Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes Type 2

Natural Dairy Fat Ingredient Aids in Reduction of Diabetes Type 2 Risk

Researchers has proven that a fatty acid called transpalmitoleic acid can substantially reduce the chances of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

Trans-palmitoleic acid is found in dairy fat, which goes against the advice of a significant number of health experts who tell people to avoid full-fat dairy produce.

They found that at baseline, healthier levels of blood cholesterol, insulin levels, insulin sensitivity, and inflammatory markers were linked to higher circulating levels of trans-palmitoleic acid, even after making adjustments for other risk factors.

They also found that people whose circulating levels of trans-palmitoleic acid were higher had a considerably lower chance of developing diabetes. Those in the top quintile of trans-palmitoleic acid levels had a 60% lower risk.

Trans-palmitoleic acid should not be confused with industrially produced trans fats, found in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils and associated with cardiovascular disease.
