Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrients

Whole food(herbal medicine), linking health benefits in the prevention, management, and treatment of diseases has placed an important role in human history over many centuries. The finding of whole food medication by renowned scientists all over the world to replace the single ingredient of Western medicine with little or no side effect has been difficult due to no commercial benefit and patent right to producers.

Garbanzo beans also known as chickpea is an edible legume of genus Cicer and the family Fabaceae, high in protein and minerals. It is one of the earliest cultivated vegetables, native to the Middle East.

Diabetes is defined as a condition caused by insufficient insulin entering the bloodstream to regulate the glucose. It is either caused by cells in pancreas dying off or receptor sites clogged up by fat and cholesterol. In some cases, diabetes is also caused by allergic reactions of cells in the immune system.

The effectiveness of chickpea in reduced risk of type II diabetes, probably due to the existence of high amount of dietary fiber. According to the Case Western Reserve University, increased consumption of soluble and insoluble fiber is associated with improved glucose metabolism in both diabetic and nondiabetic individuals.

People who follow high-fiber, high-carbohydrate diets over time, can see the benefits in controlling body weight, insulin requirements, glycemic control, and serum lipids up to 10 years of follow-up.

In the review of 14 randomized clinical trials, Dr. Wolfram T and research team found that addition of insoluble or soluble fiber to meals, increased consumption of diets rich in whole grains and vegetables, and vegan diets improve glucose metabolism and increase insulin sensitivity. The greatest improvement in blood lipids, body weight, and hemoglobin A(1c) level occurred in participants following low-fat, plant-based diets.

In fact, " High-fiber diets, especially of the soluble variety, and soluble fiber supplements may offer some improvement in carbohydrate metabolism, lower total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and have other beneficial effects in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)", Dr. Vinik AI and Dr. Jenkins DJ said.

Furthermore, The American Diabetes Association recommends a goal of 40 g of soluble fiber intake per day for a patient with diabetes.

Taking all together, chickpea with a high amount of dietary fiber may be considered as a functional food in reduced symptoms and complications of patients with diabetes.
