I wanted to share some important information with you regarding diabetes and KAMUT® wheat. I’ve always believed that “we are what we eat”, and that many of today’s health conditions could be alleviated if we paid more attention to eating nutritious food. This latest study revealed that a KAMUT® Khorasan Wheat-based replacement diet improves the risk profile of patients with Type 2 Diabetes. You can find the whole study here and our press release which explains the key findings here.
I’ve summarized the main takeaway points for you as follows:
- Despite the demonization of wheat by some “experts,” a recently published series of research articles have demonstrated that ancient wheat, like KAMUT® khorasan wheat, is important for not only maintaining good health but also improving poor health. What the most recent study demonstrates is that it’s the quality of the wheat that is important. Ancient wheat differs from modern wheat because it hasn’t been modified over the last 60 to 70 years, and still provides a plethora of vitamins and minerals, iron, fibers and antioxidants naturally.
- All carbohydrates are not your enemy. Nutrient dense good carbs are beneficial for you and are necessary to maintain good health. In addition, some carbs, like those found in ancient KAMUT® khorasan wheat, can help stall diabetes.
- Consumption of KAMUT® khorasan wheat also helps reduce inflammation, which is especially important for diabetics, as it may lead to the reduction of secondary complications brought on by further vascular deterioration leading to circulatory problems and capillary malfunctions.
I hope you share this information with your family and friends, and more importantly use it to help avoid a disease that according to the International Diabetes Federation, is one of the largest global health emergencies of the 21st century. It has risen to epidemic proportions worldwide: 415 million adults, or one in 11, have diabetes, and this number is estimated to increase up to 642 million adults, or one in 10, by 2040. Please, don’t become one of those statistics, and just remember, your health is in your hands!
