A study, conducted on 60 patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes, revealed that performing yoga can help control the disease. Researchers found that practicing yoga controlled patients’ blood sugar levels, resulted in weight loss, and the participants reduced their body mass index from 25.9 to 25.4. The study also showed that yoga reduced the level of oxidative stress levels in the body, which occurred due to the increase of reactive oxygen in patients’ bodies. (Rise in oxidative stress can result in other various health disorders). Science is proving what yogis have known for ages – yoga has a positive effect on health!
