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!

Water-soluble cinnamon may be the answer to lowering blood sugar, naturally.

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...

Paul Davis, University of California, and Wallace Yokoyama of Western Regional Research Center, authors of another study explain the difference, "The fact that water extracts of cinnamon have (bioactive) activity suggests that these may be preferable in terms of use compared with whole cinnamon... Using water extracts of cinnamon achieves the desired blood glucose effects while avoiding the nonpolar constituents in whole cinnamon..." (in other words, high doses of regular cinnamon may have toxic effects.)

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.

Green coffee bean extract, besides H2O soluble cinnamon, may be the answer to controlling blood-sugar levels and spikes.

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.
