【Diabetes Suitable Vegetable—Spinach】
Spinach is a leafy green vegetable with very few calories and is rich in fiber and vitamins. Very suitable for people with diabetes.

Spinach leaves contain an insulin-like substance, and its effect is very similar to that of insulin in mammals. Therefore, patients with diabetes (especially those with type 2 diabetes) may wish to eat some spinach regularly to keep blood sugar stable.

Spinach contains a carotenoid substance, which can prevent damage to the retina caused by sunlight. Eating spinach 2 to 4 times a week can reduce the risk of retinal degeneration. It has a preventive effect on diabetic retinopathy.
