Type 2 Diabetes: Preventable + Reversible!

Today is American Diabetes Alert Day. A “wake-up call” focusing on the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of knowing your risk. 

Nearly 25% of U.S. adults with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) don’t know they have it. Another 75M don’t know they have prediabetes--blood glucose levels higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

T2D is a major risk factor for heart disease; 67% with T2D die of cardiovascular-related diseases. 

Good news: T2D is preventable--even reversible! Try these proven steps: 

  • Lose weight and keep it off. Losing just 5-7% of your starting weight may prevent/delay diabetes. 
  • Move more. Try for 30 minute, 5 days/week. Exercises improves insulin sensitivity, helps build muscle and shed fat. Each help control blood sugar levels. 
  • Consume olive polyphenols. The phytochemicals from olives have been shown to improve blood sugar levels.

Olivino™ contains extracts of Coratina olives, a unique, fresh olive fruit harvested by hand in Italy that contains exceptionally high levels of polyphenols.
