Particular Anti-diabetogenic Foods
The protective action against the oxidative stress of red cabbage (Brassica oleracea) extract was investigated in diabetes-induced rats for 60 days. 49 researchers found a significant increase in reduced glutathione and superoxide dismutase activity and a decrease in catalase activity and in the total antioxidant capacity of the kidneys. Daily oral ingestion of B. oleracea extract from cabbage for 60 days reversed the adverse effects of diabetes in rats. They found lowered blood glucose levels and restored renal function and body weight loss. In addition, the cabbage extract attenuated the adverse effect of diabetes on malondialdehyde, glutathione, and superoxide dismutase activity as well as catalase activity and total antioxidant capacity of diabetic kidneys. In conclusion, the antioxidant and antihyperglycemic properties of B. oleracea in cabbage may offer a potential therapeutic source for the treatment of diabetes.
