Cusa Tea Premium Instant Tea
If you’re looking for a delicious, healthy beverage that is free from calories and carbs, reach for a stick of Cusa Tea. Tea has a number of health benefits that might just benefit your diabetes. For example, research shows that tea — black, white and green — may improve insulin sensitivity, thanks to substances found in tea called polyphenols. This, in turn can make it easier to get and keep your blood sugars within your target range. Cusa Tea bypasses the need to steep. Simply tear open a “stick,” pour it into your favorite mug, and add hot or cold water. You’ll have a delicious, nutritious tea in seconds — literally.
