Mesquite: Natural Blood Sugar Balance

 

Blood sugar balance has become a big issue. It is estimated that over 25 million adults and children in the U.S. have diabetes. That’s over 8% of the population! Another 79 million people have blood sugar sensitivities that many consider to be pre-diabetic. Mesquite can be a delicious tool to help balance blood sugar and deliver a healthy dose of nutrition.

 

What is Mesquite?

Mesquite (Prosopis pallida) is a leguminous tree that makes its home in some of the driest climates on Earth. Mesquite powder is made by grinding up these seed pods into a fine meal, which is often used as flour. We are always interested in foods used by indigenous cultures and mesquite doesn’t disappoint. All over the Americas, from Chile to California, mesquite has been used by Indian populations for centuries as a reliable source of food in the harshest of climates. What is Mesquite?

 

Benefits of Mesquite

Mesquite has great value in its ability to help balance blood sugar levels. The sugars in mesquite come from fructose as opposed to glucose. Fructose does not require insulin for the body to use it. The soluble fibers found in mesquite cause it to be digested more slowly than foods like wheat or corn, which can cause spikes in blood sugar levels.

Plus mesquite contains a phytochemical called Quercetin which displays anti-diabetic properties.Mesquite also boasts impressive protein content and a solid variety of minerals, being especially high in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and sulfur.

Mesquite’s combination of calcium and magnesium makes it a great food for bone health. But native populations did not just use mesquite as a food. This sacred tree’s pods were also used medicinally, a practice supported by mesquite’s ability to enhance the immune system.
