In the investigation of Genistein ameliorates hyperglycemia in a mouse model of nongenetic type 2 diabetes, posted in PubMed, found that Genistein increased the number of insulin-positive β-cell in islets,
promoted islet β-cell survival, and preserved islet mass. In conclusion,
dietary intake of genistein could prevent T2D via a direct protective
action on β-cells without alteration of periphery insulin sensitivity.
