sugar, avocados have been found to help lower cholesterol, feel fuller longer, and provide nutrients and vitamins for a healthy diet.

And they might just be that magical fruit that will help keep things balanced.

“When your metabolism is working, everything is in balance,” Dr. Spanguolo said.
