Tai Chi Lowers Blood Sugar Levels, Research Finds

Jennifer Moore for SUGAR SHOCK! Blog

A 12-week program of Tai chi resulted in a drop in the insulin levels of 30 people with type 2 diabetes, according to new research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

In addition, another study, conducted in Australia and also published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, found that 11 people who followed a 12-week program of Tai chi and Qi Gong saw their BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, and blood sugar and insulin resistance levels improve.

Unlike many types of exercise, Tai chi isn’t hard on the joints and muscles, says practitioner Bruce Frantzis, who tipped us to these studies, on his Energy Arts website.

So it sounds like Tai chi would be great exercise for diabetics who are either elderly or extremely heavy — or for any person, for that matter.
