Cinnamon: A Power-Packed Spice for Diabetics

Cinnamon is known for its spicy taste and comforting, warm scent, but did you know it also holds medical power for diabetics?

A study in Diabetic Medicine showed that cinnamon is a powerful natural agent for stabilizing blood sugar by controlling blood glucose. Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Combined with proper nutrition and exercise, cinnamon can help diabetics improve their health.

Here are five ways cinnamon can help your metabolism:

  1. Cinnamon improves the effectiveness of your body’s insulin while slowing the stomach’€™s emptying of food, thereby reducing sharp spikes in blood sugar following meals.
  2. Cinnamon includes a bioflavonoid called proanthocyanidin that may alter fat cells€™ insulin-signaling activity. Cinnamon also has “€œinsulin-like effects”€ thanks to a bioactive compound, making it a potential natural substitute.
  3. Cinnamon improves blood sugar regulation by increasing glucose metabolism by 20.
  4. Cinnamon enhances antioxidant defenses. According to a 2009 study, polyphenols from cinnamon might act as both insulin sensitizers and antioxidants, making them of special interest to overweight individuals with impaired fasting glucose.
  5. Cinnamon also supports digestive function, stimulates circulation with blood-thinning compounds, and relieves pain and stiffness in muscles and joints, among other health benefits.

Adding cinnamon to your diet is a cheap, healthy and flavorful way to prevent or combat type 2 diabetes. Holding diabetes at bay never tasted so good!
