Wants To keep Diabetes under Control? Have Cinnamon.

One of the healthiest spices on the planet, cinnamon can transform the taste of many dishes. As a matter of fact, it was considered more valuable than gold. Mesmerized? Well, yes you should be! Because the subtly sweet spice has numerous health benefits and even a pinch of cinnamon can add sweetness and flavor to your snacks with no extra sugar.


However, do you have any idea cinnamon can also help lowering blood sugar level?

A study from the Diabetes Care Journal showcases promising results on humans with Type-2 diabetes. According to the reports, those people consumed this cinnamon for about 40 days along with a washout period of 20 days. Surprisingly, they experienced about 7-27 % reduction in the level of LDL cholesterol with a 12-26 % reduction in the total cholesterol levels. Similarly, other studies also reflect that taking cinnamon supplements might play a crucial tole for supporting blood sugar regulation. The idea is supported by the fact that glucose levels present in the blood can return to normal with Ceylon cinnamon.

Other Benefits of Cinnamon, So, here are some of its possible health benefits.

Cinnamon and Cholesterol Level Regulation

As per a study appearing in the National Library of Medicine, USA, it was revealed that Ceylon cinnamon can help in boosting HDL cholesterol. For the record, HDL cholesterol is good cholesterol which improves the total cholesterol in your systems. Furthermore, this “good” cholesterol can also reduce health risks concerning cholesterol.

Cinnamon and Memory-Enhancement

Are you surprised to read “Ceylon cinnamon and memory-enhancement”? Well, don’t be. Because, according to a study, nutraceuticals derived from certain spices, for instance, cinnamon, turmeric, cloves, etc. might be vital to support brain health. Furthermore, some researches also cite that bioactive constituents present in it can also slow down brain aging by increasing brain activity.

Ceylon Cinnamon and Inflammation

Inflammation can be the root cause of all pains and aches for many. In several instances, aches or pains can be related to inflammation. However, one of the active constituents present in cinnamon is proanthocyanidins, an antioxidant that can help people dealing with aches or pains.

3 Ways To Take Cinnamon For Diabetes

  • Cinnamon Powder – The easiest way to take. A maximum of 1.2 tsp. of Cinnamon powder per day is said to be beneficial.
  • Cinnamon Sticks – If you decide to use Cinnamon sticks, the best way is to make Cinnamon stick tea. Boil a cinnamon stick on medium low            heat for 25 min in 2 cups of water until it becomes deep red and let it sit for 10 – 15 min and then drink.
  • Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil – From personal experience and talking to people who have taken it, we can tell you this is shockingly effective to lower your blood sugar levels. Be careful. Use 3 drops of Ceylon Cinnamon Bark at most as the oil is warm in nature. Take too much and it will lower your blood sugar levels too much, leaving you lightheaded and weak.
    If you are mildly diabetic start with only one drop in 1cup of tea, coffee or ginger tea.

My Conclusion

Certainly, adding cinnamon to your food or drinking a cup of cinnamon tea should be fine. But my advice is this:
Always check with your health-care provider before taking this or any type of supplement.

  • Check your blood sugars regularly to see what the effect is on your own blood sugars. (Everyone is different! What works for others may not work for you.)
  • Don’t stop taking your diabetes medication without checking with your doctor.
  • Give yourself a time frame in which to see results. If you’re not seeing any improvements in your blood sugars and/or HbA1c, stop taking it.
