With rampant growth if diabetes amongst Indians and rapidly-changing unhealthy lifestyles which includes a sedentary lifestyle with little physical activity, along with increasing intake of processed food items, we need to take a step back and reevaluate our lifestyles and how we treat our body.

Diabetes can be brought under control using natural ways. For this food and fitness and how we treat our mind and body plays a very important role.

One needs to go back to natural and home remedies to control blood sugar, more than ever before. Research has already shown that a largely vegetarian diet that is low in calories, high in fibre and protein can help control diabetes, and in many cases prevent onset, when combined with healthy lifestyle choices and regular exercise.

Including vegetables like Spinach, Karela, Horse gram, Millets and foods rich in protein and magnesium and other vital minerals can help in diabetes. 

Spinach is a nutritional powerhouse and has a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Research says that just one cup of spinach contains 6 percent of your daily value of magnesium, a mineral that can help regulate your blood sugar. This type of produce in your diet can help offset the low levels of magnesium usually seen in people with type 2 diabetes. 

Elevated blood glucose levels increase the loss of magnesium in the urine, which in turn lowers blood levels of magnesium. Hence getting enough magnesium is especially important in diabetes and spinach can play an important role in that.
