Diabetic or Pre-Diabetic? H2O Soluble Cinnamon Lowers Blood Sugar!
Diabetic or Pre-Diabetic: Read This To Lower Blood Sugar
Just published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, a study by researchers at Hannover University in Germany, proves that a water-soluble form of cinnamon extract actually lowers blood sugar in those who have Type 2 Diabetes, the most prevalent form of the disease!
This is great news!
Cinnamon and Blood Sugar: Lower It Naturally!
In a small, controlled study, some recipients received a cinnamon pill that contained 112 mg of water-soluble cinnamon extract. They took one pill three times daily. The others received a placebo.
The cinnamon group had a significant reduction in fasting plasma glucose levels, over 10% lower, versus the placebo group.
Why H2O Soluble Cinnamon Works...
How the researchers think it works: Water extracts of cinnamon are filled with compounds called procyanidins, and these are the compounds that are thought to lower blood-sugar levels.
This study was published in the Journal of Medicinal Foods.
Measure YOUR Blood-Sugar Levels
You need to get your blood-sugar levels tested. According to Life Extension Foundation, if your fasting blood sugar is over 85 mg/dL or you've had a oral glucose tolerance test that shows that your sugar levels spike to 125 mg/dL two hours after eating, then you may be suffering from toxic, after-meal, glucose surges. Life Extension suggests the use of green coffee bean extract to neutralize these surges.
Along with water-soluble cinnamon, it may now be possible to lower your blood-sugar levels and control sugar spikes, naturally.
NOTE: Cinnulin PF is currently the only water-soluble cinnamon available.
