There is no denying the healing potency of cinnamon. This common spice has been proven to help better metabolize glucose and avoid the free radical and oxidative damage to cells that occurs when blood sugar levels remain high. What is more, studies show cinnamon also lowers cholesterol, which means of course that it protects against heart disease and metabolic syndrome. It seems too good to be true, that this delicious and familiar spice is a diabetes super-nutrient.
Research over the last five years validates such lofty status. One representative study divided subjects with Type 2 diabetes into six groups. Three groups took 1, 3 or 6 grams of cinnamon per day for 40 days. The other three groups took placebo capsules that matched up with the 1, 3, and 6 gram
groups. At the end of the trial, all three groups taking cinnamon supplements significantly reduced blood glucose, triglycerides, LDL (or bad cholesterol) and overall cholesterol. The placebo groups remained unchanged. The glucose and cardiovascular improvements increased as the cinnamon dose went up. Interestingly, the lowered glucose levels and triglycerides stayed low for 20 days before the end of the supplementation. It is difficult to add six grams of cinnamon to your daily diet, plus there are some researchers who have found that ingesting an overabundance of whole cinnamon might cause an adverse and unwanted reaction.
Cinnamon has some insoluble solids that can lead to potential chromosome abnormalities and, perhaps, pre-cancerous cells. (You know those solids if you have ever tried to stir cinnamon into a hot cup of coffee or cider; there is some residue at the top). Yet the solids/toxins issue is not as scary as it might sound. If you really insist on using your own cinnamon to reach 3 to 6 grams daily, then natural health practitioners recommend using up to one gram in your food and drinks. Boil the rest of your cinnamon dose in water, pouring off the infused water and discarding those solids floating on top. Another option is to take a cinnamon supplement that has already done the boiling treatment for you. Look for a water-soluble extract standardized to 0.95 percent trimeric and tetrameric A-type polymers. Take 125 mg of the extract three times per day. And do not forget to sprinkle some cinnamon into your protein smoothie, onto your oatmeal, or even onto chicken or halibut.
The miracle spice cinnamon is the scented bark of a tropical evergreen tree, native to India and Sri Lanka. Cinnamon comes from an evergreen tree in Southeast Asia and is cultivated widely in Vietnam, China, Burma, and Laos for its bark and the oil processed from the bark. Once upon a time in ancient Rome, cinnamon was worth more than silver.
Cinnamon is harvested from the inner bark of the tree branches after scraping off the corky outer layer and then drying the bark. As it dries, the bark curls up into quills which are then cut into sticks to be ground into the spice form. Full of calcium and fiber, cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices, it is mentioned in the Bible and was used in ancient Egypt as medicine, beverage flavoring and an embalming agent.
Professor Daniel Fung, an expert in food science at Kansas State University, says cinnamon contains a compound that has the ability to kill bacteria. "If cinnamon can knock out E.coli 0157:H7, one of the most virulent food-borne microorganisms that exists today, it will certainly have antimicrobial effects on other common food-borne bacteria such as Salmonella and Campylobacter."
Now researchers from Tel Aviv University found that extracts from cinnamon bark inhibit the toxic amyloid polypeptide oligomers and fibrils that have been found in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) brain plaque formations. In animal models of Alzheimer's, cinnamon reduced s-amyloid plaques associated with the pathology of AD. Reduction of these proteins can improve mental cognition. In one model, cinnamon extract resolved AD associate reduced longevity, helped recover locomotion defects and completely abolished tetrameric species of plaque in the brain.
Other benefits of cinnamon are: anti-microbial actions, blood sugar balancing, improving colon health, boosting brain function. Cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon has been well researched for its effects on blood platelets which help the blood clot to stop bleeding. Platelets can also cause strokes if they clump together too much. Cinnamon has been shown to help prevent this deadly clumping. Cinnamon will stop vomiting and relieve feelings of nausea. Cinnamon also helps slow tumor growth while inhibiting inflammatory markers connected to cellular proliferation.
Study volunteers who took a cinnamon extract showed significant decreases in fasting blood glucose and increases in lean muscle mass compared with the placebo group. Pre and post study analysis of the extract group revealed a statistically significant decrease in body fat and blood pressure.
Research found that cinnamon can have favorable effects on brain function. Participants in a study chewed cinnamon gum or even just smelled the sweet spice. Cognitive tests revealed that subjects who used cinnamon had better memory functions and could process information more quickly.
