Broccoli extract lowers blood sugar in type 2 Diabetes

A chemical called sulforaphane could be a new option for people with type 2 diabetes who need help managing their blood sugar.
In a study just published in Science Translational Medicine, researchers randomized 97 people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes to take a concentrated broccoli sprout extract containing sulforaphane once a day for 12 weeks or a placebo with the same regimen. All but three of the participants were taking metformin, a standard treatment for controlling blood sugar.
