TIME reports that certain kinds of foods may help lower insulin resistance and control blood sugar levels.

Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and King's College London analyzed flavonoid, blood sugar, and inflammation levels of 2,000 study participants. They also factored in insulin resistance linked to type 2 diabetes, and chronic inflammation, which increases the risk of diabetes, obesity, and heart problems.

“We found that those who consumed plenty of anthocyanins and flavones had lower insulin resistance,” says study author Aedin Cassidy.

“High insulin resistance is associated with type 2 diabetes, so what we are seeing is that people who eat foods rich in these two compounds–such as berries, herbs, red grapes, wine, tea and chocolate–are less likely to develop the disease.”
