However, many of the foods we eat have hidden glucose, which can lead to excessive levels of sugar in our system even though we are not aware of it.

People with high levels of sugar are advised to drink 8 to glasses with water per day, but other infusions and drinks can help control sugar levels, according to Step To Health.

There are some things to have in mind when drinking these plant-based infusions:

  • Do not sweet them with processing sugar that defeats their purpose.
  • If you have a sweet tooth and is necessary to add some sweetness to the drinks, as some might be bitter, try using sugars that are recommended for people with diabetes.
  • Since the sugar levels are lower before breakfast, is recommended to drink the infusions on an empty stomach so that they will have a more efficient effect.
