In addition to their impressive nutrient profile and a long list of health benefits, Brussels sprouts may also help keep blood sugar levels steady.

Multiple studies have linked increased intake of cruciferous vegetables, including Brussels sprouts, to a decreased risk of diabetes (19Trusted Source20Trusted Source).

This is likely because Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar levels.

Fiber moves slowly through the body undigested and slows the absorption of sugar into the blood (21Trusted Source).

Brussels sprouts also contain alpha-lipoic acid, an antioxidant that’s been researched extensively for its potential effects on blood sugar and insulin (22Trusted Source).

Insulin is a hormone that’s responsible for transporting sugar from your blood to your cells to keep your blood sugar levels under control.

In one study, 12 patients with diabetes who were given alpha-lipoic acid supplements experienced increased insulin sensitivity.

The researchers proposed this was because the alpha-lipoic acid allowed insulin to work more efficiently to lower blood sugar (23Trusted Source).

Increasing your intake of Brussels sprouts alongside an otherwise healthy diet may help you keep your blood sugar levels stable.
