If you feel off balance through the day due to a roller coaster of blood sugar highs and lows, cinnamon can add spice and everything nice to your life while helping to control blood sugar with its amazing insulin-regulating properties. It has other remarkable qualities as well: in studies it has been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels, soothe peptic ulcers and, more recently, boost cognition and memory.
Common Spice with Uncommon Effects
Found in kitchens all over the world, this heartwarming spice has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine for a wide range of digestive complaints. It comes from the bark of an evergreen tree that grows commonly in China and southern Asia. Chinese or “cassia” cinnamon is the most widely studied of all the cinnamon varieties.
Cinnamon and Insulin
Clinical evidence is mounting that cassia cinnamon can improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which equates to better blood sugar control and a reduction in circulating levels of insulin. This is important because too much insulin can signal your body to store any unused sugar as fat!. It is the polyphenols in cassia cinnamon, such as hydroxychalcone, that are thought to make cells more receptive to insulin so that they can better manage those blood sugar highs and lows. Studies also show that cassia cinnamon can slow the emptying of the stomach after meals, which reduces blood sugar spikes.
Cinnamon Relieves Inflammation
Cinnamon has other remarkable medicinal qualities: in studies it has been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels, soothe peptic ulcers and, more recently, boost cognition and memory. The polyphenols in cinnamon make it an antioxidant powerhouse that enhances the body’s ability to alleviate inflammation. Research suggests that these polyphenols can inhibit the release of arachidonic acid, a highly inflammatory molecule that may contribute to cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.
Cinnamon and Brain Health
A component found in the essential oil portion of cinnamon is cinnamaldehyde, which is also receiving scrutiny among researchers for its many health benefits. Like other volatile oils, cinnamaldehyde exhibits potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. In early studies it has been found to inhibit brain inflammation and thus hold promise in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
So, add cinnamon to your smoothies, your water bottle, your tea or your cooking for blood sugar balance and spice and everything nice!
Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure that the magic of every herb is unleashed. The result is a medicinal version of liquid gold. Each tincture is bursting with the healing power of nature. Rapid absorption of a tincture taken orally allows the body to quickly begin working to restore health on every level.
