The American Diabetes Association includes lemons on their list of superfoods due to soluble fiber and the high amount of vitamin C. Both soluble fiber and vitamin C can benefit people with diabetes. Lemons also have a low glycemic index, and some studies even show that lemon may lower the glycemic index of other foods.
When it comes to research on the benefit of eating lemon for diabetes, however, the research is slim. A 2015 meta-analysis in Primary Care Diabetes found that eating citrus fruits didn’t seem to lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. Citrus fruits do contain flavonoids, naringin, and naringenin, that have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant effects, says a 2014 study in Advances in Nutrition. However, there’s still not a whole lot of research into these compounds and their use in treating diabetes. (source: www.verywell.com)
