Default New Salba Study - Benefit Found for Diabetics

A total of 11 men and 9 women, about 64 years old on average with well-controlled type 2 diabetes, consumed either 37 grams/day of Salba or wheat bran for 12-weeks. After a wash-out period, the participants switched treatments for another 12 weeks.

Otherwise, the participants did not alter their lifestyle or physical activity, the investigators report in Diabetes Care.

Systolic blood pressure significantly decreased by 6.3 mm Hg on average during Salba use. Moreover, the investigators found that Salba eased factors associated with inflammation and blood clotting, and improved glycemic control.

"Salba has a long history of human use (with) no present contraindications for individuals with diabetes or the general public," Jenkins said. However, she noted research in larger populations is needed to confirm the health benefits of Salba.
