Yam Is Good To Improve Hyperglycemia

2018-11-04 14:09

As to Yam, it is very popular in our lives and it is also called potato, potato medicine, Yanzhang, Yuyan, etc. China’s edible yam has a history of more than 3000 years. Since ancient times, it has been praised as a good product for supplementing deficiency.

The nutritional value of yam lies not only in its nutritional function, but also in its dietetic function. According to modern scientific analysis, yam not only contains rich starch, protein, inorganic salt, vitamins ( such as vitamin B, vitamin B: niacin, vitamin C, carotene ) and other nutrients, but also contains a large amount of cellulose, choline, mucilage and other components.

Traditional Chinese medicine believes that yam is sweet in nature and tastes and acts on the lung, spleen and kidney meridians. It has effects in strengthening spleen and stomach, invigorating lung qi, nourishing kidney and essence, treating diabetes and diarrhea, and can be used for treating asthenia, mental fatigue, anorexia, dyspepsia, chronic diarrhea, cough due to fatigue, tuberculosis, nocturnal emission, night sweat, leukorrhagia, diabetes, and night urination.

Yam can effectively improve hyperglycemia, and the sticky and slippery components in yam are also formed by mucin. mucin can wrap other foods in the intestine, allowing sugar to be slowly absorbed. This effect can inhibit the sharp rise of blood sugar after meals, and at the same time, it can avoid excessive insulin secretion, so that blood sugar can be better regulated.

Yam also contains effective components such as magnesium and zinc, which are essential for insulin secretion, as well as vitamin B1 and vitamin B2. These components promote glucose metabolism in the blood. In addition, yam also contains amylase, which is an enzyme that digests sugar and can stop sugar from accumulating in the blood.
