American Diabetes Association Diabetes Alert Day ® is observed annually on the 4th Tuesday in March. This the 1-day wake-up call to inform the American public about the seriousness and dangers of diabetes, particularly when diabetes is left undiagnosed or untreated.
Renovation Tea is extending this awareness to encompass the whole month as we feel diabetes awareness is the most serious preventable health concern of our generation.
We have several beneficial products to help you control and prevent your diabetes.

Healthy Eats: This week we are featuring Sweet Potatoes (aka Yams)!
Sweet potatoes are a Superfood, especially for diabetics, says the American Diabetes Association. They have been shown to stabilise blood-sugar levels by lowering insulin resistance and they contain a high amount of fibre, which also helps to reduce levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol in the body.
