The nutrients present in plum can destroy the diseased cells. Plums are high in Vitamin C as well, and helps in controlling cholesterol building in arteries. Plums can easily reduce blood sugar levels in the body by making it insulin sensitivity resistant. Concoction prepared with plum and different herbs can help fight against harmful effects of diabetes.
