How cherries may help manage diabetes

Because they contain a variety of antioxidants, some of which have anti-diabetic qualities, cherries

are an excellent source of antioxidants. Because cherries are rich in fiber, consuming ten of

them may give the body 1.4 grams of fiber, or more than 10% of the adult recommended 

daily requirement.  Fiber prevents sugar from being digested quickly and raises blood

 sugar levels because it slows down digestion. Cherry glycemic index is quite low. 

Cherries also contain very few carbohydrates. One cup contains about 19 grams of carbs.
