Lower Blood Sugar and Reduce Risk of Diabetes with Cinnamon

By Julie Coburn

If anyone mentions the word cinnamon, the first thing that generally comes to mind is a spice that can be added to various dishes (sweet and savory) that will enhance the flavor. However, there is more to cinnamon than you think, and many scientists are on the trail of how this wondrous spice can enhance your health. Most notably, how it can help prevent the threat of Diabetes.

What Is Cinnamon?

Cinnamon is harvested from the inner bark of a number of trees that grow in Southeast Asia and China, and it comes in many forms. Most of us are well aware of the powdered variety, but it can come in stick form (for a more intense flavor) or even in capsules. Of course, the reason it’s available in capsule form is because of the health benefits.

Elevated Blood Sugar Levels

What’s interesting about many of the recent scientific studies is that cinnamon has proved to be very good at lowering (and controlling) fasting blood sugar levels. If you have not been diagnosed with Diabetes but are considered to be at risk of developing it, this will be because you have elevated fasting blood sugar levels.

If you’re one of the few people who think you’re not at risk, think again! It has recently been reported that a staggering 80 million Americans (that’s about 1 in 4 people) already have elevated fasting blood sugar levels. In other words, they’re pre-diabetic. If this isn’t dealt with it only means one thing – the development of Diabetes!

How Cinnamon Can Help

Cinnamon has long been used for a number of medicinal purposes. For instance, it can help lower cholesterol levels which, in turn, will reduce the risk of heart disease. The University of Texas has reported that cinnamon could possibly help reduce inflammation that’s linked with neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease; they have also reported this spice could help in the prevention of certain cancers.

However, all of this research is in its early stages. What we do know is that if you ingest between 1 and 3 teaspoons of cinnamon per day it will help to steady your blood sugar levels overall. This not only means that people who are diagnosed as pre-diabetic can avoid developing the full-blown disease, it will also help maximize energy levels and reduce mood swings.

You Have Nothing to Lose

It’s easy to ignore a disease if you haven’t actually got it, but there is a lot of truth in the saying “prevention is better than a cure”. Suffering from Diabetes can be life changing and not in a good way. So, if you’re looking for a healthy and natural way of keeping those blood sugar levels under control, give cinnamon a try!
